I also had very bad canker sores on the inside of mouth in the cheeks that stayed 2 weeks each and hurt very bad. 3 in 6 months after the IGM test was done. What really bothers me is that once I educated myself on herpes. I called the urgent care twice to confirm that it was IGG not IGM and I was told both times that it was IGG not IGM. For me to have to call the lab to get the right info is absurd. I’ve been on Reddit talking to the mods and they are telling me the only real HSV2 tests I’ve taken are the 4 IGG tests from labcorp that are all negative. They also tell me to disregard the IGM it doesn’t tell the difference betweeen type 1-2.
I have a random question on a scale of 1-10. 10 being the stigma. What is worse the actual virus or the stigma of the virus?
Terri thank you again for all the work you do.
