Terri, thanks for the reply!
Here are my 2 follow up questions:
1. Can you elaborate on my Igg result indicating a previous hsv infection? I’m guessing I wouldn’t have> 62 within a couple weeks of infection.
2. What would you do next if you were me? I seem to have some recurring problem or a problem that fluctuates in severity. I’ve been in pain for almost 6 months, I’m taking a high dose of Valtrex and 2400g of Gabapentin a day and soon switching to Lyrica because Gabapentin no longer works.
I’m thinking of seeing a dermatologist or a urologist next. The problem is that my penis shows virtually no physical sign of anything out of the ordinary. My doctor has looked at it, the infectious disease doctor has looked at it, my neurologist has looked at it and none of them saw anything strange physically, yet I am in constant pain.
Not sure what to do…
