Terri -Thanks. Believe this will be my last post.
For #1 in my last post I was referring to false positives. Not false negatives, as if you keep re testing don’t you have a risk of a false positive?
#2 above – nothing missing in the explanation. Went to std clinic and went onto the table with no pants on for examination, however I don’t think the linens were changed before I entered the room.
I have always been very cautious and yes I agree that I didn’t put my self at much risk even with the initial exposure. However these tingling sensations and the appearance of sores has given me quite a scare.
For example when sleeping last night I was awaken by tingling in my left buttock and there is a single sore there that looks like a pimple type thing. It was more inflamed initially yesterday when I noticed it. Inflammation has decreased over night but looks like a little pimple with a small white middle, size of the type of the head of a pin. is there a typical form of herpes that you usually see on the buttocks?
Only thing left would be to fly to Portland to see the expert, you!
Thanks for your assistance during this time.Cards1918Participant
Thanks Terri. Couple of follow ups.
1. If I did decide to retest, out of curiously are there any stats of false positives if you keep “re testing?” Also you would not suggest I even retest, correct?
2. So there is 0% risk for the exposure mentioned in number 2 above? As it just seemed like the perfect storm from date of exposure to symptoms.
3. For my own knowledge to acquire hsv1 orally would this require a deep kiss or would just pecks on the lips be able to transmit?
4. I now have been getting tingling in my nose, on the right tip and I start googling and see that you can get herpes in your nose. I have no signs of any blisters Etc. but also read that this can be caused by stress which I’m going to chalk it up to, any thoughts here?
5. I was told that I had CMV as a baby and have read that is in the herpes family. Any concern here as I guess this stays with you for life too? And is there any precaution I should take when planning my own family? As I was told I almost died within the first week of childbirth because of this. I certainly don’t want to pass that on to my child as we are planning children soon.
6. I would like to but I keep getting these tingling feelings in my butt. But I understand that with herpes it is not a constant episode but recurrent ones? So this doesn’t sound typical?
7. This whole episode has really been affecting my personal and professional life but hope to move on. Do you think that I’m at a stage medically where I can do that?
Thanks for your time Terri.
