Terri, it just occurred to me that my antiviral treatment could skew my bloodwork results…if I came back positive for HSV1 (which I know I have) and negative for HSV2, would you have confidence in the HSV2 results or is the detection of HSV1 and HSV2 totally independent of the other?
Update – just submitted bloodwork and will now hold breath. Also, the burning sensation was very extreme yesterday on the bottom of my feet. Felt like I was standing on hot cement most of the afternoon. Today was basically the fifth day in a row of not really feeling any tingles / burning in the morning and then they return to same spot just left of my tip in the afternoon. Is this pattern with herpes common, assuming I have it?
