Thanks Ziva. I definatly feel like stress could be a very very possible factor. I am having a lot of issues in my life at the moment. The last time the dr saw me, she didn't believe that the HSV1 is any problem- however gave me a script for antideppresents. I did take it but, it was too strong for me and had me feeling horrible. I just want to know if I have HSV1 down below.... I have no idea- I mean, I think so...but I do not know for sure and the doctors don't believe so at this point. Its really fraustrating. I do get tingling on my lips/nose-but, i have not had any sores at all!!?? and i get the tingling a lot!! It's beyond me!! I just wish I could wave a magic wand and get past all of this mess!! Thanks for talking with me on here!!View Thread
I didn't mean to come off as ignorant. Surprisingly, I have educated myself the past ten months- without knowing what it is that is really the issue. I still do not know for sure. That is what is fraustrating. I still have many questions which is why I have taken it upon myself to create this account and ask. I do not judge anyone on here, I myself have known people who have HSV2 and I do not think any less of them. I have not ever had anything cultured- all I know is that I had a positive HSV1 blood result and over the past ten months have suffered from so many issues down below and have been seen numerous amounts of times- but, still have no definite answers. That is what is depressing me. I wouldn't consider the thought of dating until I KNOW for sure what is going on with me. That is my thoughts and feelings. I just want to know what is wrong.View Thread
So I went back to the OBGYN and she said that she "does not care about the positive HSV 1 result and that it doesn't matter" ok-- she did not give me the script to get the blood work again because she said HSV1 is not important!! I questioned her why it would be negative in June and Positive now after I have had no sexual contact for a year almost & her response was that it didn't matter! I can not go to another OBGYN bc I have no insurance- this is my only affordable option. Im beyond fraustrated right now!!! View Thread
I just was wondering - the hsv 1 igg did not show up over a period of 10 months. Prior to that it was always negative.. my question is how long does it take for an igg to show up?? Why wouldn't it have shown prior to that? & how you said "1.69 is a low positive result"... would it be high if it was aquired 10 months ago?? sorry to ask a million questionsView Thread
Sorry about the duplicates- My computer keeps freezing up on me & I don't think they are posted and then "wha-la" they are. Not trying to be a pain in the butt...Im not the best with technology unfortunatly. I appreciate you guys listening to how I feel because for the past 10 months I have felt completly alone. I've only consoled in my mother & while I know she "tries" to help.. She thinks I want her to solve my problems- but I just need someone to listen. Quite honestly- it's making me hate myself. I don't know how to not right now... I don't know.View Thread
my exact numbers were the hsv 1Igg= 1.69 and hsv2igg=negative <.90 ........the weird thing is I read that it's not "a bad one" but, I have issues pretty much CONSTANT through out the month like twice a month. By the time one episode is feeling semi better- round two comes. its pretty much before and after my cycle.View Thread
Omg hand sanitizer??? OUCH!!! I am not on ANY medicine. I just started taking Pro-biotics...I really dont want to have to take medication, however--- I will have to if I want to feel "normal". . . I haven't talked to my dr about it yet actually. When I called for the results- the secratary was a b-otch and so I went to the hospital and picked up the results myself and brought them to a dr office i USED to go to when i had insurance & the nurse thier read them and explained stuff to me. I am in NJ... waiting for this hurricane which should be an expieriance! Apparently this is going to "go down in history"..where are you from?View Thread
