Doc... Im worrying myself sick

Dr. Warren please tell me what you think. If you look back at my first post with you, you will see what I posted. I'm scared out of my mind. I really dont know what will ease my mind about this situation. I have this dull feeling on my butt thats really making me think Herpes. I have had three negative IGG results with the last one being 6 months post exposure. I just read a post that this guy tested negative, then had a wiered feeling on th butt; retested and he was positive. What are my chances at having HSV2 after being negative at 6 months? Is the feeling people get on thier butt a initial outbreak or reoccurance?  Please Doctor talk to me if I was your son. This was a seriois bad decision that I wish I could take back. 6 Months should be enough time right? How can I move pass this? I want to believe my results, but this feeling is killing me. I dont want to test again at all; is there a need to. Still as of now, there are no bumps, lesions, paper cut tares or anything. Just this butt feeling and a pinching feeling that comes and goes in the tip of penis head.

Honestly, I don't think you have herpes, but I don't know who to help you believe that.  

As for the person who said they tested negative, then positive:  we don't know those circumstances.  We don't know any medicine that he might have taken to affect his test results, we don't know if his positive was actually a true positive, we don't know the time intervals, we just don't know enough for you to base anything on someone's internet statement.  We don't have any idea if this is even true or something made up for purposes of freaking people out.  PLEASE GET OFF THE INTERNET!

If you want to order a western blot for confirmation, I can help with that.  But perhaps what you really need is a therapist.

Thanks. Its just stuff keep coming up like this very faint circular pattern on my left butt cheek. Its smooth and not raised. I sometimes feel it when my underwear moves over it. It doesn't hurt or anything. Is it normal for lessons to show six to seven months later accompanied with three negative igg test?

A very faint circular pattern on your buttocks is not herpes.
You are driving yourself nuts about this.  You need to stop focusing on your genital so much and get on with your life!  Volunteer with a charitable organization, give of your time to help people with true life threatening problems by driving people to chemo, something.  You need  to get some perspective here.

I am not going to answer any further questions from you.  I feel that by continuing to address every little something that you note, I am continuing to feed into your fears.  

You are a troubled person, and I feel badly for you, and hope you get the professional help that you truly need.
