I'm a male and was diagnosed with HSV2 in June and had an inital outbreak that lasted 5 weeks and 1 week ago had a second outbreak. Since the first outbreak I've been experiencing severe sensitivity in my buttocks, upper legs, and pubic area and cannot stay seated for more than and hour. Couple questions: is this common? is this permanent nerve damage due to the virus? or am I continually experiencing an internal outbreak with no external signs?
i am also interested in knowing about potential nerve damage or long term nerve effects. i had a doctor recommend lyrica for the neuropathic pains. i don't want to have to take hardcore neurological drugs all my life
