Around two months ago a had a protected encounter with a female escort. I have not developed any herpes blisters but my left leg (calf area) and foot has been feeling numb for about a month now with different degrees of severity. Could this potentially be a symptom of HSV2?
Cool thanks. Well I do have HSV1 but I haven't gotten cold sores yet. Had an initial baseline test done at 4 days post encounter that was positive for that. I probably got it as a child because my dad would get cold sores sometimes. So maybe I should do 16 weeks for the test. I have had some severe anxiety after this encounter. Do you think that this could cause my symptoms?
