I tested positive for HSV 2 in a virual culture test in 9/2010 and just about lost my mind. Every since being infected and then testing positive there is a constant itching or crawling feeling in/around my vulva and all over my body. Feels like something is crawling on me all the time. My entire body aches. Have read blogs and some people say that HSV don't cause everyday and constant bodyaches,itching and crawling feeling, I beg to defer because it does it to me and am tormented by it daily,feel like I've lost my mind. Even when I masturbate because I no longer have intercourse, the fluid make me itch even more. This is hell! The Dr prescribed me Valtrex for 10 days after the diagnosis. Currently take L-Lysine everything with a multivitamin. A childhood friend has come into my life and I'm ashamed and embarrassed to allow him in my life for the fear of infecting him like I was infected the only difference is I would tell the other person and not infect them on purpose like I feel that I was.
as you already know from reading, herpes won't cause these issues. At this point you need to be seen by your gyn regularly and also your regular provider to try to figure out what is going on so you can properly treat whatever the cause is.
