good morning, I just did an internet search on burning skin sensations and landed right back here on medhelp.org neurology page. I have asked this in the past but it seems to be getting worse. I rec'd unprotected oral sex in early December and have been freaked out I have herpes. I tested negative at 11 weeks 3 days after the event but for the last few months the soles of my feet and patches of skin all over my body have had burning sensations. I have never had any noticable sores or ob's. I posted this here because of another post I read from 2000 in which someone had similar concerns.
Have you repeated any blood tests? And did you have this burning sensation earlier? There is probably a coincidence that this has happened after the event. Studies have shown that most of the herpes infections go without symptoms for a long time.
You must also consider other causes that might cause neuropathy. Rule out diabetes.
thanks for the response, the last test I had was at the 11 week 3 day mark. That was the 5th time I tested since December. The third time I tested, the results came back equivocal for HSV1, the 4th and 5th test came back negative. The 1st and last testing included HIV, Hepatitis B and C, Syphilis, Chlamydia, and gonorrhoeae. All results negative. I did not have the burning sensations before December. I have seen my family doctor who feels this is stress related since I was seperated from my wife at the time and are now back together and I have not told her about any of this including about the burning sensation. Since my family doctor has not run any tests, what would be your recommendation?
i have burning hands and feet and like sunburn feeling all over, feel hot all time but on occasion I freeze and can not get warm. I have gestational diabetes but I'm taking met foreman for this, still burn every day. Became worse after I had a c-section. Also heart pupitations, told I have 40%of my blood only pushing out of my heart and thickening of heart walls.but no idea why I burn.... Dr. Thinks neuropathy but I haven't been a diabetic a year yet..??
