I was diagnosed with HSV 1 in June. I am currently going through another small outbreak. I am scheduled for total knee replacement on both knees in 8 days. I started taking acyclovir 3 times a day 2 days ago. I have been waiting for this surgery for years. Is this outbreak going to keep me from having the surgery? I am ready to just cry!

I think the peeing was the worst part for me. I stopped drinking and eating very much just so I would not have to pee. At first my primary thought it was only a UTI. It was not till the next night when I could not stand it anymore and went to the ER did I find out I was having an hsv ob. Of course it took forever to find out if it was 1 or 2. Meanwhile I suff...

I feel the same as you. I was just diag. with HSV 1 Jun 15th. I was in shock for a long time. I think I am still in shock. I suffered for 6 days before getting any meds. It was the most painful experience I can ever remember. Worse than giving birth. I continue to feel some discomfort and pain and tingling. Some times more than others. Just when I think I a...

`I feel as if I am going through another mini OB. There is some tingling and pain when I pee and it is sore when I wipe. Also during the day I feel sore for no reason and there are little pings of sharp pain. Again when I showered today as I past the water over my vagina there was discomfort. I touched myself last night. No arousal. Nothing. There was a bit o...

Well now it appears I am not getting enough iron. Go figure. My body is like a pendulum swinging back and forth. Either I am getting too much of something or too little. I never seem to balance out! I am such a mess. LOL The liver ultra sound showed stones in my gall bladder. Just my luck. I am told to watch for pain in my side radiating to my back. Differ...

I was diagnosed with HSV 1 just 2 months ago. It was my first OB. I also had a uti which along with the lesions made it extremely painful to pee. The OB lasted a week to 10 days. I still feel some tingling and a bit of discomfort. I am unable to enjoy any form of sexual activity myself. And experience great discomfort when there is any touching of my clito...

Sorry, hit the shift key -- HSV 1. Infect. Dis. Doc said for sure the tests indicated HSV 1. What about my sex drive?? Is it gone forever?? Even this morning while showering, I had the shower head on pulse and used it on my vagina and my clit as I always do to clean, and I always got a good jolt of excitement....today nada, nothing, zero....except a litt...

I finally spoke with someone from the infectious disease dept. at the VA. He explained my tests a little better for me. I did indeed have an HSV ! breakout. He ordered acyclovir for me to keep at home if/when I have another episode. (I am hoping I will never have to take them again!). I am feeling now that I may have had this all along. The aftermath of it...

I checked my lab tests on line again tonight. There was one for HSV1 AB and it was negative. There were no numbers associated with it and it was the only test reported on that particular serum lab. My culture results are not yet back. I will call my primary tomorrow and see what she has to say. I will also ask about the IGg test.
