Hi Shana -
Was just confimed as having HSV 2 this weekend and have been dealing with neuropathy related issues prior - have done a bit of research into this and it would seem the HSV could cause the things we are experiencing (although currently in my case it mostly and primarily attributed to a bad flu vaccine reaction that I had in Dec) However, since it is a disease of the nerves it may produce some irritation etc...
Grace will hopefully provide additional info on this - for now, just know that you are not alone.
genital herpes recurrences will not last for months at a time.
how were you originally diagnosed as having genital herpes? what testing did you have done?
did you have an abnormal pap and hpv testing or just test + for hpv on a pap?
when hsv causes systemic issues , it's typically with the newly acquired infections, not from an infection you have had for a few months or longer. Even at that, the incidence of that occurring is incredibly small. I'd approach whatever is going on as being totally separate from your hsv and hpv to be honest. So many viral infections can cause issues and we can't really test for them easily to figure it out quickly. Continuing to follow up on this with your neurologist is in your best interest.
I was diagnosed with hsv through a blood test, and had an abnormal pap & later a biopsy which showed minor displasia from hpv.
I will be following up with my doctor regarding the recent blood tests and hopefully will get some answers.
Thanks for your help..
