I have HSV2 (caught from my ex when we were first married, she was pregnant and didn't realize she was having an outbreak) and since November when I had earth shaking stress come down on me with my father almost dying several times, and other incredible stresses at the same time, I began to have burning pain in the urethra, testicles, perineum, pubic bone area, as well as what felt like up by the prostate.
I have been to many doctors and had tests done. I am (bacterial) infection free. No cancers, etc.
This has literally debilitated me. I'm just wondering if anyone else who may have similar symptoms with no infection may have been told by a doctor that it could be postherpetic neuralgia caused by possibly the HSV2 virus, or any other Herpes virus like HHV6, 7, 8, etc... NOT JUST caused Herpese Zostra (shingles).
I have seen many doctors, and only one seemed to actually believe what I have could be PN. She said they see it a lot.
I just found it strange that out of the many doctors I've seen, only one has really given PN with HSV2 a real nod as a possible cause. A couple other doctors have say maybe, but didn't sound convinced or educated on the matter.
Apparently, from what I've researched, HSV2 can flair up along nerve channels even without a breakout - much like a prodrome, only more wide spread, and lasting much longer.
My only hope is that this, sooner than later, begins to go away, that my body can fight it off, because I feel like my life is over.
Unfortunately, the virus hides in the nerve channels where your immune system doesn't detect it, at least not very well.
Any input, or help on the matter is appreciated.
