What does HSV2 back pain feel like?

I've read that one of the symptoms that accompanies a ob in some people is back pain. But I've failed to find a description of that pain. My question is, how would you describe the back pain from HSV2? Is it like electric shocks? or a dull and constant ache? tingling or burning? etc...

(a more in depth description HSV2 pains of any area would be welcomed...)

Same as flu like symptoms, body aches

would that be a constant pain then? or would it be a sudden pain that stops quickly, then happens again a few minutes to hours later?

Herpes doesn't cause back pain at all. Urban myth.

Hey Howard, thanks for the response. I don't want to doubt your knowledge, but it says back pain is a symptom on the CDC website. Would you mind me asking why you say it is an urban myth?

Thank you
