  1. If you still check this site, I’m in the KC area.
  2. Any women on here live in KC? I'm in search of a GYN that will actually talk to me about my issues instead of dodging them. I'm SO tired of being alone in this struggle. I need a doctor that will actually listen and brainstorm options instead of just ignoring them.
  3. It frustrates me when I read so many posts that say ‘it gets better with time’. Mine is worse....so much worse. I will look into the red marine algae as I will try anything at this point. How do I go about finding someone that is trustworthy in Chinese medicine? And do they treat you the same as regular doctors ( skip over the topic or avoid it at all costs?)
  4. Hey there! I hope you get some responses to your post because I’m in the same boat. I’ve had this for over 20 years and I have constant outbreaks despite being on Acyclovir 400 mg twice a day. It’s never been this chronic and I also thought it was supposed to get easier the longer you have it. It’s the opposite for me. I am also healthy with exercise and eating. I’m about to change meds but am doubtful that will do anything for me. It’s extremely discouraging. I liked my ‘old’ h life so much better. I can barely get a day where I don’t have symptoms. It sucks. Just wanted to say you aren’t alone.
  5. WingingIt, thanks for reaching out. I'm so sorry for the loss of your boyfriend. That has to be so hard. I would say my stress level is pretty high, but it's been high for a long time. I think I would be able to tolerate the tingling, but the headache that is currently coming with my symptoms is just viscous. I sometimes wonder if the Acyclovir is causing the headache. Part of me wonders if I should just quit taking it for awhile and see if that helps. I've never had headaches before though when taking them (and I've taken all of them), or maybe I always just assumed the headache is part of the prodrome symptoms. I'm just discouraged and was hoping someone on here could give me a quick fix! I follow the research on the vaccine and it doesn't look like it's gaining momentum like it was. This makes me so sad because I was hopeful it could help!
  6. No menopause yet. I do still have one cup of coffee a day and occasionally eat nuts and yes I drink alcohol occasionally. But the thing is I have always done these things and never had a problem before. I don’t feel like I should have to cut all this stuff out especially if I’m on an antiviral. Sometimes I wonder if I have cancer or something and this is my body’s way of telling me!
  7. Hi all- I’m new here but have had HSV2 for over 20 years. The first 10-15 years I rarely had symptoms or outbreaks. This virus was extremely manageable for me. Over the past year it has become unmanageable. I have been on every antivirial out there and none of them seem to be working. I have symptoms ALL the time and the headaches that come with it are becoming unbearable. I have to believe this is what migraines are like. My symptoms used to be worse with my period, so after my last child was born I went on the pill taking it straight through to avoid a period all together. This certainly hasn’t helped as not a week goes by that I’m not feeling symptoms. Any thoughts, ideas, advice would be much appreciated. I eat well, exercise, and have tried Lysine and other supplements. It’s like my virus has been come resistant to everything. I thought the longer you have it, the less of an issue it is. This has been the opposite for me. I miss my old life where I never thought about it! It’s seriously taking a toll on my emotional health. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
