  1. Hey there, I had the same issue and I'm a runner too so I get it and know how you feel but I can tell you that it gets better and eventually should go away. It took about a full month for me to somewhat feel normal again and get back to doing the things I was used to. Hang in there. Take some ibuprofen if you need to, it'll help.
  2. Well that would be pretty damn awesome if that's the case! Although, what could've made it positive with the swab though? I'm new to this so I don't have any advice and will probably wait a year or so to get tested again to see what my levels are.
  3. Thank you for sharing this. H is all new to me and I have experienced the exact same things that you've mentioned. I'm still at the part of feeling like I'll never find love again and hating myself for having this. I'm glad to hear that he was able to help you get through this. 🤗
  4. Thanks for posting this. A cure would be really nice. I'd even settle for a vaccine at this point as well to at least protect the people we're with so we can't transmit to anyone regardless of how safe or aware we are.
  5. Hey there. I had the same issue with the leg pain. I'm a runner so I can sympathize with how you're feeling. It took about a month for the leg pain to go away for me and feel somewhat normal again, physically at least. I did take some ibuprofen and that seemed to help it a little bit. I would take it about an hour before either running or working out and it helped on some days. And for me that was the last symptom to go away too. Hang in there. I know it's frustrating. I was just diagnosed in early January so this is all new to me too.
  6. I wish it were too but maybe that's a good thing in that this is not something that is as big of a deal as us newly diagnosed feel that it is. I just got HSV2 last month and I'm still having a hard time coming to terms with it. In fact it took about a month for all the symptoms and side effects of my first outbreak to go away so now that I'm "feeling" a bit normal again I'm venturing back into the dating scene but I know now that it's going to be different. Trying to navigate this new norm is a bit tough to figure out so I enjoy reading what people post in here to give insight, tips, advice
  7. @snowflake123 Nope, not taken that way at all. You're young and these are the years to have fun, so to speak, so I definitely understand what you meant. I was kind of the opposite. Got in a long term relationship at 20 years old and never had that experience of just casual sex so when I got divorced and then left a bad relationship 1.5 years ago, I took a break and then entered the world of casual sex last year and unfortunately that's how I ended up in this position. So I do get it, I just experienced it later in life.
  8. Hey there. Unfortunately I don't have any advice for you since I'm newly diagnosed at 40 years old with HSV-2, but I definitely understand how you feel when you say that you feel that your sex life is over. I think regardless of age, many of us feel your thoughts. It's definitely not something any of us signed up for and it's sad that we are the knowing ones who now carry this burden on us to have to disclose to other people. I hope you can somehow find a way to get through this and know that this doesn't define who you are as a person, you just need to make small changes in the sex depart
  9. Is it true that if the swab is positive then there's really no need to go any further? That's what my doctor said when my blood test results came back negative. He said it was too early to show up in my blood but the positive swab was enough to know that I have HSV-2 and positive is positive and there's no need to test again. 🤷‍♀️
  10. Hi Everyone. 40 year old single mom here from NJ. Just diagnosed with HSV-2 and not quite sure what to make of it. Fighting through my first OB as we speak but could use a friend just to talk this out with. Male/Female, doesn't matter to me, doesn't even have to be in NJ.
  11. @mr_hopp Thank you for explaining that. I did try to run a few days ago and while the run felt good, my leg hurt really bad after so I haven't run since. This is really hard mentally, emotionally, and physically. The thoughts in my head are out of control but I've been reading through the posts here and watching many of your videos to try to come to terms with this. Right now I just want my body back to normal before I really dive into the emotional side of this. I just turned 40 which was hard enough and now this. 😔
  12. Hi Everyone. I'm really glad I found this place. First post in here. I just tested positive for HSV2. What started as a small bump, turned into another and then I went to the OBGYN out of concern and was swabbed and they took blood. That was last Friday. Got a call from the Dr yesterday that the swab came back positive but he's still waiting for the blood test results. I'm devastated to say the least. Anyway, during this time I have had the flu like symptoms, my right leg muscles have been hurting (quad today, hamstring tomorrow, groin the next, etc), I have no desire to do anything an
