  1. here's another comment from someone on that board explaining their HSV2 symptoms - I cry; I cry deeply seemingly for no real reason. Whenever I cry like that I know a genital herpes outbreak is about to happen. Something from within would like to convince me to end it... but I have come to notice the internal signal and call it what it is; a herpes outbreak, but I think people could possibly be susceptible to suicide during this part of it. It is a weird mental and physical state just prior to the blister, and if one is not aware it could be detrimental. It is exhausting overcoming this aspect.
  2. what one person said on another site - Lately I have been experiencing pain in my lower back, it is hard to get out of bed, and bend down to tie shoes. I also had flu like symptoms, diarrhea, nausea, loss of appetite and insomnia. When these things kick in it usually indicates an outbreak of genital herpes is coming. Sometimes, I'll get a rapid heartbeat and constantly have to urinate. I have known about this since 13 years ago.
  3. Well sure, in the past I've done all kinds of google searches ie Herpes Prodrome Anxiety, or Genital Herpes Prodrome symptoms... You have to click around... But I think the best info you are going to get is from those that actually have it such as those you find on here... I've had this hsv2 since back in 2000 (around there) and after so many outbreaks and the feelings and sensations you get just before that outbreak occurs, you begin to see a pattern... I know when mine come on because I'll usually wake up from a poor nights sleep and just feel "off." Then I often will notice a change in my mood, I'll get songs stuck in my head sometimes even... Sometimes, I'll feel when it's going to be a bad outbreak, I'll get this feeling of wanting to cry or anticipate doom for no reason... I'll get sad thinking about family that I didn't spend enough time with,etc.. (typical stuff you'd think about when your mood is down/surpressed.) I usually stay in that frame for a few days to maybe even a week or more... constant light sleep, getting up going to the bathroom, laying back down unable to fall back asleep... All this stems from the herpes manifesting on the system... It's not just the physical symptoms that it works on... The thing I always look for.... The outbreak... cause I know that once that happens, it's game over for the HSV for a while and I can return to feeling normal again... And it always does after the outbreak..
  4. thought I'd share this one from someone who has hsv2 , read it on another board today - I cry; I cry deeply seemingly for no real reason. Whenever I cry like that I know a genital herpes outbreak is about to happen. Something from within would like to convince me to end it... but I have come to notice the internal signal and call it what it is; a herpes outbreak, but I think people could possibly be susceptible to suicide during this part of it. It is a weird mental and physical state just prior to the blister, and if one is not aware it could be detrimental. It is exhausting overcoming this aspect.
  5. yea when you shave down there and after a few days when it starts to grow back , that sensation can cause a problem (esp for men.)
  6. the weird feeling in the colon , can you describe it? If it itches (esp after elimination) then yea... that is herpes at work there... when it's in the prodrome phase it'll do that as well as that fatigue you're getting... The good news is... it comes and then it goes just as fast and you will feel good again.. Just let it run it's course and be patient with the process.. when those symptoms get strong, remind yourself, it's nothing serious...
  7. yea onlyhuman, you are not alone in this struggle... I think a lot of people that have anxiety/depression may not even realize this may be the culprit!
  8. gypsy86 - You'll be able to tell if you start doing a journal each day... You'll start to notice a trend when you get those prodrome symptoms kick in , ie - anxiety, elevated pulse, depression, sadness, keyed up feeling, fatigue, loss of appetite, no desire for sex, dry mouth, insomnia... etc.. When you start getting that way for a few days and that is followed up with either a lower back pain or the back of your legs get a sore tenderness, then you know the outbreak part is imminent (for me anyways.) This is how it usually has occured for me. I don't take Valtrex or any HSV pills
  9. Sun - HSV actually DOES cause anxiety in the prodrome stage... I myself have dealt with it for years now.. That other person that replied to this saying it does not is giving you inaccurate info. There is actual info online if you search hard enough for it, but I can tell you first hand that when in the prodrome phase of an outbreak, it can in fact cause a lot of the anxiety symptoms.. Just hang in there.. it passes...
  10. yea that's not the flu... that is the hsv active in your system... I've got the same issue with the loss of appetite.. it happens before an outbreak.. the outbreak is the final stage of it all... It's a nasty feeling to have to go through though that prodrome stage but once you get past that point, you feel good again...
  11. absolutely... and I hope that more people will come to this forum and express themselves about it... It's not fun living with this at all but there is comfort in knowing what's happening inside...
  12. Here's a list of the "Prodrome" symptoms that I have had... People always talk about the actual genital herpes outbreak but it goes far beyond that... here are some of the sensations a person can get before the actual outbreak , if you know more, reply to this and add to it... - anxiety -depression - Insomnia - loss of appetite - dry mouth - blister on tongue - tingling on back of legs/feet - excessive thinking / over worrying - increase in pulse/heartrate - weak, fatigue, tired, rundown - sadness, feeling like wanting to cry for no reason
  13. Thanks Grace... yea it effects the mood (for me anyways) I tried to search out stuff online but the unfortunate part about it is, there isn't a whole lot out there... I get the feeling that HSV gets the back seat with studies because of the fact that it's not life threatening like HIV and the others... I think I read a couple guests on here saying they had some depression and insomnia as well when I did a search on the forum here... one person replied to them saying "no" it's not possible which made me want to sign up to tell them that that person was incorrect and that yes... it does effect the mood, nervous system in some way, esp before one...
  14. new to this site but not new to HSV-2... I've had it for over 20 yrs now... I can tell exactly when it's coming on too because I'll get low, depressed, get insomnia in the days leading up to an outbreak. I'll also get anxiety and loss of appetite... my pulse will even go up... then when I get the outbreak... it's like a release and I can calm my nerves because that usually means the end to the drama... Can anyone else here relate to this one? But just like clockwork... I get it... nice to meet all of you... all very brave and congratulate you on finding this cool site
