Loss of Appetite, Anxiety during Prodrome

Recommended Posts

Since a lot of people have been commenting about this lately, I'm just going to go ahead and post my own topic... I've had genital herpes for a little over 20 yrs now..  I don't take valtrex, I just learned to live with it...  A lot of people have been posting wondering if just before an outbreak occurs, how a person may feel...  I'm here to tell you, you get a lot before hand (for some.)  For me...  I can tell when I have any of these symptoms, an outbreak may occur soon-


- sleep issues, toss/turn all night

- frequent urination or urinating to point of dehydration

- loss of appetite

- shaky body

- nausea

- back pain/joint pain

- anxiety/depression

- sadness (feeling of wanting to cry for no reason)

- tingle in back thighs

-itchy eyes/redness

- dull feeling of not wanting to do anything

- not interested in sex


  There are probably a bunch more which I'd love to hear from all you on what you deal with... Of course not ALL these symptoms happen all together... but during the course of all the years of having it...  these have come about... maybe a few at a time... Sometimes you end up having an outbreak after... sometimes you don't... I tend to like when the outbreak happens though cause I know that's the last stage of all this drama...  feel free to chime in...
