Partner claims severe joint pain 1-2 weeks after exposure...

Recommended Posts

I was irresponsible and slept with someone twice without disclosing my condition (HSV2). I broke it off and told him. He now has severe knee pain, to the point he can barely walk. He blames me and wants me thrown in jail. He is certain it's herpes and that I've ruined his life. I don't know what to do, or if it's even possible for this to happen and so quickly. I don't know what to say to him or how to handle his anger towards me. Is it even possible, especially given the ultra-low possibility of transmission, for this to be happening?

Knee pain? Well, I guess it could be possible but what about other symptoms?? I would tell him if he's concerned to get a blood test done, and that if he hasn't done so with previous partners, he could very well have already been in contact with the virus.


Hasn't he been to a doctor for the knee?? If he can barely walk, why isn't he rushing in for a diagnosis??


Don't beat yourself up. Everyone makes mistakes. I would just remove myself from the situation and let him come to terms with it on his own.
