HSV2 and other health conditions (esp thyroid)

Recommended Posts

Some background info: I have had hsv2 for 6 years. Outbreaks happen maybe anywhere from 3-6 times a year and I don’t take acyclovir suppressively now but I had at one time. Now I take it only when an outbreak occurs. Was diagnosed with Graves’ disease (hyperactive thyroid) 6 months ago. I’ve had a nagging suspicion hsv2 has something to do with it as herpes of different types can bring it on. Although the internet is not specific about hsv2, I wonder if it was triggered by it. No one else in my family has a thyroid disease. 


So my question is sort of a poll. Anyone else have a thyroid condition post hsv diagnosis? Or even other conditions? Curious to know your story.

Hi, I was diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism and pcos aproximately 5 years ago and i was diagnosed with h (don't know which one) like 6 months ago. I told my gynob if they influence on the ob's I have (milder than the first one but kinda frequent) and she said yes, because of the hypothyroidism suppresses the immune system and the pcos affects my hormones 🙄 big package huh... anyways, have you tried boisting up your immune system?

I was diagnosed with both type 1 & 2 a few months ago, but mine was not recently acquired. Around the same time I discovered I have multinodular goiters on my thyroid. My doctor didn't mention a connection. 

I am in the common age range of getting them, plus several relatives have thyroid issues.
