potsgirl Posted May 3, 2009 Report Share Posted May 3, 2009 Hello All~I struggled for a while before I could finally scrape up the courage to put this out to Forum members. I was diagnosed last week with herpes (genital), which was a total surprise to me. I have always been monogamous, never 'slept around', and have been in a relationship that has had no infidelity for the past five years. I know you can have this disease and not know it, so passing it to someone can be very easy - most people never know they even have it.My problem is that I've had the virus for at least 6 weeks, and can't seem to get rid of it. I have severe symptoms, and have just started on a course of anti-viral medication. Does anyone else have this problem? I feel like I'm never going to get rid of this, and it drags me down considerably. It feels like the flu, with stomach pain and cramping, nausea, etc. Please, if anyone know anything about having these two diseases, let me know what I could expect and how to manage it better.Thanks!potsgirl Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
