I had severe tingling and pains in my legs for about three months after contracting genital HSV1. As well as shooting pains, it felt as if the nerves were "jumping". It was very unpleasant but it has died down considerably now (I got genital HSV1 in August 2003).
I have sever leg pain with the type of herpies that I have it is the herpies zoyster. The breakouts are caused by stress or so my doc tells me. I am never stressed when I break out. The pain in my leg last for about three days and it gets to the point that It will go num at times. But I do use a cream. And I live with a bottle of motrin. That seems to work best for me.
I have herpes type 2. When my initial ob occurred i didn't feel any pain/tenderness anywhere on my body, only the stinging and itching of the actual ob. When i got the second ob, that was when i suffered with the pains. It felt like a skin tenderness and began at my hip and over a period of a few days worked its way down the right hand side of my body and only affected the right leg. Once the pain reached down near my foot, then it disappeared.
Only one of my legs hurt before my first ob and it was so bad I went to the doctors cause I though maybe I had done something to it while running. It was mostly in my lower calf into my ankle area, It hurt very much, felt very tender and stiff.
i have genital & oral HSV1 and my whole face is on fire. Shaft was same way when it was going through his poor traumatic experience. now, i just get little tingles on my thighs and butt with a little pimple sometimes showing up shortly after.
