I have genital type 2 and the pains i've experiences in the buttock and thigh area are as though the skin is extremely tender to touch. Even when clothing brushes against the skin it feels painful, but not a muscular type of pain, just the skin only. Kind of like when you have a bad case of the flu and your body feels very tender to touch all over.
I use to contend, to those few who would listen,
that herpes was a pain in the a$$. It was good
old nerve pain, the kind that causes your brain
to try to produce pain killers. I also use to contend
that HV's function was to find every nerve below
your waist and take it over.
When I've talked to others, some say I'm right,
some say, I've never had that, you don't know
what your talking about.
In my case, i'd rather the nerve pain than the actually ob. I know the nerve pain for me will only last a very short time, whereas some of the ob's i had before were always for a longer time, itched and stung.
