Sick with recurrent outbreak?
I have had Genital Herpes for about 2 years now, my first outbreak was terrible, i had a high fever, swollen glands, muscle pain, and of course very painful sores down there. I was miserable..went to the dr and got valtrex, and in about 2 weeks was feeling better.
After that, I only had a couple of outbreaks , none were severe..painful down there but I did not feel sick, with a fever or anything like that and all would clear up in a weeks time.
Last friday I came down with an outbreak, my first in about a year...and it was awful, I had a high fever, throwing up, terrible headache with shaking chill attacks....It was kind of like the first outbreak...I am JUST now starting to feel better, and the outbreak has cleared up. Has anyone else gotten the flu like symptoms with a recurrent outbreak?? I am so afraid this is going to keep happening. I have really never felt so sick in my life. I have two small children to take care of ( my husband has been a saint! ) but I need to be able to care for them. Ive been miserable this whole week and very worried as to why it has been like this, they said after the first outbreak i wouldnt feel so sick again with other outbreaks.
thanks for any replies!
