"Actual research/proof on HSV-2/PHN-connection?"
 
   I find it strange that people posting in this category seem to completely ignore the fact that the connection between HSV-2 and post-herpetic neuralgia/polyneuropathy is not yet recognized by the medical community, and that there is this ridiculous belief here that modern medicine might just have "missed this" somehow. Even stranger is the fact that many people here claim with certainty to have HSV-2 and constant peripheral neuralgia as a symptom of that, without testing positive for HSV-2 even after several years of repeated type specific blood tests. C'mon people. If you're not infectious disease doctors yourselves, and if you can't point out an actual comprehensive study proving this connection - or a name a group of doctors that collectively agree that there is such a connection - maybe it's time you stopped obsessing about this. Have you checked if you are positive for the varicella zoster virus? If you find out that you are positive for VZV, just accept that your post-herpetic neuralgia and/or polyneuropathy is a symptom of "zoster sin herpete" (shingles without a rash). There is, of course, also genital shingles - which people seem to forget. If you have had strange symtoms "down there" without testing positive for HSV-2 after six months since "exposure", genital shingles could very well have been the reason for the symptoms. Use your imagination for other purposes than speculating wildly on complex neurological issues. Just my two cents.

Hello,
I think you should consult a good and qualified Doc for the best results, please don't take chance just go ahead to Doc and tell him the fact.

   I have had several top Neurologists tell me it was Herpes related...no doubt in their mind.

Could you please name those top neurologists? I am in dire need of talking to a neurologist that is not oblivious to the connection between herpes simplex and long term postherpetic neuralgia. Thanks.

   I have been to an infectious disease specialist who diagnosed my symptoms as PHN due to HSV-2 infection. I was prescribed Neurontin which did in fact help.

   Wow I have had two herniated disks with major neuropathy and pain for a couple of months now and my outbreaks have been chronic. It has really been insane. I was taking neurontin which I believe did increase the outbreaks as well. It never occurred to me the two were connected until I researched a little about the simplex. It resides on the nerve ganglia so it is completely logical that the pain is connected to the outbreaks. Indeed my pain level increases with an outbreak. I am working on fortifying my immune system. I don't know what else to do. I wish there was more available to us in terms of relief. Thanks for your post.
