"Is this neuralgia, and if so, what can I do about it?"|
Hello, all. So, I've had so many problems with my bits for the longest time, but luckily, my GHSV2 hasn't caused any problems, or so I thought. I haven't had an outbreak since my first (in December of 09), and I'm on 500 mg of Valtrex a day, but I've noticed that I get this sharp, electric pain through the inside of my vagina to my labia on one side down through my bottom and the back of my upper thigh. It's often accompanied by a very tight feeling, like the muscle is sore, but stretching doesn't help or hurt. I've tried to determine if there are any triggers; I think standing for long periods might start it, but that's not always the case. It never lasts more than a day, and it hurts, but it doesn't interfere with my life. I definitely don't want it to get worse, so:|
1. Does this sound like a herpes-related issue, or could it be something else? I've only noticed it in the past few months, and I've had herpes for a while. As mentioned, I do have a problematic vagina, so I don't know if this is just part of that, or if it's all related to herpes, or if my body is just weird/hateful.
2. What can I do to treat it? Like I said, it doesn't really bother me that much, but I think I heard that nerve pain can happen more often or get worse if left untreated. I'm not at the point where I want to take very drastic measures (unless this is something where curtailing it early on is necessary), but I'm more than happy to up my Valtrex, take another antiviral, massage the area, etc.
