This is my first entry on this site. I would be very grateful if you would provide some advice or share your experience with me. I am very desperate at this point in time.
I had a sexual encounter in August 2011, three days after which the pain in my genitals started, and did not stop until today with only some days in between that were a bit better.
I got tests for all possible STD and they did not find anything. Three ELISA tests were negative for HSV2 (I have HSV1 on my lips since childhood).
My glans has been inflammated basically for the last 18 months. Some days a bit better, then it gots worse again. I have sometimes tiny red spots on it, or "paper cuts" or other strange things.
Blisters I had only once last time last summer, when I got huge blisters on my glans and foreskin that disappeared after some weeks. A PCR test did not show any HSV.
Worst of all is my nerve pain. My glans became hypersensitive. Often burning pain in my testicles, anus and in my right thigh down to the knee. I am also in psychologial treatment (he thinks this is all psychosomatic, but it is for sure not) and I am taking anti-depressants and nerve pain killers (Cymbalta, etc), but nothing, including Valtrex, really helps. I am living in Austria and will now send blood to Portland to have done a Westernblot.
I have the feeling that the herpes viruses are doing what they want down there and this every day. Even light pressure on my testicles start the attack and pain. I do so seldom have no pain that I cannot relax anymore. No vacation, no weekend without pain.
Does anybody have similar experience? I hope I receive some support so my hope is not fading ...
many thanks and kind greetings from Vienna, Austria.
