I NEED advice. Please read, I'll keep it short.
Couple years back, I had an infection that appeared to be Herpes. Went and got a swab, came back negative. 11 months later, I went in for an IGG blood test for HSV-1, and HSV-2, again, results came back negative.
Fast forward about 2 years, I have another breakout, this time it's HUGE! Went to my Doctor, he said it looked like Shingles. He took a blood draw, again, for type 1 AND 2 Herpes. This time, we ran for both IGM, and IGG antibodies. Test comes back today, and I passed the IGG with flying colors, but got a positive on my IGM.
I've been monogamous with my girl for 3 years, and so has she. My question is this... Can an IGM show a positive from Shingles? Is that what happened to me? Or is it possible, that I was infected some years back, and still haven't produced IGG antibodies? Cause I'm certain I didn't just catch it NOW... Unless it was from a toilet seat.
