Burning sore throat started around 08/01/2019 and I thought maybe reflux although atypical for me but started protonix and no relief. Mouth began to burn and tingle and throat continued. Went to ENT and they said maybe thrush, Nystatin mouthwash started, worse 3-days later, 2nd ENT says maybe thrush just based on burning but nothing visually, switches me to a week of diflucan, symptoms persist. Within 2 weeks, I begin to have sores that pop up all over the inside of my mouth, roof of mouth, under tongue, gums and google it and it pulls up herpetic gingivostomatitis. Go back to PCP and dentist and they both say not herpes but not sure what it is. Then vaginal burning and anal burning start, like fire and some itching but never any sores. OB/GYN does internal exam and sees nothing suspicious. Triple test of yeast, trich and sething se cultured and all negative. I have diarrhea throughout this as well and no appetite, whether nerves or part of illness, unsure. Lost 10-lbs and symptoms persist. I finally go back to PCP after things persist and he says maybe burning mouth syndrome but sores aren’t associated with burning mouth syndrome. I beg for blood test. This blood test was 5-weeks into burning/symptoms. Igm and igg come back negative. My boyfriend’s is done at same time and igm comes back at 1.43 and doc says it has to be false since he is asymptomatic and always has been, send him to re-test, 2nd igm is 1.8 and he still tells him false positive and recommends no further action for either of us. I eventually see another provider who does a viral swab of a healing sore which was negative and bacterial culture of mouth which was negative. At 7.5-weeks, while on acyclovir, PCR swab is done and is negative and Igg repeated and is negative. Just did a 12-week Igg/blood draw and it was negative. Symptoms continue....slow seroconversion? One of the people that never shows on Igg blood test? One of the 30% of HSV-1 that Igg test misses? Do I do the Western Blot test?
