Long story short... Maybe a year and a half or so ago, I had symptoms of genital Herpes. Originally, I went to Planned Parenthood for a visual diagnosis. The Doctor said what I didn't want to hear, she followed that with a culture swab to confirm, but by this point, the lesions appeared to be healing. Culture swab came back as a negative. So I decided to go to my Doctor for a blood test, and from what I can recall, this was probably about 4 months later. He did an IGG test for both type 1, as well as type 2. I got a negative on both those as well.
So now here I am today. Rewind about 4 days ago... I started feeling a weird, rashy, tingly sensation on my leg. Yesterday, I take off my pants for whatever reason, and BOOM, rashes and lesions on my left thigh, as well as the left side of my groin area. And today, it appeared to spread a little more, as well as a couple on the small of my back (right in the middle). I'm sore, uncomfortable, can't sleep all that well, head is foggy etc (light flu symptoms). And obviously, I'm terrified. I'm in my thirties, and still remain in single digits, as far as sexual partners go. But I know that really means nothing... I'm scared, honestly. Could it potentially be shingles, maybe that's what it was last time? Or is it possible that I got a false negative, two times in a row!?
Any advice, and or comfort of any kind is sincerely appreciated. Thank you.
