I don't think any of your issues are related to your herpes. I would err on the side of caution and stop the valtrex for a week though. some folks do have odd side effects from it and if any of this is due to valtrex, it will get markedly better in a week of no medication at all.
the b12 you were taking had absolutely no effect at all on your herpes.
are you following up with your doctor on all of this?
Part of article.... Let me go further. Dear God, If you find it in your heart to find a cure or vaccine that essentially cures this dreadful disease. I believe we live in a world where anything is possible!
I am hoping the prescription did not fatally damage by red blood cells. These CD8+cells.
May 8, 2013 Article, partial.
CD8αα+ T-cells were previously known to exist in the gut mucosa, but most of the research on CD8+ T-cells focused on studying them in blood circulation. Corey and his team were the first to find the phenotype of CD8αα+ T-cells to persist in the skin. He said that a potential herpes vaccine would focus on increasing these cells in the immune system.
“It gives us a marker by which one can test vaccines,” Corey said. “A vaccine that will increase the number or function of these cells would be one you would want to develop. I don’t think there would be any side effects.”
The vaccine could potentially stop individuals from experiencing outbreaks – the times when a person is most contagious. Generally, a person can only contract HSV-2 infections during sexual intercourse with an infected individual; however, transmission can still occur when the infected individual does not have a visible sore.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 776,000 people in the United States are infected with herpes each year, and one out of six people between the ages of 14 and 49 have genital HSV-2 infection. While this vaccine would not cure those of HSV-2, it could ultimately help stop the spread of this very prevalent STI.
“We think it’s possible to contain,” Corey said. “It’s a ‘clinical cure.’”
The research is published in the May 8 advance online edition of Nature.

I did not have a culture done but was on my shaft of my penis initially. It is 500 MG Valacyclovir HCL. My b12 was 238. I had burning hands and arms on June6. Started taking medication on June 13 and stopped yesterday as I did not feel right taking it. I have been doctor 4 times total since being infected. My 8.5 week Elisa was negative.
I think you just answered my question. The central nervous system is that part of the nervous system that consists of the brain and spinal cord.
The central nervous system (CNS) is one of the two major divisions of the nervous system. The other is the peripheral nervous system (PNS) which is outside the brain and spinal cord.
Do you think I have permanent damage?
The peripheral nervous system (PNS) connects the central nervous system (CNS) to sensory organs (such as the eye and ear), other organs of the body, muscles, blood vessels and glands. The peripheral nerves include the 12 cranial nerves, the spinal nerves and roots, and what are called the autonomic nerves that are concerned specifically with the regulation of the heart muscle, the muscles in blood vessel walls, and glands
A low b12 isn't related at all to hsv2.
acyclovir isn't available in a 500mg dose. please recheck your medication and the dose so I can better help you with any medication questions.
lysine isn't effective for genital herpes. it's one of the biggest herpes myths out there.
how were you originally diagnosed? did you have a lesion culture and typing done?
are you following up on all these symptoms since they've been going on for almost a week now?
