Hi, None of what you mention suggest herpes and testing without symptoms is only advise if you have a long term partner. Test for the below for her protection as you were exposed to these.
1. Herpes---3 months
2. syphilis---6 weeks
Yes stress could be causing these.
I woke up this morning and still after 4 weeks still having pretty constant back pain... The pain gets worse throughout the day. Every so often Ill get a sharp pain in my groin or around knee or my inner thigh that will last for a few seconds or be dull for a few minutes. My testicles also have a general achyness. Also, under the tip of my penis there is a slight itch every so often and noticed some dry flaky skin on the tip of my penis but no redness or lesions. I have been using gold bond on testicles and anti fungal on groin crease. Could this of caused it? Still consumed with severe anxiety and losing sleep over this.
Really wish i could help with your anxiety and none of what you mention suggests herpes.
Thanks Life360 really appreciate your support! After one stupid night and being with someone for almost 7 years really helped me put things into perspective and know that the girl I'm with is the one. Just don;t want anything to mess that up.
Does Leg pain associated with Herpes usually affect the front of both legs? I have been having pains in the front and inside of my thighs (sometimes sharp) and above the knees a little sometimes feel like Shin splints throughout the day. I sit at a desk for at least 9 hours a day. Haven't had all these issues until after the incident. Still probably nerves but just curious? Thanks Again.
I have had HSV1 since I was little so I dont know how that affects the HSV2 virus if I have contracted it.

So I am still having back pain right above the pants line pretty constant on left side and sometimes on right and sharp pains in front and back of both thighs every so often sharp or throbbing pains pop up in different spot of both legs. Sometimes I get groin pain and testicles are tender. It comes and goes throughout the day. You are saying this doesn't sound like an initial outbreak of herpes even though I have oral HSV1? Would those antibodies keep me from having sores develop? How long does leg pain typically occur as the only symptom? Thanks for taking time out to answer my questions. It's been 6 weeks could I do an igg test now and it be pretty accurate?
Yeah man it wasn't the smartest Idea but I just was scared haha. Still won't test for another few weeks so I don't worry myself with a false positive or false negative. I can't eat, sleep, or function and am an anxious wreck waiting. I am sure it is all anxiety but my mind tells me otherwise. This experience did help me though put my life into perspective and to slow things down. I'll keep you updated. Its good to know I am not the only one out there.
Also these are more noticeable when I'm sitting or laying down.
I know you answered questions similar to this any input on my questions from today? Thanks in advance
It's all stress related. Believe me I know. I'm a freaken expert on what you describe. Also I want to assure you whate life360 says is dead nuts accurate. He has helped me when I had my scare. I stepped out on my wife one time in 16 years of marriage. It's been 6 months and I had all your symptoms and they are stress induced.your body does all kinds of things when your under that kind of stress. You can't sleep eat or function. I tested neg for everything just like you will. It gets a little easier over time.
My advice is don't ever do it again and spend your time being a better man to her.
Good luck and you are going to be fine.
With my continued stress and anxiety I have had 2 cold sores on my lips in the last month. Just wondering if you have Oral HSV1 and genital HSV2 would you expect to see outbreaks concurrently? Also, I am still having leg tingling mostly in thighs and calves and also now on scrotum. Also still getting a few more stretch marks in groin and on inner thighs sometimes have red circles in them but clear up within a few days with no blisters or sores. I used lotrimin constantly for about 3 weeks and read that could possibly cause stretch marks on top of increased cortisol levels from anxiety?
Hi Life360. On Wednesday night I noticed a small white bump (~2mm) on the underside of my scrotum (I have fordyce spots) and me being full of anxiety tried to pop it several times with my pus but just a little clear liquid coming out. Within 15 mins was swollen and looked like i broke the skin. I put Neosporin on it and woke up the next morning to a scab. If that was in fact an outbreak would it of went from small bump to swollen to scab within that small time period? Of course I messed with the scab yesterday and put more neosporin on it last night and another scab was there this morning. There are no other bumps other than fordyce spots with hair in them anywhere else. I am 11 weeks from possible exposure and still have tingling and some pains in legs and tingling every once in a while on scrotum.
Herpes are not white and the scrotum did not make contact. You really need to put this behind you.
It did not have a white head. I mean the outside was a little red and definitely is now red and scabbed so cannot tell. If it was early stages of forming and I messed with it would a blister or open sore appear still and scab that fast?
