If you're living with herpes or other STDs, this may help. HerpesGroups. com is a safe and warm-hearted community for singles with STDs to connect with others in the same situation.
You can find support groups to talk about symptoms, treatments, meet new friends and even find love with someone that understands what you go through.

welcome to HCM.
read your prob, after herpes encephalitis cured , all brain functions become normal.
meanwhile if any permanent damage of brain occur, such type of prob persist.
you should get contrast MRI brain, for rule out which part of brain involved yet.
prognosis depends upon that. consult your treating doc.
