Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Thank you for posting your query. First of all, I would like to reassure you that your symptoms are not suggestive of any severe central nervous system (CNS) involvement due to herpes simplex or any other viruses. These infections are called as encephalitis or meningitis, and you do not have symptoms of that. However, I agree that you have symptoms of a viral infection, which affects multiple systems in body, including central and peripheral nervous system. Symptoms such as headache, muscle pain, fatigue, tiredness, poor concentration, lethargy, etc are common after viral infections. I also agree that there are good treatments for herpes virus infections of the nervous system. The drug of choice is acyclovir. As of now, we can wait and watch. If your symptoms persist, then, further investigations would be needed. These would include MRI brain, electroencephalography (EEG) and lumbar puncture (CSF analysis). I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

I have mallorets meningitis, I have struggled with it apparently since I was about 2-3 years old due to varicella and a bad blood infection. About a month ago I had symptoms of meningitis again... Went to ER and was admitted to hospital for a week and a half for antiviral therapy via IV... The day before I was discharged the doctor in charge of my care ordered a picc line to continue IV therapy at home... After 2 additional weeks of antiviral ivs.. Picc line was removed. This was a week and a half ago.. Two days ago I awoke in the middle of the night running a low grade fever and right shoulder and right side of neck was swollen, I developed a cough and now everytime I cough it feels like someone it sticking a hot poker in my right lung and right frontal aspect of my neck, is it possible I ve developed an infection internally?

Hi I've recently been diagnosed with hsv-2 and I'm horrified at what my future will hold... I am a lesbian and my partner accidentally was the one who gave me the virus but she did not know she had it til recently as well. We both are trying to learn methods to reduce our outbreaks and looking at a more natural remedy that is less pricey but just as effective as antiviral medications. We are trying to learn everything we can on hsv-2 to better prepare ourselves. She currently is pregnant and is also looking for ways to prevent her unborn child from contracting this virus... Any help will be greatly appreciated in answering my questions.. Thank you
