hello,
you have to to tests like hbe ag, hbv dna,liver function test (specially alt)
if all these are positve then you need to continue antiviral therapy with regular monitoring of these indicators. if these came negative , then you need only follow up.so consult your doctor about it. take care.

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
