Suggest treatment for fatigue and blurred vision when suffering from herpes
I have been battling herpes (1&2) for over a year now. My symptoms include almost total fatigue, random spots (coldsore-esk, not lesions). When I go outside I feel it activated within my body and my mind feels clouded, as if I cannot think. I have also started to feel strain in my eyes, which is blurring my vision. My primary care believes it to be psychological since I am on acyclovir, but I know something is definitely not right. Who should I talk to? Is there a doctor who specialized in Std viral infections when they might be progressing towards keratitis or encephalitis? Would the eye doctor and/or neurologist handle this?
Please talk to an infectious diseases specialist first before concluding on your own that you are progressing towards keratitis or encephalitis. If the condition is really bad the ID specialist may consider intravenous acyclovir for 7-10 days.
