Appreciate it. I’d like to hear more about your success story from symptoms to treatment if you’ve got the time.
For me there was a definitive triggering event. After kissing a girl that was a friend of mine.
I went to planned parenthood and they did serology for hsv1 and hsv2, both turned up negative. But I kept having blood blisters pop up inside mouth. They wouldn't do anything about it.
I made a couple of visits to different doctors (general practitioners) and both refused to even give me Valacyclovir (Valtrex) which is very safe.
I actually think I read up on online pharmacies here. @Hip
has many valuable write ups on here.
Also, don't get discouraged because some people are sick for years. The unfortunate thing is many that do get better or manage it get on with their lives and disappear. So you get an overwhelmingly gloomy portrayal of your chances.
The prognosis is pretty good if you had a triggering event, like me, usually you'll slowly get better but antivirals can really speed up the recovery process.
That account has long been abandoned but that's a good example of someone who was significantly helped by just Valtrex. His doctor (his childhood doctor) gave him that only after he gave him lots of papers on it.
Like him (if you read his posts) I came to view doctors as inconvenient gatekeepers.
There's another member on here that found me on a youtube comment and ordered Valacyclovir on alldaychemist. He's had some success and he had been sick for a long time. Point being you should have some hope.
Nowadays my problems are more related to lesions on my tongue and I still get the blister inside my lip, but now its a little red dot instead of a bulging bubble. Whether or not it's one of the alphaherpes viruses I don't know I just know Valacyclovir does significantly mitigate the pain.
Hope you make a decision to try something and improve.
