Betsy, I know I have random questions but you have been very helpful in past.
I know that part of the outbreak or pre outbreak symptoms can be muscle aches. I had told my PCP that having alot of muscle aches (even when no issues down there). She ran a Sed Rate lab test which was a little high and needed to be rechecked in month. Anyways d/t herpes effecting muscles can this cause an increase in sed rate? I don't want to pay to have a redraw even though still having it 5 months later (no never went back after month) if it is just because of herpes (which pcp don't know dx). Please advise


Also 2nd question: Is it possible to have itching/burning and no bumps and still be herpes outbreak. Im rather confused at moment if outbreak or yeast infection so don't know how to treat. Have used herpes cream with little relief, and few days of monistat with no relief either. I did start back VAltrex yesterday. This one is confusing me, any help would be appreciated

Thanks

You need to go and be properly evaluated for your bumps. Get tested for yeast and bacterial infections while you are there too.

I really don't think your herpes was the cause of your elevated sed rate. Definitely need to follow up on that with your doctor and/or a rheumatologist.
