HERPETIC Neuralgia

Postby Karner » Thu Oct 16, 2014 4:09 pm

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

For 3 years now I suffer from terrible pain in the genital nerve area due to a herpes Type 1 infection.

Does anybody have any experience with this?
During the week when sitting whole day the pain gets very bad.

I would be so thankful for any advice.

kind regards, Siegfried

Siegfried, what medications have you tried so far? What about antivirals? What about pain meds for neuropathic pain such as lyrica?

PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.

Dear Violet,

Thanks so much for your interest.

I tried a lot alraedy. Antivirals are not helping the pain. I also tried Cymbalta and other anti-depressants, and also some pain medication with litte effect.

It took me 3 years to find out that my main issue is sitting, as it seems that the pressure on the nerves triggers the Herpes virus. This sounds crazy, but I have a red glans basically all the time. Even in the mornings, and I have no clue why.

One positive thing - I bought a TEMPUR seat cushion a week ago - and I feel so much better. Did you ever try TEMPUR products? It is so much different and better than all I tried before.
Yesterday I felt like in heaven with very little pain (after 3 most terrible years).

All the best, Siegfried

Seigfried, exactly what tempur cushion did you buy that gives you much relief.? I looked, the prices and styles vary so much. Thanks. I hope your problem will go away. You have come to the right place to find help. We have wonderful moderators.
Surgery Jan.05 2011 TG with Dr Antalok. Dr.Chambi May of 2012 showed injury from a fall on back, 11 years ago. My piriformis muscle caused a large amount of fibrosis .My sciatic nerve was growing through the piriformis muscle which caused a bifid p.muscle. . Dr Chambi decompressed the sciatic,pudendal,pfcn ,and peroneal nerves. I hope to have a nuerostimulator put in to help with the sciatic pain that never goes away. Most days are better with the pudendal if I do not sit at all.
