I would love to hear from people who have severe outbreaks and people who have a lot of nerve pain. I have basically had one big, excruciating outbreak since LAST JUNE! Since I don't get the blisters, just the endless agonizing prodrome the doctors are shaking their (dim) heads. Seems they can't understand the virus without the blisters. Hello?! Everyday you read in the news that herpes is being spread all over by people who don't know they are having an outbreak because no blisters! Well, anyway, my problem is severe and really taking a lot out of me and I can't find much about this although I know some people have s Post Herpetic Neuralgia from herpes as one might have from shingles. Help me out here, please.
