I have had pain issues all my life as I have fairly sever scoliosis, but I have always felt that there was something else. I have alot of nerve and muscular pain; lately I have had bouts of pain, one time all on my left side,pain in my left leg coming out of my left foot and at the same time in my left arm and down coming out my left fingers. I know this is not associated with my back, but today and yesterday I had another sever bout that seemed like severe nerve pain from my left hip to my left groin, very intense the skin was on fire and also in my left lower leg at times shifting to my posterior hip, left elbow?, all over the pain and SO intense I thought this must be what shingles is like. I have been to rheumatologists and all kinds of specialists over the years. BUT... here's my question, I have herpes simplex 2 , for 30 years, and I wonder over the years if it might seat itself in the nerves all over the body and come back occasionally. I did have a chancer sore in my mouth a couple weeks ago with the last bout before today. Anybody ever heard of this type of systemic pain from herpes? I know that herpes zoster causes shingles, and that travels along the nerve roots in a similar fashion. Don't know where to turn, and I'm a RN!
