    So I recently tested positive for HSV-2(genital herpes). When my outbreak started a month ago, sore did my sore throat. Now I'm in anti-virals and my outbreak is gone but I still have a sore throat when I wake up every morning which is not normal for me not has it ever been. Is this normal with the herpes virus???? I've also been tested for I the STD's including HIV which all were negative.
