    Herpes with migraines
    lemiserable posted:
    Does anyone out there find that prior to outbreak you have terrible migraines that move from head to back of neck? They last about three days and then the outbreak, usually a fever blister on the face..... I sure would like to know if this happens to anyone else and what I could do for the miserable headaches. They immobilize me and I don't feel like doing anything. I guess I have been experiencing this for about ten years and I would love some advise. Who in the world do you ask? It is so embarassing because my doctor and I go to same church and sing in choir together and I just do not want to discuss with her and she does treat me for the migraines. I believe the two are related somehow. Does anyone have any advise for me?

    this is your prodrome and though it's more severe than most folks get, it's not too unusual.

    have you considered daily suppressive therapy so you can avoid recurrences?
    Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
