Now I am starting from scratch trying to figure out where the heck is the root cause of the pain
in my sacroiliac joints, buttocks, and
down the outsides (and sometimes front and back) of my legs...My question is this: could herpes simplex cause nerve pain the same way shingles does? If not, do you have any ideas about this specific kind of pain? I used to have a herniated disk, but therapy seemed to heal it, and I've had cortosone shots in my sacroiliac joints that made it MUCH MUCH worse..
