Hi,, i went in to get tested today and asked for hsv1 and 2 igg test,, and the doctor recommended i do the igm (which i know is meaningless) but i also heard him say titers,, whatdoes that mean,, can any one educate me,, is this a valid test
I broke out in shingles when I was 24 and tested for HIV/AIDS but the test was negative and have been tested a few times since then and still negative. I also shake constantly. I don't know if this information will be useful but I have had carpel tunnel and arthritis and TMJ so my bones and joints are in pretty bad shape too. I'm scared because if I feel this bad going on thirty, I don't want to know what fourty will feel like!
I got myself tested for HIV and it was negative...Besides this, my ESR was also fine...I also didnt experience any symptoms of any Chamilidya, Gonnorhea or Syphilis...I ve heard that Gonnorhea always shows symptoms and in Chamilidya it gets shown in 50% though I am not sure about Syphilis...I also dont know which one of these have an effect on ESR....Do I need testing or I am not gonna die with what I told u??please give me some comments as I am confused...
Presumably you mean an IgM test for herpes. Such tests are inherently unreliable and should not be done; the IgG tests are the proper ones for herpes diagnosis. But your result is negative. Flu symptoms without genital sores are unlikely to be caused by herpes.
I'm not sure why you're asking me. What did your own provider say about all this?
For more information, use the search link to look for 'genital herpes', 'herpes diagnosis', 'HerpeSelect test', and 'IgM'.
whatdoes this mean?
0.5 per 10,000 exposures...
this is the chance of infecting male during poz female suck him!!!
0.5 mean half man :) or his legs only??
it is really drive me mad..gray talks..!!
any inputs will b appreciated..
