Im new to the forum. I was told I have some kind of herpes. I been having extreme pain on one side of my face. I started to take medicine for 10 days and pain, burning would go away. this is been happening for at least 3 to 4 years now. At one point they thought it was some type of TMJ but have been seeing a chiropacter, he thinks it's the herpes virus. Recently the pain is not going away and the doctor placed me on veltrax everyday. When i'm on medicine, the pain is almost at 5-10 percent from 100 W/O medicine. I do not have visible sores on mouth area but inside my inner thighs, I do see reddish marks that are very itchy, but the medicine makes it less itchy and goes away. My question: is anybody out there having similiar reactions.. sometimes I don't think it's herpes but I'm really confused. It's not the end of world and I feel good on medicine.
