hey i already finished my first outbreak of herpes but im still obsessed with reading about it. i noticed that during the first outbreak you get flu-like symptoms a lot of the time. i was just wondering if anyone actually threw up? the very first day i was throwing up like no tomorrow and i had diarrhea all threw the night (which i first thought was food poisoning). this lasted about 2 or 3 days. then it just turned into flu symptoms. the outbreak went away then my throat started to get all scratchy and my throat glands were swollen. im on meds now for strep throat, the pain went away but i can still feel the swelling when i touch my throat. im being very paranoid here. did anyone else have crazy symptoms?
