I had what I soon found out to be possibly my first herpes outbreak about 5 months ago . I had the most extreme pain passing urine and pains down my legs. After a few days a few ulcers appeared and I gave up with the doctors telling me I had a urine infection and went to a gum clinic . I was devastated thought my life was over but so pleased to get treatment and be in less pain . The ulcers cleared quickly and the urine pain after a few days but the pains in my buttocks legs and Pelvis went on for weeks ! Now just like to talk to people who have suffered and still suffer with the pain of herpes .
