Hey im a 19 yr old female who has recently contracted the HPV virus and am feeling depressed over the entire thing. I feel super stressed out about how i have ruined my life like this and most of my days i feel low and ashamed. I havent told ANYONE at all, not my parents or even my roomate who is my best friend, i hate being judged and so i carry this burden by myself. Im also going to mention that im a hypochondriac, which is difficult for me as well especially since it ties in with the HPV. Im also going to post other symptoms ive been having, but the doctor ive been seeing cant find anything wrong with my bloodwork or in any tests ive had, including pretty much all stds testing which came back as nothing wrong. I hate living in fear all the time now, no one understands what im going through with these two "diseases" ill call them. I just want relief from all of this. So in that symptoms ive been having are fatigue, a kind of dizzyness feeling and my eyes wont focus right away. Again, Ive had bloodwork done, im not sure if its just basic or not but also have had std screening, some stds ive also been tested for twice and it all comes back negative for anything wrong. Is it normal to be able to get an MRI or Catscan? Im very miserable with my health situation and because of the hypochondraism it makes it 10X worse, I always am afraid of dying now which is an indication to me that its getting worse. I was at the doctors almost once ever week and i felt like I was annoying her with my fears, i just want to feel normal again and cant shake this feeling that i am dying. Please if anyone has any suggestions about what to get tested and such, tell me it would be greatly appreciated!
Ok, first of all the HPV is not a cause for any of these symptoms. The fact your bloods etc have all come back negative means that it is either an emotional problem or it is something that has been missed. Keep going to your doctor until you have found a cause, but be reassured it is not the HPV causing this.
Sweetie, you need to calm down. Your feeling anxious which means your high anxiety, and your dizziness and whatever else is caused by your anxiety.I had a fear of dying years ago, my shrink said it was something that was an experience that was shock to my system....
Having hpv doesn't mean anything. I have it. You have to be careful of the pre cancer cells that my appear, but you get checked by having your pap, they clear up the pre cancer cells, and your watched after that. I did hear from the forums and my doctor this week that once your exposed, you are a carriar forever which sucks. I did go thru the shame, I don't sleep with a number of men, never did, and I was ashamed. Well the doctor simply said that this thing is very common, and almost everyone at some point in their life will contract this. I have also been told me to imagine the whole store having hpv, that's how common this is, so don't be upset or ashamed, it doesn't say anything against you. There are no symptoms of hpv except the only thing I had was an odor and the boyfriend and I thought it was a yeast infection.... There are no signs of hpv, I didn't know I had it till I got checked 2 years ago. Stop wasting your visits to the doctor, and go spend your money on a phycologist, or talk to a friend. Do stuff for relaxation, drink some camomile tea, take hot showers, watch comedies, read a book. I know how uneasy you must feel, so come in here when your feeling anxiety, call a friend, do something to distract yourself....... Hugs.
