[Question #7704] Initial herpes outbreak

 
1 months ago
Swab test confirmed genital herpes 3/5/21. Hsv 1&2 DNA tests 1/22/21 show no antibodies.  And amune compromised with CIDP post GBS. 

 I have pain deep in my vagina and in my uterus. When I move to sit down, it is very painful.. I'm also exhausted and have aches in my joints - neck, back knees.

Are these symptoms initial herpes outbreak related? Do I need medical attention for any of these symptoms?

Any DNA test is NOT looking for antibody, it is looking for virus.  And almost no one would have virus in their blood.  The proper test would have been an IgG antibody test, not a blood DNA test.  That was an inappropriate order.
I seriously doubt that the pain you are experiencing has anything to do with your herpes diagnosis nor would the aches in your joints. 
But yet, I think you do need medical attention for these problems, definitely.
