I have Herpes Type II. For a month now Ive had tingling & burning sensation & lip quivering on my upper lip but no cold sore has appeared. Ive taken valacyclovir 1 g for 14 days but has not relieved symptoms Am I having an outbreak? Or something else

Not herpes: First, let's be clear on terminology. It's HSV2, not II (roman numerals). HSV2 is the virus, not the disease. Genital herpes can be caused by either HSV1 or 2, but HSV2 infrequently infects the mouth -- i.e. most people with genital HSV2 never get cold sores from it. Herpes doesn't cause "tingling and burning" without visible sores, and non-improvement on valacyclovir confirms it's not herpes. ...Read more

Injury: During that contusion to the top of your foot, nerves were probably damaged. Healing of nerves goes on for months and,at times, years. In the meantime you may experience those types of sensations. If similar symptoms develop in the uninjured foot,then a peripheral neuropathy would be suspected. A neurologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. ...Read more

I've been feeling a tingley sensation in my back. Sometimes it's a cold tingle and sometimes it feels like it's tingling and burning?

There are local injections or medications some of which may be topical that can help. Acupuncture and PT may be a consideration ...Read more

RLS?: I don't know what it IS (you shouldn't expect that kind of answer on HealthTap), but it COULD be restless-leg syndrome, or what they're calling Willis-Ekbom disease these days. Check out www.rls.org to see if you have any of the other symptoms (there are 4 cardinal symptoms). If it is RLS, it's not curable, but it is treatable. The best specialist to see about it is a neurologist. ...Read more
