I tested positive for hsv1 at 62.20 High it says, but I haven't had a coldsore since elementary school, is this an old or new infection?

I tested positive for hsv1 at 62.20 High it says, but I haven't had a coldsore since elementary school, is this an old or new infection?

Probably old: All that can be said from this test result is that you have been infected with HSV1 for at least several weeks. The number itself says nothing about how long, and it could be since childhood. If your cold sores all those years ago were typical oral herpes -- i.e. blister-like sores on the outside of the mouth, not canker sores inside -- you can safely assume it explains your positive test.

Evaluate ; re-focus: Consider getting a professional evaluation of your speech first. Most likely you are focused on a problem that no longer exists or is miniscule. Friends or a therapist can help you to broaden your focus and find other ways to measure self-worth. A family member went through something similar and she is fine. Peace and good health! Read more

Is there a good forum or website for med school students to ask questions if one is shy during clerkship?

Be more assertive: If you have questions...you need to ask. Not only is this important because your building a medical database that will help you break down medical problems presented to you in the future.

In medical school, how many students are there in a class? Can you ask questions during a class? And do you have a separate teacher to help you?

It varies a lot: Some of the basic science courses in medical school are taught to the entire class at the same time in a large auditorium. Others are in small groups of ten or so. In these classes there is a lot of give and take between the students and instructor. In my experience, questions were always encouraged and generally, the better the teacher, the more questions that are asked. Read more

Urgent problem: Get seen now. This isn't going to get better by "promoting your self-esteem" or "learning to relax." your life's ruined if this continues. Get with someone who can check you for a learning problem, adult attention-deficit disorder, or some illness (and there are dozens) that's keeping your brain from working (even a sleep disorder / parasomnia can ruin this).
