Are there medical conditions/diseases that can cause a false positive test result?
I have an autoimmune condition and small fiber neuropathy. I have never had a positive viral culture but have had a positive hsv-2 blood test.
I also have various autoimmune disorders, and I reached this site looking for illnesses that could cause a false positive herpes blood result. I know I have never had a break out, sores I have had have been cultured and come back negative for herpes. I now know that I have discoid Lupus amongst other things, so could this be an early detection that no one knows about yet?
I've also had a couple of false positive lyme tests, and I have had at least 10 of them since all this started a couple of years ago.
I wish there were more answers out there for people like us.
What can cause a false positive herpes and a false positive lyme?
does any one have an idea?
usually once your postive your positive. I would retest again in a few months. If it turns up postive again then im sorry hun but your positive.
