I am waiting for a "specific" blood test for genital herpes, and am taking acyclovir 800mg every four hours. My testicals seem to be little sore. Is this because I am stressing? Or is it a symptom or side affect? I have not read about this particular situation

Initial herpes outbreaks were very painful for me even in the testicles. Often this pain preceded the appearance of the blisters. I contracted herpes in the 1980's before treatment options. Outbreak severity diminished over the years even before treatment was available. After 1-2 years, I never experienced testicular pain again. Your body may be adjusting to this new virus. Consider yourself lucky that good treatment options exist today. Good luck!
