Hello. Sorry for the long post but I'm worried that I may have genital herpes. Here's the story:
Had unprotected sex (brief oral but a lot of finger use and then penetrative followed by oral being performed on me) with a girl on a fri (1/25). Sat and Sun come and go and everything is fine. However monday night comes around and as I'm just sitting in my class I suddenly feel like I'm coming down with something, but I've never felt this way before. From one minute to the next I broke into a cold sweat. I immediately start panicking, fearing the worse, that I got some kind of STD from this girl (after all it had only been 3 days since the encounter so I thought it was too much of a coincidence).
So I go home and have a lot of trouble going to sleep that night, feeling sick and a weird abdominal pressure which I quickly attributed to my swollen rectum (felt like it was almost puckered shut). Additionally, when under the covers I felt as if my feet were cold and the room temperature was not the cause of it.
The next day (1/29) I went to work but still feeling like something was off (ears hissing at times, trouble concentrating) I went to my nearest private lab and got full STD testing done. My "hope" was that it was some form of chlamydia. The next day still in a panic, I went to a nearby urgent care center and based on my fear of having cotracted chlamydia and since the test results were not yet available, the doctor treated me for gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis with ceftriaxone (injected), azythromycin (1gm orally on the same day), and metronidazole (2gm orally the next day) respectively. For my "conjunctivitis" he also prescribed me tobramycin 0.3% solution to be used once every 4 hrs for a week.
So for the next few days, I was living in fear thinking the worse, and when the results came back on friday (2/1) everything was negative or non-reactive except for HSV-1. Below my HSV results:
HSV 1 IGG TYPE SPECIFIC AB 2.73 H
HSV 2 IGG TYPE SPECIFIC AB 0.11
I had taken another test exactly a year ago (1/2012)and back then my HSV results were as follows:
HSV 1 IGG TYPE SPECIFIC AB 0.04
HSV 2 IGG TYPE SPECIFIC AB 0.08
Sadly, after receiving the results, I still feel many symptoms such as crawling all over my body but predominantly around my waistline, my ankles, face (esp my nostrils, but they're not as itchy anymore), my ear canal, arms, upper and lower back and at times my hips. At no point has the crawling been an uncontrollable itch, but my skin just feels like theres tiny little bacteria crawling underneath it. The sensations are not constant and they come and go, but they are definitely there. The only thing that makes me think this might not be early signs of HSV-2 are that i haven't had any itching in my penis or testicles and the tingling/itching has been minimal in my buttocks but strong around my rectum. I also started having muscle spasms in my legs, mainly when sitting or lying in bed but definitely bothersome and it felt like electrical currents travelling through all the places I touched while having sex fluids on my hand. I also noticed that my face and scalp are secreting more oil than normal. A fee days later I also felt like my neck was stiffer than normal but this went away after a day and a half more or less.
It isn't until yesterday (2/7) that I felt more tingling than normal on my face and fingers, and noticed two tiny (pin-head sized) blisters show up on two fingers on one of my hands, both look about the same without any redness and both are in the hairy areas of my finger (near the second knucle on one finger amd mear the third knuckle on the other finger. I touched and poked both of them to see if they'd burst, but they don't seem like the kind of blisters that would burst on their own, at least as they currently show. Then, later last night I felt a tingle on my glans and as soon as I looked at it I noticed a small redish dot (1/4 the size of a dime) with a tiny blister identical to the ones on my hand, so I quickly took antibacterial soap and water and softly washed over my entire glans. A few minutes later I went back to look and there wa no longer a red dot or a blister and I saw absolutely no signs of a rash or anything else of the sort that is suppose to develop after a herpes blister pops.
So my question basically is: did I contract HSV-1 genitally an orally and am feeling prodrome symptoms because of that, or is it just the very early stages of HSV-2 an only a matter of time before real HSV-2 sores start showing up all over my penis and the rest of my body???
Any insight is appreciated. I'm also considering other possible conditions besides herpes, (lyme disease, ulcerative colitis, morgellons disease) but seeing as these symptoms all started after unprotected sex my mind keeps telling me its herpes. The girl is getting tested today btw, so I won't have her results until tues or wed.
Please help put my mind at ease! I've already prepared myself psychologically, but I'm goong crazy not knowing for sure. :(
