After a sexual worker did unprotected oral sex on me (Penetration was done with condom and did not break) I have been having slight headaches (I never had them before) that come on go during the day, sometimes I don’t have then for a week and then they come back, sometimes I just feel a pressure over the temples and sometimes it’s a pain on the back of the head, top of the head or forehead and face, I have also had pain in my hands, fingers and arms. Never had fever, never had swollen lymph nodes or rashes, tested 5 times over 10 months for HIV, last test was done at the 10th month and they all came back negative (4th Generation HIV testes in two different labs).
I have also been tested for Herpes 1, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, I wonder if I need to test for Herpes 2 separately but the only thing doctors have found so far, has to do with the liquid that comes out of my urethra:
* Diplococcus gram negative extracellular.
* Coccobacillus gram negatives.
* Coccos gram positives.
Doctor said it could be indicative of gonorrhea, but I never had urethral discharge, nonetheless the order me with doxycycline 100mg, for 20 days, which didn’t seem to have helped at all.
Another thing I remember is that a month after the unprotected contact, I had a stiff neck and a sore throat that would not go away, lasted about a month, then never came back, only the headaches remain.
I was wondering if anyone out there has had any similar symptoms and if they have discovered what it was, my only symptoms right now, after 13 months, are the slight but annoying headaches almost every day and pain in my hands.
Any info would help me out a lot.

Welcome to e health forum.

Headache is a very common and non specific symptom which can be attributed to conditions like psychological stress, viral or bacterial infections of the upper respiratory tract, migraines, functional disorders, vascular disorders and finally neurological infections or conditions which increase the intracranial pressure.

In case of major neurological conditions, headache is usually associated with nausea, vomiting, changes in consciousness, reduced ability to concentrate at work, blurred vision, seizures, etc. In presence of such symptoms additional investigations including a EEG can be suggested.

In the absence of such symptoms neurological issues (present or past) can be ruled out. and further evaluation would depend on the presence of other signs and symptoms in the patient.

Muscle contraction (tension) headaches appear to involve the tightening or tensing of facial and neck muscles. Such conditions can be treated with stress reduction, muscle relaxants and painkillers.

In your case, if required investigations including the MRI, CT, Spinal tap can be done. If they are normal it would be definitive that there is no major organic condition, that you are having.

Most likely, in such cases, the pain could be due to functional causes, which may respond to treatment with antidepressants and prescription pain medications (including opiods).

You may follow up and continue appropriate treatment with your doctors, and hopefully the medications might help to reduce your symptoms.

I hope this helps.
