Cud I have herpes

Hi, on a road trip a few of us were using the same bottle to pee into, one guy who is my brother has herpes, is it possible to catch hsv 2 this way?
2 weeks later I had an itchy penis for about 2 weeks without sores, 6 weeks later I got strange pains in the soles of my feet, which then went up through my feet and shins, 2 weeks after that had swollen neck glans (glands) sore throat and headaches, then a week after that I got a few itchy spots in my pubic region and penis itch again, tested negative for all stds after 5 weeks apart from hsv2.
Could I have herpes? Please help, u have a wife and child with another on the way!

this was not a risk for herpes transmission at all.

usually just itching is jock itch, not a std.

did you  have sex with someone who isn't your wife that you tested for std's?

Hi grace,
Thanks for your quick response,
I was on a stag weekend, but don't remember anything the last night, for weeks I didn't think for a minute I could of cheated on my gorgeous wife, never entered my mind, untill symptoms started to occurr.. I can be quite paranoid, now I don't know what's real or what's paranoia, I'm going out of my mind and don't know how to get through it!!
It's now been 3 months, I'm waiting to see my Doct, if it turns out I have herpes I will loose my wife, my 2 year old boy and my unborn daughter, we just bought a house which is perfect!! I have never cheated and would never intentionally cheat but am so scared that this is a bad twist of fate.
Do my symptoms sound like herpes?
Pain in soles of both feet, going up to my shins? Itchy spots on pubic region and itchy penis etc??
Thanks again for your help

have you ever been tested for herpes before this?

your itchy penis isn't due to herpes. have you treated for jock itch yet?

anxiety can cause all sorts of symptoms physically too. pain in the feet can be due to many things including plantar fascitis and many other things. No real reason to think you have herpes causing symptoms in both feet and legs like this. It's your anxiety worrying you needlessly!!!

Once again thanks for the quick response, considering I'm in Ireland!
I've never been tested for herpes before as far as I know, I do get coldsores so I know I have hsv1.
I hope to god your right about this all being anxiety, I just feel that there's too many coincidence in symptoms, I'm currently in work trying to hide and fight back tears, so scared that I'm on the countdown to loosing my family!
I have never had itchy spots on my pubic region before, I took 1 diflucan and am using canesten cream but its been 4 days without too much change! Although they are fading and not as itchy. Would I get them on penis if it were herpes?

YOU WERE NEVER AT RISK FOR A STD!!!  put that on a post it and stare at it all day long!!!

it can take a few weeks even until fungal infections clear up. they can be a real booger sometimes :(

What is the probability that I have had herpes longer than 5 years, before meeting my wife and it only showing now?
Are the pains in soles of feet and shins a symptom? I've also had sore testicles for a few days and clear discharge feeling. I accept that I haven't got anything from peeing in a bottle, but something still could of happened that I don't remember being so drunk, so I still could have a risk,,
I do really wish I could move on and enjoy my family!
Thanks again for all your help!!!

you wouldn't have pains in BOTH legs/feet with a herpes recurrence - only one side.

are you talking to a professional about your anxiety issues?

Hi grace,
Just a follow up on my situation..
Went to gum clinic again regarding itchy pubic spots, they said not to worry!
5 days later my penis gets inflammed, feels likes its burning throbbing and itchying, red rash on head of penis, goes away and came back again, for the last 5 days its been like this and the last 3 days I have had pain in both sides of my groin/glands... And soles of both feet?
Can't take much more of this, PLease help
