herpes???

Hi my brother was complaining of muscle spasms/ tingling in his left leg, and the tingling feeling worsens when he sits  down. He said there is no pain when he urinates, but there is a burn with his urethra. He had unprotected sex with a female almost a month ago and was scared he may have contracted herpes. Can someone offer some insight?

he needs to be seen and get a proper exam done.  

sounds more like sciatica than herpes going on but it will take a proper exam to get a diagnosis.

since he had unprotected sex, he can cover his bases with proper testing at the proper times. he can get tested for chlamydia, gonorrhea, trich and ngu now. he needs to wait until 6 weeks post encounter for syphilis testing and 3 months for herpes, hiv and hepatitis testing.
