Dizziness, pain, numbness, white sores and swollen mouth

Hello Doc,
I m completely disturbed since last 40 days around bcz after t day i had sex wid an escort im facing abnormal symtoms (symptoms) which are completely unusual fr me bcz till now I had been a very healthy person n have not faced anythng like ths before...i had done protected oral wid her (i was wearing condom) and then severe kissing , she almost bite my tongue ( not sure whether bleeding occurred or not), there was also exchange of saliva between us....later i fingered her and might have touched my bare penis after tht...she also touched my anus area wid her fingers for some time...i never did vaginal or anal sex wid her although she kept on insisting me...

1] just after tht day i was feeling very stressed next day and had bit temp also and then severe dizziness started from tht day n almost i spent my 30 days wid severe vertigo and abnormal pain in the body every day. my dizziness has stopped since last 10 days but tht pain is still there.
2] Im experiencing tht unusual pain since tht day n its like somebody is injecting me somethng n its very weird type of pain and mostly it lasts for just a few seconds n thn go n comes again.
3] Before 1 week i had sore throat like conditions may be it might b bcz of rainy weather of new york or i dont knw but after that i had developed numbness, tingling like feeling on my hands and legs mostly and white sores inside my mouth (painless) and they are not going only but expanding and today i got scared most bcz i found tht my mouth has swollen from inside ( i mean the skin beneath my cheeks and between teeths)

I had asked ths question to Dr. Jones of HIV expert forum initially when i was experiencing dizziness, pain and white sores but he told me to relax and dnt worry bcz symptoms wont start frm t next day but i am very scared....i told him about white sores and swollen gums from inside of mouth but he is not replying. im experiencing ths since last 1 month sir so im very concerned abt all ths happening with me.. plz guide m.

Welcome to the forum.  However, you have had accurate replies on both the community forum and the HIV international forum (Dr. Jose Gonzalez-Garcia, not Jones).  Your symptoms are not those of any STD; and no STD or HIV symptoms can start so soon after catching the infection.  Further, you describe entirely safe sexual practices:  STDs are not transmitted by kissing, fingering, or any other hand-genital or hand-anal contact.

You should see your own doctor to have your symptoms evaluated.  They are likely to be the physical manfestations of anxiety about the event.  However, no anxiety is warranted based on such an exposure.  But to be sure you don't have something serious, medical evaluation is warranted.  Whatever the cause, they are not due to an STD or any other infection from  the events with the escort.

Thanks doc for ur prompt reply and i felt good after listening comments from you and Dr. Jose (Sorry fr my spelling mistake, its all bcz of my circumstances tht im making such sort of mistakes)..

I do believe yours expert comments but whenever i feel pain and see my mouth sores i get afraid and i read that infections do start frm next day also and numbness, dizziness and white sores are the symptoms of HIV infection thts wat scares me most...Even i pray and hope that I havent gt any sorts of infection ...and these symptoms arent related wid anythng of tht...

I would also like to tell you that long ago around 8 months back (tht was my frst time and ths was my second time) i had protected sex wid other escort (protected oral n vaginal) but i was fine till now so i am not scared abt tht but after ths incident frm t next day only i gt unusual symptoms n dizziness especially tht scared me too much but if you are telling me tht symptoms doesnt start frm next day only im feeling tht Are those symptoms thn related to my previous encounter ???? (it should not be I pray))....Hope everythng s fine and these pain ,numbness and white sores swollen gums disappear soon...Thnx for ur reply and hope you will clear my doubts ths time too...

Trust me -- it is imposssible for HSV symptoms to start less than 24 hours after exposure.  That timing either means your symptoms had absolutely nothing to do with the exposure you are worried about, or that it is due to some sort of chemical or allergic reaction, not an infection.

You obviously are anxious about your sexual choices, but don't confuse shame/guilt/anxiety with infection risk.  They aren't the same.  Just because of the timing of your symptoms doesn't mean they are related to your escort experiences.  Look at it this way:  every day there are thousands (millions?) of sexual events between first-time partners, and every day thousands of people get various new genital, oral, or other possible STD symptoms.  It is obvious that the same events will often happen to the same people, merely by chance.  That's probably what's going on here.

See a doctor if you remain concerned.  But there is nothing else this forum can offer you, so that will end this thread.

thnx a lot doc...i thought tht i shd take some time and focus more on other things but its all waste bcz watever im gng through i cant explain u..

Since yesterday my tip of penis has become black on both sides and i can see it and have developed sores type i dnt know wat it is on the scrotum part...also have developed acne like things with white spots on the back of my chest....and i know doctor ths s not usual and it has added more to my worries apart from pain n white sores on my mouth n swollen gums (its almost 15 days now)...after reading ur last post i tght tht may be im ok and worrying too much but doctor ths s now huting my genital parts also....do u thnk tht turning black of tip of penis and sores like spots on scrotum can be related to my encounter because doc i read today tht still kissing can cause some stds like herpes, gonnorhoe, syphillis (syphilis), mononucleosis and hepatitis...plzzz doc help me and ths would be my last question to u ...(i thgt tht i wont ask u further question but doc ths s somethng i wanted to let u know bcz its now hurting my genital spots )))...thnx fr ur previous reply and awaiting ur last reply...thnx i need ur advice :(
