I'm 38 heterosexual male with genital herpes, during last 2 months i had few ( 6 ) unprotected oral sex encounters with different persons in SE asia. Before that time i had no sex for 8 months and my vdrl tests were negative. After 2 months from first encounter i noticed a small round, flat ,painless, dark red sore on my penis glans.
At first i thought it was just herpes, but this one lasted for almost a week. 2 days after i noticed this i did a vdrl test in a small dirty lab on an island in asia. This test was positive. I also noticed i have vertigo for 0.5 a second when putting myself to bed, and after switching position in bed.
I fly out to a bigger city with a proper clinic, they did rpr test , result was non reactiv. I did intramuscular injection of penicling G. Then put myself on 200mg doxycyline taken every 12 hours. I talked with neurologist , he did few tests on me which he said I passed ok, except one which was that my pupils were not shrinking with light test. I will go do the spinal tap, but its not easy to do here.
The question is - was i that unlucky to not only get a syphilis from unprotected oral sex, but a neurosyphilis straight from the start ? Or am I paranoid. The vertigo is what worries me the most.
Thank you for answers.
