Nobody knows

Hello, I have big big problem. I was always healthy and sport person, after 1 incidence (receptive anal sex with trans) everything changed. I am hetero anyway. After two weeks very bad flu started. Than itchy burning skin all over my body, when it stops, pins and needles all over my body and tingling sensations. Fatigue is still here for two months!! Also, I have dry skin and rash (purple hair follicles) on my legs and arms which I never had. Very bad leg burning and pain is still here I cannot do exercise like before, nothing. It’s also difficult to sleep due to pain.
Funny thing is that all STD test are negative: 4 HIV tests,siphylis, herpes etc....hepatitis B,C also....
nobody knows what wrong with my body

Herpes can cause those symptoms you mention. I went back in your other questions and you mention your HSV IgG result was 44000. That is way too high to be brushed off as nothing.

Herpes antiviral medicines available include acyclovir, famciclovir and Valaciclovir.

Illness, poor diet, emotional or physical stress, friction in the genital area, prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light, surgical trauma, or steroidal medication may trigger a herpes outbreak.

The frequency of outbreaks can often be managed through stress management, adequate rest, nutrition, and exercise.
Red star Thank you very much !! I have same opinion that can cause 44 000 IgG!! Because i had some blisters on anus few days after. I think Its genital herpes. I thought also that this symptoms are maybe caused by herpes but doctor said that means nothing. You helped me very much, anyway do you think also that nerve pain in legs and tingling can be caused by herpes? Thank you so much

Yes, herpes can cause nerve pain in the legs.

"Herpes simplex virus type 2–associated neurological disease may result from primary infection or reactivation of latent HSV-2. Neurological disease after primary HSV-2 infection is seen most often in neonates. After the neonatal period, HSV-2 infection is principally, but not exclusively, acquired through sexual activity."

"Virtually any part of the neuraxis may be affected by this virus, including the retina, brain, brainstem, cranial nerves, spinal cord, and nerve roots."*

*JAMA Neurology - Neurological Complications of Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2 Infection

Other treatment options include antiviral herbs such as elderberry, calendula, echinacea, garlic, astragalus and licorice root.

L-lysine (1000 milligrams three times daily) can help treat and prevent outbreaks.

Also a diet high in lysine and low in arginine. Fish, beef, chicken, lamb, milk, cheese, brewer's yeast, beans, mung bean sprouts and most fruits and vegetables have more lysine than arginine (except peas). Gelatin, chocolate, carob, coconut, oats, wholewheat and white flour, soybeans, peanuts and wheatgerm have more arginine than lysine.
Thank you so much. I glad that people like you are here and can help and support people.  I will try valaciclovir tablets at first , hope will help :)...
also eating lot of vitamins. I hope that also weird red and purple hair follicles are caused by herpes

Herpes folliculitis is a rare manifestation of HSV. This may be what you have. See what symptoms resolve taking valaciclovir. :)
Eating lots of vitamins is unlikely to help. A proper diet is all you need unless you have been diagnosed with a particular vitamin deficiency.
