stressed due to unprotected sex
I had unprotected sex on the 26-27 Dec 2005 after an abstinence period of about 8 years. A week thereafter, i started presenting with strange sensations o my face-I feel as though something is moving in my ears, above ears, cheeks& temporal area. The sensations disappear only if I massage the affected area.This was followed by sweating that would come & go with no fever.Today, I had cramps around my lower abdomen followed by one loose stools. I had a small pimple on my labia and a swollen gland on my left groin last week and this has disappeared. I am now extremely worried & have gone for a blood test last week but im scared to go for the results. Please help me

Cyberdoc could probably give you the best answer here. SOme of what you describe could be caused puely by stress and worry ( such as muscle tension causing the strange sensations in the face, relieved by massage ) ; maybe also the sweating, especially in the very humid weather we are having in much of the country at present.
I'd think ( but do check with Cyberdoc ) that you're probably all right, but the tests are essential --- don't be scared to go for the results ( and further testing later which nmay be needed ) --- because if it's good news you need to know it, and if there is some sort of infection, then the earlier treatment starts, the beter
