I got drunk one night 2 and a half years ago and stupidly had unprotected sex.
I noticed a bit of a burning sensation in my penis shortly after and clear discharge at the tip of my penis the next day.
I did an at home std test which came back negative, but the symptoms continued. I've also visited a sexual health clinic a few months back to validate the at home test, but they also came back saying I was all clear.
About a year ago then developed hip pain, burning eyes and ankle pain. I saw a rheumatologist and he diagnosed me with reactive arthritis.
Here is a list of all my symptoms and all the tests and specialist I have seen... I'm getting desperate now as I feel like I'm getting nowhere with the constant visits to the Drs :
For the past 2.5 years:
Discomfort when passing urine (after sex, can last for a few days)
Unusual smelling urine
Fishy smell around penis even after washing
Burning pain after ejaculation
Instances of blood in semen
Have noticed clear discharge at tip of penis
Frequent upset stomach
Frequent sore throats
For around a year:
Eyes can become red and painful
Symptoms over the past few months:
Tingling in arms and legs (frequent pins and needles)
Hip pain on the left side has significantly reduced.
Intense hip pain on right side has developed.
Tests I’ve had:
Seen rheumatologist - diagnosed with reactive arthritis (the cause for this has never been diagnosed)
Seen Ophthalmologists - told I had dry eyes and to use drops.
Seen a neurologist and had an MRI + CT scan: came back clear with no further action
Had nerve conduction study: all normal
Had an STD check : told all clear
Numerous blood / urine and stool tests : low infection markers. Told low vitamin d levels, been taking supplements.
Had prostate examination. Told all fine.
Had an ultrasound of kidneys and bladder: all clear
