I had a previous partner that I was with sexually before, tell me that they had Syphilis. We were intimate over 6 years ago....in that time I have had a range of symptoms but i am not sure are specific to Syphilis or not.These symtoms have included passing blood when going to the toilet at times, feeling constantly fatigued and aches and pains in my left and right rib organ areas, uti problems and more recently intense brain fog. Anyway I went to my local gum clinic convinced I had Syphilis and got test for everything possible. This week I got my results and too my surprise everything was negative. I’ve read online it’s possible to get a false negative in the late stages of Syphilis so I’m not sure if I should get tested again. Are Syphilis test 100% accurate after 6 years of contracting it? Would you recommend I get re-tested? Honestly getting a bit worried on what to do here. Surely one would think having sex with someone multiple times that had syphilis would probably mean i would have it too? i dont know really where to go with the subject. As far as i know its easy enough for me to research things like HIV and hepatitis and find the test are almost 100% accurate but with syphilis the information is scarce. Any info would be much appreciated.
