Six weeks ago I got together with four other guys. We had sex and we all used protection, but two things are bugging me.

There was a dildo and one of the guys used it on me. I was the only guy it was used on, but it belonged to someone else. It wasn't dirty or anything and the tip of it was the only thing that was in me. The other thing that's bothering me is, is that I had coffee that morning and I burnt the roof of my mouth. I had oral sex with all of the guys later that night. They didn't ejaculate in my mouth, but I'm worried about the pre cum.

Last week I started feeling sleeping around 8 each night. I was constantly yawning all the time and there was a tickling sensation in my head as well as dull numb sensation in my jaw/teeth and in thebridge of my nose. I'm not yawning as much anymore, but my jaw, teeth, nose, and head still have that numb/tickling sensation. I'm thinking it might be TMJ but I'm not sure, which brings me to this: Towards the end of last month, I was drinking straight coffee creamer. I don't know why. I'm 20 and I eat a lot of junk food, lol.

Anyway, after two weeks of drinking it I had a tooth ache, but it felt like it was inbetween two of my teeth, right on my gum.  After that the pain shot from my gums to the left side of my jaw, up to my left ear, and into my head. The pain lasted for about two weeks and left me with this tickling/numb sensation that I have now. Besides TMJ, I thought it might've been a sinus infection. I'm not sure.

Last week I had a Red Bull. It was the first time in awhile. My stomach started hurting and I've been feeling nauseous ever since. Two days after I had the Red Bull, I woke up feeling like I had lifted weights the day before (even though I didn't) because my whole upper body felt sore. That went away about two days later.

Now, I'm just stuck with this sensation in my face/head and feeling nauseous. Oh yeah, one more thing. Most of last month I was eating once a day. It wasn't by choice.

I'm hoping that I'm feeling this way because I'm eating more than once a day and that it's not HIV. I'm getting tested tomorrow, but any help would be appreciated.

One more thing. For some reason I feel so much better after I use the bathroom.

HIV is a fragile virus and is not passed on environmental objects such as a dildo, no, not even if there were body fluids from someone else on it.

Your saliva contains over a dozen elements and proteins which form a very effective barrier against the transmission of viable HIV.

You are worrying needlessly and there is no need for HIV testing.

If you have symptoms that are bothering you that is something to discuss with your doctor. This is not an HIV situation.

Just make sure that if you are involved in either vaginal or anal intercourse the insertive partner is always without exception wearing a condom. Those are the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV.

Thanks so much, Andy.

I think the worrying is what made me feel sick, because I feel absolutely great now.

Thanks again. ;D

OK. You're welcome. Now get on with your life and remember to always use condoms for intercourse. No exceptions.
