Hi,Thanks for providing more information.
Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Firstly i want to assure you that chances of Chlamydia infection are less likely in your case as you have no associated penile discharge,frequent urination.
Now as you have neck stiffness,itching.tingling sensation in forearms,pain in armpits,headache so all these symptoms are suggestive of Cervical spondylosis(compression of nerves at cervical spine).
Other possible differential diagnosis of itching/tingling sensation in forearms may include Neurodermatitis.
So you can apply 1% hydrocortisone cream on affected area.
And Take Cetirizine.
As you have dry skin so apply calamine lotion just after a bath.
As you have few episodes of loose stools so possibly there could be some sort of stomach infection which can also result in generalised body & joints ache,low grade fever,headache,tiredness.
So you can take metamucil.
And start multivitamin.
Take OTC Motrin.
If your symptoms'll persist make an appointment with your GP.

No problem about the delay as I am sure you are busy. What about HIV or is it just a over active imagination and panic on my part
Thanks for the follow-up.
Chances of HIV infection are less(1 in 1000).
However you need to undergo HIV Elisa at 3 months from the date of exposure for confirmation.
It's good idea to opt for test for a precautionary measure.
