Hi,
Thank you for contacting Healthcare Magic.
Mild headache after sex is common and can be ignored. However, in your case, there is weakness of left leg and hand along with vomiting. Here, we need to exclude any intra-cranial problem (such as brain hemorrhage). I request you to visit the emergency department of a nearby hospital and XXXXXXX the physician/neurologist. A CT scan of the head can be done, which can help in early diagnosis and treatment.
There is no need to worry at present, as early treatment often leads to successful outcomes even in cases of brain hemorrhage.
Please get back if you have any more queries.
Best wishes,

Thank you for getting back.
The initial treatment given by your doctor was on correct lines. Now that 10 days have passed, you can consult him again. Recheck the liver function tests including SGOT and SGPT. If they are still abnormal, you may continue medications as per his advice.
However, if SGPT and SGOT are normal, going for a CT scan of brain will be better.
As I mentioned earlier, if brain hemorrhage is diagnosed and treated early, it is curable. Also, I do not expect any major hemorrhage, as your symptoms are mild in nature.
Please get back if you have any more queries.

Thank you for getting back.
SGOT and SGPT are related to liver and are elevated in liver problems.
Headache is not related to SGPT/SGOT elevation.
Brain hemorrhage can be diagnosed only after CT scan of head.
You do not have any symptoms of STD at present.
The symptoms of STD may include pain while passing urine, discharge from urethra, ulcers over glans penis, etc. If you have any of these symptoms, you may consult a physician.
If headache and vomiting are improving, it may settle on its own. However, if they are persisting, please get a CT scan done.
Please write back if you have any more queries.
