Hi. I would like you to assess this situation for possible exposure to any STI including HIV. I went to a massage parlour. During the massage the lady rubbed the head of my penis (I was not wearing a condom) against her nipples 5-10 seconds. To the best of my knowledge there was no discharge (either blood or breast milk) from her nipples but however for obvious reasons I cannot be 100% sure. There was no oral / anal / vaginal penetrative sex at all. Please assess this situation for any STI including HIV. Thanks

A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO, I FELT REALLY TIRED AND LAYED DOWN ON THE COUCH TO TAKE A NAP BUT ALL OF A SUDDEN MY HEART FELT LIKE IT STOPPED AND I STARTED TO PASS OUT. JUST BEFORE I BECAME UNCONSCIOUS, I TOOK IN A BREATH AND EVERYTHING WENT BACK TO NORMAL EXCEPT FOR HAVING A VERY BAD HEADACHE. A FEW MINUTES LATER, I WAS HAVING CONSTANT PALPITATIONS ( I HAVE ALWAYS HAD THESE BUT ONLY EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE). THE PALPITATIONS WOULD SUBSIDE AT TIMES BUT NEVER COMPLETELY STOPPED FOR ABOUT 24 HOURS. NOW, I FEEL VERY EXHAUSTED AND WILL HAVE A COUPLE PALPITATIONS HERE AND THERE. I JUST FOUND OUT THAT THE HEART STOPPING AND PASSING OUT IS WHAT MY OLDER SISTER GETS A LOT ALSO. DO YOU THINK THIS IS CAUSED BY STRESS OR POSSIBLY A GENETIC DISORDER?

Lately, I have been having some concerns with my heart. Just yesterday, while I was laying down I suddenly felt as my heart stopped followed by a cold chill run through my body. I couldn t breath and it just felt so weird. It didn t hurt but the fact that my breathing suddenly stopped for a few seconds, scared me. I decided to go to my doctor right away where I found out that my EKG came back abnormal. I have been feeling very tired and I can t seem to find the energy to workout. I just got back from a short walk at the park. A few minutes after exercising I began to feel extremely sleepy. So much so I yawned a good 20 times. What could possibly be wrong with me? I m 24 and I have Always been fit.
