Can anyone help me please?

I recently had Gonorrhea. I went to my GU clinic and had it treated within 10days of catching it.The physical symptoms (ie discharge) of the infection vanished, but about 4 days after finishing the antibiotics (had 7 days doxycycline and an injection)...i started feeling ill and have been ever since (4 weeks now). My symptoms include all those of someone with a severe bodywide infection. inclduing painful swollen glands, fever, chills, loss of appetite, pains/pins and needles in hands/tips of fingers and toes, headache bad chest and throat, palpitations. The only trouble having gone back to the clinic, that treated me and having another swab taken they say im negative, but I have read extensively that a locally taken swab may not identify a drug resistant bodywide infection of gonarhea...they want test me for this saying i must use a GP but i dont want the GP to know my sexual health history.

Im very ill....and dont know what to do about it....perhaps I could find a way to get the more advanced antibiotics elesewhere?
