Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for your follow up.
If you were infected no less than 2 months ago, a negative RPR and LP would effectively rule out neurosyphilis.
I'm sorry to hear that your unwell, but I'd be focusing my attention on the myriad of alternative diagnoses, rather on the syphilis.
Here's to better health,
