I spent a night with a girl and we were dry humping for about an hour (me in my boxers and she was wearing a thong). At one point I took my boxers off and she, still in her thongs, rubbed her private parts over my genital area for 10 seconds or less.
2 days later I traveled to Asia on a 16-hour flight and the following day I noticed a red rash on my thigh. Within the next day or two I had flu-like symptoms, fatigue, burning pain and tingling in my thigh, both sides of my legs and feet, and muscle twitching in my thigh, calves, and arms.
I looked for noticeable blisters or bumps but did not notice anything that stood out. Even the rash was gone within a day or two.
I tested over there around two weeks past my exposure and got the following results:
Hsv1 IgG 1.1 U/ML, IgM 2.1 U/ML, and for HSV 2 IgG 0.80 U/ML, IgM 3.6 U/ML. The reports say all negative.
Negative below 20
Positive > 25
I also went to see a dermatologist to inspect and he didn’t find anything unusual.
The girl I had the encounter with tested 3 weeks after our exposure and claims the results were negative for HSV. I did not have any other encounter other than with her that time over the past 4 months.
I just don’t know what to think at this point as I’m still feeling an occasional burning pain in my thighs and some muscle twitching there as well as my arms.

The sexual encounter that you had did not put you at risk for HSV, due to the barrier of her thong. I would recommend that you believe the negative result

Would there be any other causes for my symptoms that you can think of? Could this be anxiety-related?

I really can’t think of what else might be causing these very generalized symptoms, no. Anxiety could play a part there, but if her genitals were covered by a thong, this just isn’t risky for HSV

I recall her wearing a thin see through thong. Would that make chances of transmission higher in this case or is it still low risk?

The herpes virus wouldn’t go through the fabric unless it was lace which has holes in it by its nature. But still, you aren’t having lesions which would be most typical for a new herpes infection. I don’t know about the fabric specifically but I think the risk is still really really low of transmission in your situation.
