at my wits end -__- does this sound like herpes?

Okay, so if you check the history of my posts here, mostly if not all of them are questions about STDs or 'am I pregnant'. I'm clearly a hypochondriac. But a lot of times you all really talk some sense into me and my mind is a little bit at ease.For the past two weeks or so, I've been having a sort of dull ache in my pelvic area. It feels like in my bladder? Uterus? I'm not really sure. I didn't pay it too much at first. I was ovulating at the time, so I thought it could be associated with that. I also noticed I had an extreme increase in urinating frequency. I like to stay hydrated, so normally I do pee quite a bit. But I took more notice when I couldn't go two hours without running to the bathroom. It doesn't hurt or burn when I go, I just can't.stop.going. And then there's itching. Oh the itching ;__;. It's like a completely random, extremely irritating itch. It's not bad enough that I scratch and I don't have any kind of burning, redness, odor, or discharge. At first, I swore up and down it was chlamydia. I've had it in the past and it caused me to be extremely itchy, but there was kind of a pungent odor that went with it. So I got tested last week on Monday. I gave a urine sample and had a pelvic swab to test for chlamydia/gonorrhea. Everything turned out to be negative. No yeast infection, BV, UTI, chlamydia, or gonorrhea. I didn't mention the pelvic pain then because I didn't think much of it. So I went to the Dr. again today and they took another urine sample, they took some blood to check for HIV, syphilis, etc. (but not herpes), and they told me to go have an ultrasound done as soon as I could. I could be making things up in my mind (which I usually do), but the pelvic pain and itching has gotten worse. I'm feeling stabbing pains which started out on the right side of my abdomen reaching around to my lower back, but I feel it on the left side now as well. It's not all over at the same time, it sort of alternates. I also have random twinges of pain in my vagina. Of course I've been compulsively Googling my symptoms. I know herpes can present without lesions or sores, or any symptoms at all, and I'm cooking up these crazy ideas in my mind how this pain and itching could be herpes, just because I don't know what the hell is causing it. I've been feeling some pain in my legs as well..I'm just scaring the shit out of myself, I cheated on my current partner [with a partner from the past] about a month and a half ago which I regret so much, and I couldn't live with the thought of giving something to her..I couldn't live with myself. I'm gonna make an appt for an ultrasound 1st thing in the morning, but until then could anybody give me some input? The Dr. wasn't all that helpful. Of course she told me without lesions or sores it's extremely unlikely that it could be herpes, which I know isn't true since in a lot of cases it's asymptomatic. I appreciate any words of wisdom. Thanks everyone.

ETA - I forgot to mention that this past Thurs. me and my partner were being intimate, she was fingering me for like 15 min. and I started to bleed. I'm not sure if this has any correlation with my other symptoms, but I thought I'd mention it as it's never happened to me before [bleeding after sex]. It looked like old period blood and after we were finished I only saw it when I wiped after going to the bathroom.
