Am I infected HIV?
Jul 14, 2009

I had protected sex 3 weeks ago (23Jun).

I got the following symtoms:

Muscle: 4 days after that i got front arm muscle fatique (brachioradialis), a day later mild fatique with pectoralis major. The right front arm has been getting better but not fully recoverd, while the right pectoralis major recovered 3 days after i felt fatique. Now i feel a bit fatique at the back of right knee.

Throat: Feel dry for 3 weeks, sometimes feel like there was an external object inside the throat. Have sputum in it and my voice gets hoarse easily. A few times sneeze, sometime feel itchy and cough. Don't know how to distinguish if it was dry cough. Didn't get fever at all. All getting better now.

Diarrhea for about a week - excrement sometimes normal sometimes very liquid. still feel very little painful at lower belly.

I went blood test with P24 last thursday (09Jul) and results were all negative.

May I know the above matches HIV affection symtoms and chance of HIV infected?

Many thanks
