Response from Mr. Molaghan

Hi Alex

I'm not sure what you mean by "numea." Do you mean "pneumonia?" Let me know. The other symptoms sound like a flu or virus. If you have pain in your "pines" and abnormal urination, you might want to check with your doctor to make sure you don't have a urinary tract infection. These are not typical symptoms of HIV, but if you think you might be at risk, only a blood test will tell if you are infected. Relax …and you might find it helpful to visit The Body's Safe Sex and Prevention Forum.
