Touching glands in neck.
May 10, 1999
Ever since I read that swollen glands in the neck can be a sign of Acute HIV, I've been pressing them, touching them, feeling them (I think trying to convince myself that they must be swollen). Now they are a bit tender. Can just feeling them cause this?

Unlikely. But I guess it depends how hard and long you continue to press on them. MH
