Response from Dr. McGowan

Sorry to hear you are unwell. Luckily HIv does not appear to be the cause of your symptoms. They are fairly non-specific. seems that you have had a few things going on such as EBV (mononucleosis) and mycoplasma which could explain some of the constellation of symtoms. You should go to a good GP and have a full check-up. Have them test for auto-immune conditions such as Still's disease amd lupus which may explain some of your joint aches and swellings.

Hope you feel better.
