Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

Your symptoms could be caused by multiple things, and it's difficult to be certain on the basis of a simple online question.

Jaw pain could be the result of dental problems, swollen lymph nodes or oral ulcers, to name a few.

Groin rash is quite possibly a fungal (yeast) infection.

Headaches and blood in your stools are more worrisome symptoms- both could be of minor significance or serious- including causes which are AIDS-related complications. These deserve a prompt discussion with your medical provider.

Hope that helps and please feel free to write back, BY
