Hello Doc. Im concerned that i may have been exposed to HIV virus. I had some more or less vague symptoms after exposure, headache, stuffed nose, some fatigue... the symptoms didnt came all at the same time, they would come one after the other. If i would not had this risk situation i would not give my attention to them. But the wierdest symptoms witch came after those flu like symptoms were pain in knee joints and dull muscle aches that last for more than 6 weeks now; 3 months after exposure. they go away now slowly. i had also at around 6.week or so some itching throu the body. so for me this are the most noticeable symptoms. they show that somting systemic is going on. i didnt had swollen lymphnodes until recently, just one very small non tender lymph on the bac of my neck under hair. im so beyond stressed about my risk situation that i can not think straight. i hope that it can be maybe some vitamin d deficiency, fibromyalgia or something but i really prepare myself for the possible positive test. Greetings, Joe
