paranoid after hiv test

Aug 28, 2008

A while back I had unprotected sex with a girl.It was totally out of character but left me paranoid bout stds particularly HIV. I contacted my local GUM clinic and had a full std test including blood for hiv after 3 months as recommended by the doctor. Everything came back negative but i'm still really worried. Any slight ailment sore throat or otherwise puts me into a panic. I feel like I'm not myself. This worry has been goin on for over a year and a half now. Am i being unnneccasary paranoid.

Response from Dr. Horwath

You can be confident in the results of the tests you had.

You are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, not HIV.

I am going crazy!
