|Am I showing symptoms of HIV?
Jan 10, 2012
I recently went to the doctor for a swollen lymph node and was diagnosed with pharyngitis and sinusitis. This is the second infection in the past month. The previous infection was discovered through blood tests that revealed a high white blood cell count. I was also running a fever. Diarrhea, fatigue, and headaches have also been present. I have attempted and had occasional unprotected sex but none with people that were aware of any HIV infection. Am I just worrying too much and having a case of self-diagnosis, or is this reasonable concern that should be attended to immediately?

If you have any doubts, get tested for HIV unanimously. It is the reasonable thing to do. Your symptoms may have nothing to do with HIV, but there is only one way to find out.
