Burning Feet

Sep 2, 2012

Tested Negative in 2007 after 3 months (12 weeks minimum) from possible exposure.

Have had various symptoms over the last 4 1/2 years that have made me question it but never properly.

Have had no risks since this possible exposure, have recently entered a relationship, she got typical ARS symptoms 1-8 weeks after unprotected sex.

Also around 4 months ago i experienced burning feet, which went with cream and meds, however this has now come back again.

Coupled with other symptoms (probably caused by anxiety) i am feeling extremely worried again.

Should i be or is the 3 month negative conclusive and am I just being paranoid, the burning feet feeling is very real, tends to come when in bed or at my desk in work, or when driving

Thanks in advance for your response

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Your three month negative test is conclusive. The burning feet you are describing could be caused by the medications used to treat HIV, but not by the virus itself. If your symptoms persist, I would suggest seeing a doctor to discuss possible causes.

Also, have you been tested since that test in 2007? Anyone who is sexually active should be tested at least once a year, preferably every six months.

In health,
