Still just a little bit worried.

Apr 17, 2010

Hi Dr. Bob I'd like to thank you for answering my last question. I really appreciate it. I will definitely be donating to your foundation. Your words really calmed me down about my situation. However, it's the 9th day and my throat is still bothering me a bit. If you remember, I said it started bothering me on the 2nd day. My tongue is really pale and almost resembles white hairy tongue. I still don't have fever or anything else. Do you know what could be causing this? My nerves are getting the best of me.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Sorry, I can't diagnose the cause of your symptoms over the Internet. Certainly it's possible anxiety is the main culprit. ("My nerves are getting the best of me.")

Also, remember symptoms associated with HIV acute retroviral syndrome (ARS) generally become manifest two to three weeks after HIV primary infection, not two days.

Dr. Bob
