Headache and infection

Apr 26, 2012

Had a headache for 7 weeks after definite risk. Started around 6 weeks after possible other symptoms within 12 weeks Other than headache. Some muscle aches after 14weeks.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi After having a definite risk than I would recommend having a definite test. The standards for testing are to have the first at 3 weeks and then another at 3 months. 97% of the population test negative or positive at this point and if you want to be sure you can have a test ran again at 6 months.

Be well and get tested, Shannon
