Please help, possible HIV exposure unprotected sex exactly one week ago today, very random numbness in hands and feet, even while walking and moving. Could this be HIV related??
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi What you are experiencing is not HIV related. Also symptoms of HIV would not show up this soon.
To be completely sure of your status getting tested is the thing to do. The guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 3 months, if both of these tests are negative then so are you.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
