Please clarify my incident.
Jun 2, 2012
Hello Doctor, Please help me. According to http://www.thebody.com/Forums/AIDS/SafeSex/Q221914.html I think that i was stabbed by a needle on cinema seat. Shannon R. Southall and few experts in my country answers that i am NOT at risk because HIV has very low quality. It seems to be good for me and i nearly forget this incident but... yesterday, i found a question on my country's red cross WebBoard which's similar to my case(he thinks he was stabbed by a needle on cinema seat like me) and the official answers that there is some risk if he's bleeding!! So, i'm worried and feel paranoid again. I can't do anything but think about HIV. Please clarify about this case that i'm safe or not. Now, i have a sore throat that make me more worried about HIV. Thank you very much.
