Symptoms and possible exposure
Mar 23, 2013
Dear doctors 10 days ago I had sex with a prostitute in brothel in Berlin. I used condom for vaginal but didnt use it for oral (received and gave). After few days (5 days) I started having fever which lasted about 3 days, but weakness never gone away, now I have loss of apetite, and a white tongue, and had diarrhea 1 day. I was taking lots of aspirin, and drinking lots of lemon tea. And I often sweat. Can you tell me, do my symtoms may be that one of HIV, or other stds? I noticeed that when I think of getting infected I sweat more. Can stress be the reason of my weakness?
Thank you Doctors
Response from Dr. Wohl
Yes, stress can make you develop symptoms, as you have noticed. There is more out there than HIV and I do recommend your getting tested for these.
