|thought I had Mono
Mar 2, 2002
I had a one night stand and didn't use a condom. The girl told me she had an std test two weeks prior. (it was negative) 4 -5 weeks afterwards I got very sick. I was very tired and had swollen glands. I also had a sore throat and white patches on the back of my throat. The doctor said it was either strep or mono. He gave me antibiotics. I was sick for a total of 3 weekes. I was very stressed do to college and I didn't sleep very well leading up to feelling bad. Before I got sick I Only averaged 4 hours a night and I was very stressed. I plan on getting tested. Does it take 4 weeks to show symptoms if i am hiv +? How long would those symptoms last? thanks
Response from Dr. Henry
I would suggest going to a local clinic where they do lots of HIV testing and receive counseling and get an HIV test. It is unlikely that you are HIV infected so that getting counseling and a negative test result will relieve your stress and then other causes can be pursued if you are still having symptoms. KH
please,i dont know what to do..i need help..
