What is this?
Feb 6, 2001

I have only had one high risk exposure (hetero unprotected sex) I am the male, and the exposure was 2 1/2 years ago. I have recently had dry skin, and weak legs (mostly knee joints) I have read all the statistics on female to male transmission and find it hard to believe that I could be positive. worried sick and don't want to get tested. Do these symptoms sound like symptomatic HIV?

Response from Dr. Young

Your symptoms don't sound like HIV, though when in doubt, get tested. Testing would put an end to the questions. BY
