I have been tired for about 3 mounths and everything is getting down...Please help!

Response from Dr. Henry

Still unlikely to be HIV but I would get tested again at perhaps 3 months after any exposure that has you worried. Other sexually transmitted diseases can cause oral problems (herpes, gonorrhea) so you might consider getting checked for those if you have had any oral sex. Mononucleosis is another common condition that can cause those symptoms. KH
