Hi, I am a 32 year old single mom.I have not had unprotected sex for 3 years.Lately I have had weird illnesses like 1 yeast infection,canker sores in my mouth and sore throats, and I am realy tired, but I sleep and still have persisitent dark circles under my eyes. I am REALLY stressed with my job and personal life. Can stress mimic HIV symptoms too? Thank You Holly

Many diseases can cause the symptoms you describe. If you are worried that you may be HIV infected, I suggest you get an HIV antibody test.
