As I have said many times, people only read what they want and skip the rest when they are reading about signs of HIV infection. A direct quote from the section below what they have down is "However, no one should assume they are infected if they have any of these symptoms. Each of these symptoms can be related to other illnesses. Again, the only way to determine whether you are infected is to be tested for HIV infection.
Similarly, you cannot rely on symptoms to establish that a person has AIDS. The symptoms of AIDS are similar to the symptoms of many other illnesses. AIDS is a medical diagnosis made by a doctor based on specific criteria established by the CDC."
Also if you read the top of the page right these are not first signs of any kind. These are signs of acute infection and the result of having HIV for May years without treatment.
Also having oral is safe and I don't see how you convinced the doctor to give you PEP, you did not put yourself at risk.
And I hope you enjoy insulting those of us living with HIV with your comment about knowing this is a sign of death. It sounds more like a sign of ignorance and lack of actual education about this disease and its contraction.

i am so sorry about my words. i do not mean that. because i am so scared. and because in my country, people often has prejudice about this disease. i promise with you and other members i will not use any words like this. i also swear before Buddha, i will never do terrible work again. i still hope and wait to the test day. thank very much for your help, GmanBill.
