help!! cant take it any longer
      #111826 - 09/22/04 06:37 PM

made a stupid mistake of having having sex with an escort...
we had protected sex, but un protected oral, i recieved it from her..(did not give oral to her) and some kissing...

so anyway, a day after i started to panic, my lips became quiet sore, and to this date the sorenes comes and goes (like you do in the winter when u have chapped lips)

then a few days later my body stared to itch, and started noticing small spots, that would pop up and dissapear mainly on my legs, thighs and lower legs, and my back as wel as my arms...( not many but a dozen or so on my legs and 6-7 on the arms in total.. they resembled mosquito bites and some dissapers in a few hours...

then after two weeks i started getting burning sensation on my thighs and calfs...and my upper arms. I got really scared at this point...and still am. but after a few hours its goes away...also sometime when this is happening my skin feels sensitive expecially my arms and the inner thighs

now im on week 6, and though the spots have gone, i think im suffering from Peripheral neuropathy? im getting some pins and needles in my feet, and muscle twiches in my legs, feet, sometimes in my arms, back, my butt, and mild ones on my face, though not as often. somtimes i can heart my heart beating too. this has been going for 4 days now..its not too severe but it noticable...

I can feel one node in my neck, size of a small black eye bean smallish and can feel it if i turn my neck streched full to the left... cant feel one on the otherside though , the one i can feel its not painfull quiet hard...not sure if it was always this size....

im going mad here with worry..i need some help!

Your going to have to take "it". What "it" is, I don't know, but it is extremely doubtful that "it" is HIV. Maybe it has to do with the fact that you used protection during sex and I take it that protection did not fail. It may also be that there has never been a case of HIV transmitted via oral sex. It is only hypothetical. But if you insist that you are sick and are going to die, take a test now. The overwhelming majority of people will seroconvert after 6 weeks. If you are negative, which you are in all likelihood, retest again at 90 days and put this behind you.

Pull yourself together.

Dude, work the odds!!!!

The odds of the escort being +ve (min 1-100) multiplied by the odds of an unbroken condom not working properly (min 1-100) or the risk of insertive oral sex (min 1-1000) multiplied by you getting infected from this one encounter (1-100) = minimum odds of minimum 1,000,000-1. You'd have to be one unlucky mother liker. Relax, have a beer.

Dude, you used a condom, it protected you plus you cannot catch HIV by receiving oral. See your DR if you are that concerned but its not HIV. Stop seeing escorts!

Man Im praying for you. I have a lot of the symptoms you are talking about and going through hell too. The only thing i can tell you is to take a test. Its been six weeks .Usually it will show up.(I took one at six weeks and it was neg,) I still have to wait till 12 weeks but it makes me breathe just a little better. I also took a hivpcr rna test from my provider. that should come in in a couple of days. Good luck we are all praying for you and wishing neg results even if i am poz God Bless you man
