Possible ARS
      #12096 - 11/10/00 02:56 PM

Been reading these posts for about a month. You guys are great. Here is my story. I had unprotected sex with a female on Sept 10. On Sept 24th I had Flu like symptoms. On the 23rd I was out drinking and out late. I also ate some fast food that I do not normally eat. Within three hours of eating Cheese burgers I came down with Aches, Direaha, Chills and a possible fever. Not sure. Also had night sweats for two nights. All the symptoms except the direaha left the next day. The Direhea left about a week later. On Oct 8, four weeks after possible exposure I took an elisa. Neg result. I also called the girl (ex-girlfriend) and she said she was neg. I hope I can believe her. Help If I had ars symptoms and they subsided so soon would my body have antibodies to HIV? I know I have to test again but any input will help. Losing my mind!

Before anything else, the negative antibody at 1 month is encouraging. Usually after ARS symptoms occur, the elisa test is either reactive or indeterminate. Get another test around the 12 week mark, if its neg. you're in the clear. Good luck== PVS

Thank you PVS. I took another test again today. It is 61 days after possible exposure. almost nine weeks. I really like to say thank you to all who help us through these times of trial. Without your responses and care I think most of us would be lost. Pray for all of us during these times, I will pray for you all!
