Long Lasting Symptoms
      #139496 - 04/01/05 01:12 AM

I've had symptoms for about 41 days they started 5 weeks after exposure and started as a flu like thing but with severe congestion, low fever, diahrea, etc that lasted for 2 weeks and then turned intoa headache acompanied by a sore throat night sweats, tingling in hands and feet and muscle spasms...have these lasted too long to be ARS? Or is it possible that I have converted into a symptomatic stage?

firstly most people who experience ARS do so very shortly after infection since the body launches a non specific attack on the foreign body. so safe to assume it shud happen 1-4 weeks after infection. secondly symptoms don;t usually last long (41 days). i don;t think it is symptomatic phase either (too early).
ur symptoms need to be checked out, but i bet it is mainly anxiety. get tested at 6 weeks then maybe again @ 13 weeks for piece of mind
