rapid heart rate.
      #158440 - 08/10/05 06:35 PM

Hope someone can answer this for me.
I had an exposure (unprotected insertive vaginal with positive woman) 4 months ago. tested one week ago. I have lymphnodes in my neck that are larger than normal and a rapid heart rate. Could recent HIV infection cause these problems this early especialy the rapid heart rate (possible anemia)? Is my test truly conclusive?
What should I do? Get tested again?

If you have tested negative after 4 months, then there is NO need to test again. I know when I was anemic I never noticed a rapid heart rate.....this is not related to hiv. (but your rapid heart rate is caused by your constant concern and fear). When a person goes thru a type of anxiety attack...their heart rate is more rapid.
but have tested DO NOT have hiv.
