Anybody experience constant itching?
      #160952 - 10/02/05 12:37 AM

Thanks for your encouragement! I know the odds are in my favor etc....However, there are soooo many "coincidences" happening right now it is freaking me out again. Last week I was 99% yoo hooing. Now, my gf has been sick for almost a week now with all the bad flu symptoms including a very bad fever last night. Perhaps, she is seroconverting as I don't know when I may have infected her. Also, even when my anxiety/stress vanished last week my itchy hands/feet etc...continued daily along with strange burning in my right armpit. There have been other strange "feelings" and "sensations" that I can hardly put into words. I recognize that many of my symptoms a few weeks ago could very easily be the result of anxiety/stress, but some of the more persistent "symptoms" I can't dismiss so easily anymore.

Anybody else having itching problems?????

This all sucks more than I can say!

If I tested positive now, at least I think I would be able to handle it better mentally than if I tested positive 3/4 weeks ago. To be honest, I feel like I am going to test positive next week at the 3 month mark. I don't want to say I told you so, but I know something is wrong with me. If not HIV, then some sort of virus.

I don't think there is any coincidence at all....because you feel you put yourself at risk, your mind is working overtime...shame you don't get OT..you'd be a rich man! All these "symptoms" are most likely because your mind is on high alert....as for your g/f...perhaps she has the FLU...it is starting to rear it's ugly head this season. You tested neg....it was a very encouraging sign....now just relax. Once you get your final neg result your coincidental symptoms will go away...I'd bet money on it. (During this horrible point in your life you will think about bodyparts you never gave a second thought to, such as your armpit...aside from deoderant, I doubt you thought about it much...I spent (okay...spend) so much time wondering if I have a vaginal itch or burn I have NEVER thought about my crotch so much as I have in the last few weeks...that and my mouth....things that never would have even raised as much as an eyebrow before have us convinced we are dying! ) You got a GREAT neg....one more and you're on to a bright and sunny future...I go for mine today...I pray for us all.
