Anal Swelling & Numbness
      #167861 - 12/26/05 05:11 PM

Hello AlI,
Has any body experienced this symptom ? On a google search, this is related to STD's. I had a similar post awhile back - maybe mistitled as Enlarged Prostate. I did go see my family doctor last week (Day 29) and had him check it out. He did the finger check and didn't seemed concerned about anything. Now in addition to this feeling of swelling, I also have a newer feeling of numbness/heaviness in the area (exposure was hetero vaginal sex). I would like to compare notes to see if you've had a similar symptom. I know that the advice is to "see my doctor," but I have done that. I will be tested again and see another(?) doctor in mid-January. Again, this is one symptom among others, and the stress started after the symptoms. Thanks.

Conclusion of your status based on symptoms is incorrect, symptoms are more often misleading. If you feel worried you may want to test yourself for various STD's.HIV testing is warrented at 12 weeks.


Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi
