LOW platelet and joint pain
      #174771 - 02/12/06 10:28 PM

I am 32 male from toronto. I have been diagnosed to low platetlet in 1997 and range is 45 to 95. It goes up and down but mostly i am within this range. I was told by my bood specialist that ITP. They don't know the cause of it. Well, same time i had joint pain. it last for 3 weeks. I did my HIV test in 1997, 1998 and 2000. Came negative. In July 2002 i was exposed to Gonorrhea from oral sex and treated by antibiotic. while i was on the medication My platelet went down to very low and it was count 7000. Any ways, 6 months later I did my HIV test and came negative. Always i had a safe sex. After then I was doing fine till 2005. In July 2005 I went to india and got a mosquitoes bite on my left upper thigh and shorly 2 weeks later i had ongiong diarrhea and treated by antibiotic. I also treated by antifangal but rash from mosquitoes bite still there. When everything were fine except the rash on my thigh all of the sudden I started having joint pain. Sometime i have pain on my neck, arim pit and close to my groin where limph nodes are. Pain comes and goes. Limph nodes are seem to be fine. They are not swealling. I do not have any fever or cough, night sweat.

Since I have low platelet and joint pain what conclusion can you draw for me. Do you think it is a HIV symptoms? People who have low platelet and HIV NEGATIVE can call as ITP?

Thank you for your time and looking forward to hear from you.

Mosquito bite don't transmit HIV.
