Worried & Stressed Out
      #176291 - 02/21/06 06:16 PM

I had a possbile exposure a few months ago. At the 3-4 week period I experienced " flu-like symptoms for about 14 days. After that was gone, I felt better for a while, but now I have this constant numbness in my arms and legs and the bottom of my feet constantly have a burning sensation that doesnt go away. If anyone has experineced this, can you please give me some insight on what it is and how can I make it go away. I cant sleep at night because of the discomfort, my doctor prescribed some medication for anxiety but it doesnt seem to be working. I know bottom line is to get tested, but I'm horribly afraid. I would appreciate some insight from someone who is or was experiencing this and what they did about. Thank you

If you are having problems GO SEE A DOCTOR again. No one can diagnose and help your condition over the internet.

regards from india

Symptoms should not be used as a tool to diagnose HIV. If you feel worried, you may want to get your symptoms evaluated from your health care provider. Consequently if you feel you may have put yourself at risk, get ested!


Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi
