Hey guys,
I am in need of help. In july last year I had unprotected sex with a girl, who told me afterwards she had had unprotected sex before. After 2 weeks I had a couple of severe nightsweats, sore joints, sore throat and bad oral thrush (diagnosed by doctor). After about 3/4 weeks I got red macupapular lesions over shoulders, thighs and chest that lasted until about 6 months. After about 11/12 weeks I had a severe sore throat and difficulty swallowing that lasted for 2 months! Also, which is the most worrying after 12 weeks I had red rashes on ankles and my right ankle became swollen, and still is swollen! I have also had numerous problems with ulcers and visual floaters. Also, which is depressing me the most my hair has been falling out since about 13 weeks after exposure. I tested negative after 12 weeks 5 days, and am gonna get tested again soon ( which will be 7+ months), but am sure I am sure I am positive. Is there any way I don't have HIV? The swollen ankle is really worrying me. Thank you so much for your compassion and advice.

if you tested negative at 12 weeks, then that test would have been conclusive to be negative. i think alot of times our body tends to shut down when we are so stressed out that we are unable to deal with the real issues at hand.......... the fear of hiv. i made a comment here before about trusting people's word to be gold................ never trust unless you know for sure.
let us know how you are doing.
prayers always

It is possible you don't have HIV. The "symptoms" of HIV can go along with alot of different things and are not specific to HIV.Thats why they are always saying don't go by the symptoms. Have you seen a doctor to see what else it could be effecting your health?

I think the only thing that is going to convince you that your neg is going to a clinic for a clinical test. I presume you are using some home test and you are not trusting in its accuracy. Go to the master and let them tell you to your face. I for one am positive and I am very glad I never experienced even one of your manifistations. I dont think you can continue at this pace forever..

All my best to you and your search for the truth..

Hey, thanks for responses. Doctor has ruled out diabetes and thyroid problems as I was tested for both. This has made me more worried, what else could it be?

Ian, what has your doctor told you about your health and what kind of doctor is he/she?

Do a google search on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome symptoms. I am no doc, but this might shed some light on the situation. There are other illnesses out there besides HIV. If you test neg, you do not have HIV.

It could be stress. Go get tested for your own peace of mind.
I understand your fear because I've been there, but the only way to know for sure is to have the test done. Good Luck.

It could be stress. I understand your fear because I've been there. Go get tested for your own peace of mind. I had all the symptoms also and I tested negative at 13 weeks, so please, don't make my mistake diagnosing yourself by the symptoms.
Good Luck.

Stress can get you every time. There may also be some other issue but HIV does not sound like one of them. A test at 12 weeks is conclusive enough. I think you hearing her say she has had unprotected sex before is defenitly a stress builder.
