Lymph Nodes
      #179108 - 03/09/06 08:15 PM

I guess besides my rash the other "symptom" that has sent me in to total WW land is that I have a lymph node in my neck that has been swollen for about 3 months, since I was sick in December... It isn't swollen to the extent that it was when I was sick but it is definitely still palpable. I have gone to the Dr,'s for it and she doesn't seem concerned, but said if it were still present in a few weeks she would biopsy it. I have 2 questions... Is this similar to lymph problems found in those with HIV? Also, would a lymph biopsy show any abnormalites that would point to HIV?
Thanks in advance,
K-19-VA

hi

regards from india

I believe you have conclusively tested negative for HIV(correct me if i am wrong). If that is the case then the symptoms you experience are not related to HIV.

I do not know what is causing them, however you may want to get those symptoms evaluated from your healthcare [provider.

Goodluck

I did test negative but then I started worrying about this night that I got drunk and blacked out and I am not sure if anything happened but it could have because I do not remember part of that night... That was only 23 days before I got my negative test... So if I did have unprotected sex and was infected I would not know...My room mate said she is pretty sure nothing happened because she was at the party but who knows??? Maybe she is just trying to ease my fears b/c she knows I am a WW... I realize I have OCD but I also realize it is possible for someone with OCD to contract HIV...

I suggest that you test at the 3 months mark, get your negative results, and move on. I've found out that you can really harm yourself if you let your mind roll. Better let the music roll .. Yes.. I'm a cowboy who loves Rock'n Roll.. what's wrong with that? :) Good Luck! and God Bless!

I would agree it is MORE to do with OCD rather than HIV. However if you doubt that you may have put yourself at risk, then you may want to test.

Goodluck
