yes i have heard of people who soon after they are infected, feel fatigued, and have some swelling of the nodes....when infected, hiv goes to work right away replicating and working on tearing down your immune system. thats where in some people they feel slightly fatigued, because while the virus works to wreck you, your body still tries to fight, all that goin on,tires your system.....nodes, swell for many reasons, most when there is infection of some sort, and when infected, yes reaction to that can be apparent through the nodes......keep in mind hiv infection affects everyone differently. And symptoms should NOT be used to diagnose HIV.

if you are tested positive, as time goes on, your health will decrease (in most infected people, with exception to slow/non-progressors) as the disease progresses

have you tested positive?

well if your "risK" was oral sex, as i stated in the other thread, put your mind at rest. I'd bet my life you'll come out negative. In todays world oral sex happens more than insertive vaginal/anal. If theres was much to worry about gettin HIV through Oral sex, the whole planet would be infected.

if the fear continues to control you, go talk to a counselor. Otherwise while you wait, get out and do something safe, fun for yourself to take your mind off of it.

The difference between testing positive and negative is:
When a person tests negative, they look back over the time they had to wait for results, and say "Wow, what a fool i was to waste that time" When a person tests Positive the look back over thier entire Life, and say "Wow, what a fool i was to waste THAT time" The moral of the story, time is precious regardless of the length of it, Live your life full of QUALITY time, and dont take it for granted. Good Luck & God Bless*
