Sweating all the time
      #191887 - 05/17/06 06:25 PM

I have been following the forum for a couple months now. thanks to A2H, Gman, and other who respond to worried well questions. My question to u is i went for a standard elisa test at my ASO here in CT after a possible exposure with a call girl in Atlantic City (i know stupid stupid!!) and it came out negative. Can i be comfortable with this result if I tested at 20 weeks post exposure? I will promise to use condoms from now on!! I want to feel ok with this but my problem is i am sweating constantly throughout the day and the weather here hasnt been exactly "warm." Its been about 50 degrees or raining off and on....... At my ASO i was told this could be a symptom of seroconversion but since i tested negative beyond the 3 month guideline i should have nothing to worry about and if i feel uncomfortable to come back and test at the 6 month mark to make sure..... i really don't get it... why not test again now that I have these symptoms?

Well you can listen to us and we can tell you that you are -ve at 20 weeks. But if in your mind tells you otherwise, go and test at 6 months. It's your life, do what you feel will get your fear to go away.. Symptoms do not define hiv. Have you talked with your doctor about your sweating?

Best

could you be comfortable with MY test results?....i'll trade ya!!!

i know damn well what id do, if i had a 13 week negative.....you can bet your ass, it wouldnt have anything to do with a specialist, a handful of pills, blood transfusions, hospital stays, setting up a will, etc.

if you are having "symptoms"...go to a doctor (not an ASO or HIV doc)....and talk to them about everything EXCEPT HIV this time, if they find nothing wrong with you, physically.....go talk to a counselor...( a 20 week test is more than conclusive, you DO NOT have hiv)
