tested neg - but ARS was real
      #25037 - 11/27/01 08:21 PM

Thanks to everyone on this forum, you have helped me through one of the toughest times in my life. I just tested hiv negative 13 weeks after exposure. I will proabably go back for a 6 month test just to be sure.

Let me extend some hope to those of you who experienced ARS-like symptoms. I had them, and they were real, not in my head. But as it turns out, it was not HIV, (unless I test positive on my 6 month test, which is unlikely but possible).

So I am now giving more thought to the other viruses that cause ARS-like symptoms. It might just have been a flu, but it could have been one of the other STD's too. My next step is to have a blood test to screen out some other viruses.

But compared to hiv, whatever virus I may have picked up is going to be a piece of cake to deal with. So everyone who had symptoms, there is hope! You do not have to worry yourselves to death, if I'm negative, you have a good chance too!

Best wishes to all, and thank you again for the support and information. I really appreciate this forum, thank you The Body!

worried 22yo . why are you so obsessed with proving you aren't crazy? truth be told nobody really cares if you are or not. we all hope you figure out what may be wrong with you but realise it is not hiv.

GRRR....... I am going nuts because of low risk exposure.. "FINGERING"

there was no wounds but I'm very worried.. I was nearly accepted I am HIV- but I started to show symptoms.. neck pain, sore throath and today flu started..my troath is bad for 2 weeks..I hope these things caused by another thing because everymorning I have bath and go outside without drying my hair and outside is O`C

I am still very worried and anxious :~(
