      #25909 - 12/22/01 04:58 AM

I had swollen painfull testicle(left one) One month after exposure lsted 2 months Dr Diagnosed it as epididymitis(very common) Painful burning skin on shoulders and back at 3 months for 1.5 weeks and loose stools at same time. Have folicitis like 6 lessions mainly on arms and chest. ALL i Mean all my lymphnodes burn and hurt but not swollen. I had two elisa antibody tests done at 3.5 months and also had Girlfriend take test all came back neg. The woman i was sleeping with for about a year also took test when at 3 months.(she hasn't been with any one but me since july 2000) I still am sure i have hiv so i had Woman take test at 4.5 months this time for HIV1 and 2
Which also came back neg.Tests i have had done are

comprehensive metabolic panel
CT scan of abdomen and pelvis
ultrasound of testicles
exray of clavicles
2 HIV tests
Hepetitis A,B,C
Thyroid testing
Liver function tests

All normal except i have fatty liver.
Now my salivary glands, jaw line,lymphnodes, and throat hurt, also i have a ulcer on my tounge for 5 days.

I have been to my primary care Physician 6-7 times
emergancy med clinic 3 times
new DR.once who said "i don't think you have HIV but if you do i know a guys who deals only with AIDS patients, you'll do great with him."
i have been to the dentists twice
an ear nose and throat specialist once and i have an appointment with a gland specialest for my salivarg glands and lymphnodes.

My primary dr. says i am fine cause i have had too much test done to not have shown something even a little abnormal. This sucks!!! But on the lighter side, If Idont have HIV then theres a good chance that INFECTED my not have it either despite having such a shitty 3 months. Maybe Stressin the body and mind constantly for so long does really have profound effects.
I mean the phrase "woried sick" did come from somewhere.

your symptoms don't match up with ars, nor does the timing. Plus the fact that you had a negative result. If your lymphnodes were painful then they would be swollen since pain in the nodes is a sign of them growing. You do not have hiv...congratulations.
infected on the other hand has very consitent symptoms and timing which directly relate to ars. I'm not saying that it is that for sure...but it definately would not surprise me. You on the other hand do not have it, and the jury is still out on INFECTED.
