went to the doctor last week for an hiv test. If infected its been over 10 years of living in ignorance. I think i may be experiencing some symptoms. I have twitching going on in my eye, my face tingles and some numbness around my lips? I know these things sound random but I am scared out of my mind. Has anyone experienced facial pain? I know if I'm positive my body has been getting it's but kicked without proper attention. I can use any positive reinforcment. really really scared

i wouldnt jump the gun of self conclusion, i CAN tell YOU that something as simple as a severe folic acid deficiancy, rendered me in escrutiating pain, and unable to walk.... they fixed that with a triple blood transfusion, and a lifetime script for folic acid.....

now, im NOT saying that is your problem, just trying to make a point, that one cant go by symptoms. The human body operates on a BALANCE, and ANYTHING that takes it out of balance, will render a bodily response resulting in a symptom of some sort.... having said that, get tested, and close the door on your HIV fears, but leave the door open to something other than, until you find out what is causing your grief. i can also tell you, PROGRESSIVE HIV, left untreated for 10 YEARS, will render more than just the symptoms you say you are experiencing....personally, it put me in the end stages in a 4 mo. long coma....good luck!

Thinking about meeting someone from this site? Read my profile before you do.
