Please evaluate my situation- Scared
      #273072 - 07/17/13 09:26 PM

I had protected sex ( for 30sec- no ejaculation) and unprotected Oral ( no ejaculation) 47 days ago.
I got sick the next day- nausea,sore throat,dizziness and they lasted for a week- I was very anxious that whole week thinking that I am going to die.
14 th day- I started having sore throat, shortness of breath and it lasted for 2 weeks
21st day- I started having white tongue, nausea, dizziness, occasional shortness of breath, joint pains - today is my 47th day and I still have the those symptoms.
I am scared and all these symptoms looks like HIV symptoms.
I took a PCR RNA qualitative test on day 24 and DNA RT-PCR (ICMA) test on day 42(6 weeks) both are non reactive- can I consider them as accurate.

I also took hsv1 and hsv2, gonnorhea and other STD tests at day 42 and all are neg. Are all my symptoms are because of anxiety?
Do I need to wait and test again at 12 week mark

Thanks for the reply.

You've been told by very very sensitive tests that can pick up unbelievably small traces of HIV as low as 1 part per million and yet you still don't believe it. Wow. (I mean that as a I am amazed by the human psyche)

To answer your questions. Yes the symptoms you are experiencing sound like they are anxiety related. No you don't need to test any more unless you have a thing for the nurse or a needle fetish. Yes you are HIV negative. And yes the tests and the results are as accurate as you can get. You are HIV negative. Time to move on or seek out professional mental health services to help you move on.
