ARS at 8+ Weeks
      #27337 - 01/24/02 02:45 PM

I'm sure I'm being paranoid but...8 weeks after my suspected exposure, I started experiencing...diarrhea...not severe, just looser than normal. At the same time, I started taking medication for high blood pressure that could be causing it but since I'm experiencing such anxiety about this experience, I'm automatically linking the diarrhea to ARS.

Doesn't ARS usually occur much earlier than 8 weeks after possible exposure? Also, I have no other symptoms...do symptoms usually occur in groups or might a person experience only one symptom??

Thanks!!

Another Hopeful Worried Well...

Chill out! ARS genarally always occurs up to four weeks from what I have read. AT most to feel more assured, probably six, but six weeks is my own opinion. By the way, don't know who posted it, but rice is suppose to be good for the squirts. Relax, with that being the only symptom, I'd bet it is safe to say...you are out of the woods. To be assured get tested at six months, not before. The reason is that you will more than likely test negative before that time, but from my own experience...you won't feel any better because you will be thinking "what if". Good luck to you and hope this has been helpful!
