So your symptoms point ONLY to HIV.

The news is now telling us that Lyme disease is widely under diagnosed. Symptoms include a flu like illness and a rash. Same symptoms as HIV....

SO if you have tested negative for HIV, then you may very well want to look into this.

Kicker,Thank you ever so much for your input. I'm so sorry you missed my point, but somehow that doesn't surprise me. Keep on stepping on other's people posts. You do it so well.

I've often told people to talk to their doctors about other options that may be causing them to feel unwell. Most will come back and tell me that it's impossible for it to be something other than HIV.

I still believe much of what we see posted from Worried Wells with multiple negative test results or non-risk exposures on this board stems more from mental health issues. Easy enough to spot. Some people will say for instance...OH it can't be lyme disease because it's not passed by sex and I've never been bitten by a tick. You know, someone that discounts an option without considering something like....for instance.....many people don't realize they may have had a tick bite or they don't connect a funny rash 5 years ago with symptoms they experience today....so yeah, still a LOT of mental health issues pop up on here.
