Groin Nodes Please Help
      #27631 - 01/30/02 08:13 PM

Have terrible pain in my groin My pain is below my belly button center and both sides. I thought your groin nodes were along the crease where your leg meets your torso,but my pain is above that. Are there nodes in this area. The pain is like a stich or clamp pinching my skin almost like a painful itch. Is this typical of the pain associated with ARS And also I have had it for 4 months starting 8 weeks after possible exposure. My other symptoms are canker sores in my mouth, a very mild rash on my upper chest that you almost have to look hard to see but its there, 1 week of night sweats, very tired and fatigued, wierd feeling in other areas of my body like Im being pinched or stiched and I also had a numbness and tingling in my hands for 1 week that went away.
Please Help
Thanks

You are correct, your nodes are below where you describe. Besides, the manner in which you describe the discomfort is inconsistent with an HIV symptom in that regard.

Many of your other symptoms that you describe are possible signs of, among other things, stress. Even the ones that you think are visible (rash, etc). For peace of mind, you should just take initiative and get a test. Just think, in a matter of a few days you will be able to relax and sleep soundly and begin to put this worry behind you, and forgive yourself.

Every one of the symptoms you are experiencing are imaginative. Not one is associated with HIV. So in practical terms, call the doctor, get some anti-anxiety medicine, and move on---You are not infected.
