Hi doc.
Im 27 and i am freaking out, plz help me on this.
I had protected sex with sexworker about 4 weeks ago (to be precise 1 june 2014). Although i had unprotected oral sex, i was given blowjob. Night before sex, i had whisky & vodka and was totally drunk. The next day after having breakfast i didnt had anything and before having sex i took a pill kind of viagra pill which costed me less than 50 cents. After having sex i went for dinner and vomited just after 5 mins of having dinner. The vomiting continued for 4 days. Next morning my toungue was red kind of sores on it. Then on the next day i saw a pimple like thing (about the size of a dot made by pen) on the inner part of my pennis just where the foreskin ends on pulling down. The pimple like thing is painless and itch sometimes. Along with vomiting i had headache, pain in neck and lower body pain ( below knees). After 5-6 days i had mild fever of 98.8 F° which lasted a day. In between i also had tingling (burning sensation) pain in my fore arms which lasted for 4-5 days. Now after four weeks i am having a minor swollen gland in my right armpit which only i can feel and a swollen gum on right side where wisdom teeth extracts. I also experienced pain near appendix and now there is a light pain in groin area in the left side. Moreover i am having blurred vision and in the morning i think i am having more eye discharge.
All these symptoms occured one by one. First sores then vomiting followed by mild fever whic lasted a day.
Prior to sex i already had cough as i am a smoker. Please help me out in this. What are these symptoms are related to. I am too freaked out. I know i can only get sure for hiv after 3 months.
The tension is taking on my nerves.

... and that's exactly it ... tension! You had protected sex, you got drunk, now your regretting what you did! With unprotected oral okay your leaving yourself open to any other STD/STI but not HIV. With all those symtpoms though, go see a doctor, it could be just about anything since symptoms are NOT an accurate measure of HIV ... plus you took an unknown pill ... did you buy it off someone on the street? Who knows what effects that pill could have if it wasn't Viagra!!!

Go to a doctor, get some serious advice and ease up on the booze and pill popping, that could get you into a lot worse situation than HIV!

Oh and please note ... no one here is a "doc", so no need to address your comments as such, we are all just people who are living with, have encountered or know someone close with HIV! For a doctors opinion you will still have to go to a proper clinic!

anotherday ... in paradise!
daily ponder ... be the reason someone smiles today!
