Is it still possible?
      #33420 - 04/30/02 04:50 PM

I had unprotected sex with a prostitute on Oct 11, 2001. I was extremely drunk, and about two weeks after I had a burning sensation on/in my pecker. I went to a regular doctor, and a urologist, they both could find no infection. I had HIV test's at 6, 9, 11, 12, 13 and a PCR at 16.5 weeks (I do not know what kind of PCR) all neagative. I still feel like crap, and my toungue is still white on the lateral lines. I wish I could find out what is going on, however I can not work, and my head is absolulty killing me. I guess I have HIV and they just can not pick up on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It seems extremely unlikely thet you're infected with HIV. your repetitive negative EIA results up to 3 months (considered accurate) and negative (whichever) pcr really seem to exclude HIV. Burning sensation in your private parts (in absence of mucosal ulcers) isn't reported to be a hiv specific finding, to be exact it isn't reported to be a finding at all in recently or chronically infected persons. Have you had your tongue evaluated by a dentist-ent-oral surgeon? Try to be calm, this really seems to be a classic case of HIV-related freaking out (i know it first hand, i'm the patient zero ;-)).
If your concerns continue or your healthcare provider seems to find something HIV related consider testing at 6 months but in the meanwhile try to breathe free, you are very likely not HIV infected.
As sex workers are a risk category and you indeeed had unprotected sex consider testing for other systemic STIs such as HEP-B or syphilis. Other topical STIs (chlamydia, gonorrhea, HPV, mycoplasma infections, yeast infections, non gonococcal urethritis etc) have been excluded by your doc via tests or only objective examination?
Keep us informed, hope this helps and remember, you are negative.
