8 weeks after possible exposure felt pain in the abdominal area and groin accompanied by general feeling of ilness, weight loss of 15 lbs, and pain behind neck around hair line along with a feeling of paranoia. No fever or diareha
This lasted 3 months and then was followed by a second onset of symptoms
Burning tounge continues for 2 months
Light night sweats 2 weeks
Numbness and tingling in right hand with a feeling of being off balance and in space 2 weeks
Now 9 mos after possible exposure

abdominal pain
skin problems very itchy areas that when scratched will scab up and then heal
Appreciate any help

Probably not, symptoms are 2-4 weeks after exposure, not 9 months. Get tested though, its easy and will tell you that you are not positive! Enjoy life!

Lot of people have had same symptoms and been negative. Testing is only way to know.

Get tested and relax
