Just wanted to share this..

I've been an HIV worrier for over 2 months now since I started displaying weird ongoing symptoms. All my exposures were over 5 years ago. Tested neg 2 times last month on ELISA at different labs, plus my husband also tested neg. I'm thinking maybe to have a PCR as well just for peace of mind. Anyways, that's not what I wanted to say. After neg tests I started researching about other causes of my symptoms, and guess what - there are loads of other diseases to be concerned about with same symptoms! Main one that I am concerned about is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome- causes swollen lymph nodes (WW favorite!), severe fatigue, joint and muscle pain, memory problems, sore throat - all HIV-like! Some more diseases that doctor suggested are: lupus, fibro, mycoplasmosis, chlamydia. I'm now gonna test for all of those. I guess my point is - don't get so focused on HIV only, there are REALLY loads of other things with similar symptoms.
