Cough / Sweats
      #56703 - 01/29/03 01:39 PM

Ugh - I seem to be having everything in the book. I coughed through the entire night last night with a dry throat and was sweating profusely.

I had unprotected intercourse with a very promiscious woman, and now at exactly 3 weeks, this stuff is coming on hard. My nodes are all swollen.

Not sure what part of the world your in, but in the US, it's the season for colds and flu which it's very possible you have.

There are no specific symptoms for HIV. Your nodes swelling means your body is doing its job and dealing with whatever you picked up.

Stress can lead to a lot of what your saying is going on and you do sound worried about your encounter.

Have you gone to the doctor? If not, don't wait, go, but don't focus on the only possibility of this as HIV. There are hundreds of things it could be and as I said it's the time of year for coughs, dry throats and sweating at night.

If you are still worried about HIV, wait for 90 days and get tested, a 3 month test is considered conclusive.

Good Luck and let us know how it turns out.
