PLEASE PLEASE RESPOND..I NEED HELP BAD!!
      #63200 - 04/07/03 05:20 PM

A few weeks after an unprotected vaginal sex encounter I experienced what I thought was classic ARS. The symptoms included mouth ulcers, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes, loss of 15lbs, full body rash with what looked like ance, thrush, sore throat,headaches, severe depression(suicidal thoughts) etc... I tested negative on Elisa at 4,5,6,7,8.5 months and negative on a PCR. To this day I have noticed abnormal changes in my body which include gum problems(gingivitis,receding gums), fat redistribution(increase in stomach fat and buttocks fat), loss of muscle tone and headaches. The only thing I have tested positive for is mono(ebv) which was 4 months ago. Does anyone have any insight??I've done everything in my power to get to the root of this problem. My doc told me to continue testing for HIV out to 12 months..I'm at the end of my rope ..Has anyone experience anything simuliar or give me hope?

Redistribution of fat is a side effect of medication, so unless you are already on antiretrovirals then that has nothing to do with HIV. None of your symptoms have anything to do with HIV because you tested negative over a conclusive window period of 3 months SEVERAL more times than you needed and a PCR to boot. You don't have HIV.

Relax....take a deep breath...YOU DO NOT HAVE HIV....Im a x-worried well...and stress and depression and worry can really put a tole on your body....and make you feel "ILL"...
after 3 mths..6 mths. after your incident and you tested negative each time "YOU ARE FINE"..."YOU ARE HEALTHY"....go talk to your doctor about your depression...my doctor put me on Prozac and Im tellin ya..what a difference I feel great and so can you...also what I suggest is for you to go seek another doctors oppinion. I have never heard of a doctor saying you should get tested after 12 mth. Never heard of such a thing....GET A SECOND OPINION!!!!!!!! Take Care and feel some relief... Ex-Worried Well

Hi,
I'm an x-worried well for HIV but I did get Herpes2.
I tested negative at 3 months and 6 months and I had the opportunity to test again at 11.5 months and guess what - I am still negative. I believe my results but since I was having other tests done, I figured - eh, why not throw in an HIV test. Even though I knew I was negative, the stress came back - I will not test again. It is stupid - I wasted my money and time on that last test for no reason.

You are negative, you will not seroconvert but you are picking up the testing habit which gets hard to break and then you become a worried well.

You are negative!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The rest is up to you - believe it or not.
