Less than a year - Help
      #80395 - 01/10/04 04:59 AM

The information around is so confusing. I hope someone can clarify.
I had a possible exposure (the girl said she wasn't HIV after our unprotected sex but who knows). I never has any ARS symptoms - NONE until I started reading this forum. For the past 2 Months (Nov and Dec) I have developed slight leg pain and foot pain. I have sweated at night but think it is from the temp - not disease but thought I would ask anyways - do you wake up soaking wet head to tow or just slightly. I kept thinking I was dropping weight but the scale doesn't say so - starting to wonder if I am just looking hard at my body for the first time.

The more reputable pages like WEBMD show a burst of ARS symptoms that disappear after 3 weeks and then other signs appear much later? What is "much later" 6 months? A year? 20 Years? Lastly, is is even possible to have muscle and foot pain for a straight 2 months only 6 months post exposure?

Thanks a million

Much later is about 10 years with untreated HIV disease.

yor ankle pain probably has nothing to do with HIV. Symptoms like that do not pop up after only 2 months. Since you had unprotected sex though you might want to get a test just to be safe. Use a condom always.
