Oral Complications. Please Help
      07/24/12 10:02 AM

Basically what I want to know is if oral complications are symptoms of acute HIV or more symptoms of later stages. I have been having complications in my mouth and I am a bit scared. Noticing bumps, and etc which could possible be normal anyways. My tounge appears to be whiter towards the base and bumpy. My last encounter with a partner of unkown status was March 11th if i recall correctly. I knew the girl as she was sort of a friend. I wore a condom but did perform oral on her. I would consider her low risk but you never know i guess. I ended up getting back together with my ex whom I dated for 3 years. She is not hiv positive. So besides the low risk encounter I just mentioned, my girlfriend has been my only sexual partner besides that since then. I was tested 3 months after my encounter in march and it was negative, but i was paranoid and went and re tested probably 9 days later and that was also negative. I am closing in on 5 months since that encounter in march but i have been having oral complications and I seem to find something new in my mouth everyday it seems like. I know that it's unlikely to be HIV related especially since i don't have symptoms like fever, vomiting, swollen lympnodes, but I am a bit scared. Should I go ahead and re test?? and are things like oral thrush,ulcers and other mouth conditions always linked to hiv?? or can they be caused by other illnesses. I am confused and lost. Please help.
