Would you be satisfied?

Low risk exposure (HJ) somehow led to a doctor diagnosed case of NGU. After dealing with this for over 3 months, started to get some other, more concerning symptoms: generalized node swelling, stiff neck, upper left abdominal discomfort (spleen?).

Again, these additional symptoms didn't show up until around the 90 day mark.

Have taken multiple Oraquick home tests since (through week 25) - all negative. Due to some conflicting info online about the reliability of Oraquick, I also took 3 Home Access blood collection tests (FDA approved) at weeks 20, 22, and 24. Also all negative.

Symptoms continue to persist though. Pain in upper abdominal LUQ is the most concerning. Left shoulder hurts as well.

Does any of this sound potentially HIV related?

My concern is that there had to be infected fluid present during the HJ, hence the NGU. And couldn't the presence of NGU in the source (of the infected fluid) cause a high viral load if also infected with HIV?

I can't come up with any other explanation for my symptoms, nor their "coincidental" timing.

Would you be satisfied with the negative results I have received, even with the continuation of my symptoms?
