Yes, I had read about joint and muscle pains which I attributed to this. It started at 65 1/2 weeks. First it was just pain in my wrist.(thought maybe carpal from working on comp at work). Then other wrist. eventually felt like arthritis in toes, wrist, and fingers. Then i started getting weird sensations(like the one described in neuropathy) in about every joint in my body but they would be brief sensations.(it was constant like in my toes, fingers and wrist) Then got these akward muscle pains(kinda like spasms) all over my body. They would be very short go away, and i would start feeling elswhere on my body. Anyways this lasedt 3-4 weeks. Look, i know this isnt a commen symptom of HIV but it was wierd enough to make me worry. Im 21 yrs old and never had history of arthritis. Of course i had many other symptoms on the list but i wont go into them. Im pretty sure based on my negative tests that it has nothing to do with HIV. if its not hiv then im pissed at my body for manifesting symptoms like this. (LOL) a I would not even have been worried in this window period if it wasnt for the symptoms. I was extremely stressed for the first 3 months, could this have anything to do with this? anyways, i always though of myself as psychologically stable and even laughed at the fact that people were worried about symptoms despite negative test. NOw i know exactly what there talking about. This is our health and it's only natural that we worry. anyways good luck people.
