I was in Uganda a few months back and went out and had a bit too much fun with the locals and wound up hooking up. In a lapse of good judgment that seems to always follow after a good night on the town I found myself with no condom on and a new worry. At three month mark I had a negative Test by ICMA and one by RNA detection. I had another negative test at four months. I am now at five months and am still having enlarged lymph nodes and coated tongue that looks like it has been snow covered in the morning. I also have what looks like candidiasus erythematous on my soft palate and have from about a month after my trip. It seems to be finally going away only after I started fluconazole a week ago. I have had recurrent canker sores numerous times since I came home. I want to know if my tests could still be negative since my exposure would be a non b clade. My mind is going crazy and heading down some crazy paths and I clearly need mental health counseling but hope that is it and not an HIV specialist. I am again running around on the other side of the world and unable to test at six months and want to know if I can relax. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
