26 yo gay W M. Hi, 3 weeks ago I had a condom bust while having receptive anal sex with a partner that claimed he was HIV negative. I was tested July 10, 2012 and again today with negative results by the oral swab method. My question stems from some of my current symptoms. Over the last two days, I have had loose, yellow stools and some yellow diarrhea. My body temp at the doc today was 99.5. I have had a rash over my antecubetal fossa. The doc ran a CBC and BMP. Everything was normal except my WBC were slightly low at 4.6. I recently was fishing in florida before this started. However, are these symptoms/findings consistent with acute HIV infection? My doc was old school and admitted he was not extremely knowledgeable about HIV infection. Thanks.
If that ever happens to you, get PEP dude within 72 hours.
Symptoms can be anything; They mean nothing.
In a few days you could go get a p24 test, and get a pretty good idea what's going on. Then follow up at 3 months with the typical antibody.
I'm sending you good vibes, man. I hope you feel better soon.
