At age 20 I had vaginal sex with a 20 year old white woman who seemed clean. I had unprotected sex with her about 6 times. Around the time I developed chronic pressure urticaria, dry eyebrows, knee joint pain and inflammation. Over the years I seem to be more sick than in the past. I am now 26 and have developed swollen wrist joints, loss of hand mobility, vitiligo (minor), hand tremors, fatigue!! I don't get swollen lymph nodes or diarrhea or night sweats. I am starting a new relationship and for some reason am freaking out about being exposed to HIV years ago. That was my only sexual experience. I also have a mildly low ANA. Does that go up with HIV? I havld a cc with differential and everything seemed normal. I know I need to get tested for anxiety purposes but would like your opinion first. Thanks so much for all you do for others and me. Take care
