You are not being neglected, we are not all here 24/7...we answer questions as fast as we can, plus Teak already provided you with an accurate assessment.

It is physiologically IMPOSSIBLE to get HIV in the manner you describe.  Whatever your symptoms are, they are not related to HIV.  Have you been diagnosed with PN, or are you self diagnosing over the internet?

For your info, PN occurs late in HIV infection, not in new, acute HIV infection.  You did NOT have a risk, do NOT have HIV, and no testing is needed.  If you ARE truly experiencing PN, then you need to be under the care of a doctor to figure out why, as many different medical conditions will cause it.

I would suggest some professional help, as it is obvious that you're anxiety is through the roof.  Stay off the computer, as searching the internet will only fuel your anxiety.

What are you not understanding???  You did NOT have an HIV risk...so to continue to "research" this is ONLY anxiety motivated.

"...I will stop surfing the internet and will go see my G.P"

What happened to that?


One more time....you do NOT have an HIV concern...and you CANNOT diagnose yourself as having peripheral neuropathy over the internet, period.

Enough is enough...please move on.
