Also have muscle twitching all over my body. can u give me any help am so scared of doing a test. have been scared since the beginning of this year i have had series of anxiety..any help plsss

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.
Thank you I really appreciate. i self diagnosed myself... ,My flat mate want to through me out of the house...I will stop surfing the internet and will go see my G.P I was just scared cos some people say HIV is linked to neuropathy (wikipedia was the source) at the early stage although i had flulike symptoms in december and now am feeling burning sensation on my legs. I also had no risk but was just scared thank you am greatful..
