Hi is there anybody here who has HIV or can help me please. I had an oral exposure a couple of years ago, didn't test as it was a one off and from what I understand it isn't a transmission method. I have read up on symptoms and stuff and did have what I thought were textbook symptoms but ignored it, for one thing I thought they started too early. I started feeling odd pains in my armpits after 4 days which I am sure is too early. I then at 10 days got swollen armpits and neck glands, an excruciating testicular pain, a pink rash on my arms and inside elbow, extreme diarrhea and fatigue, basically was like flu, was in bed for about 6 days, I also had purple dot on my hand and near my lip. I tested for mono at the doctors and it was negative. Anyway this was about 2 years ago, I have consistently had discomfort in my arms and groin ever since, it will go away then come back, I have no swelling that I know of but the pain over the last few days has gotten worse. I just want to talk with somebody please I know you will say no risk but I am losing my mind here, I am so scared and feel so alone and I can't cope anymore. Has anybody here got HIV, is this arm and groin pain indicative of HIV? Would I have AIDS within 2 years of contracting HIV. I am not hear to argue could somebody please talk to me if you have the time, thank you so much.
