Symptoms After Post-Exposure Prophylaxis
Hoping someone out there might have some idea about the following case.

Approximately a year ago, I had a high-risk exposure in the developing world to HIV.  I was immediately placed on post-exposure prophylaxis consisting of TDF+3TC+LPV/r .  Since that time, I have received multiple HIV tests at 4 months, 5 months, and 7 months after exposure.  All have turned up negative.

Approximately 3 months after exposure, I developed a very strange illness primarily consisting of burning sensations and aches in my muscles, lymphodenopathy, nausea, fatigue, and weakness.  It seemed to have initially been triggered by a stomach infection.  This illness lasted around 6 weeks then disappeared.  Similar symptoms recurred 7-8 months after exposure, again simultaneous with another illness lasting 1 week, and again recently at 12 months after exposure alongside another illness lasting 2 weeks.

I realize that, unless I'm an extremely rare case, I'm HIV-, but these symptoms are still worrying.  My guess is that they might indicate a nascent auto-immune disorder triggered by the PEP.  Has anyone seen or heard of such a case?  Any ideas?
