A negative result at 5 months is 99.9% conclusive...I would say 100%...but there is no way of knowing that. I'm pretty sure you do not fall in that .1% Common symptoms of HSV-2 along with lesions are swollen glands, headache, muscle ache, and fever. Put the idea of HIV aside for a minute and think about this:

Could your weight loss be due to the fact that you may be eating less because your mouth is dry and it may be painful/uncomfortable to swallow...or maybe you have been eating less because of anxiety?

Night sweats are due to fever breaking in the middle of the night (fever from HSV-2)...could this be the reason for your night sweats?

Are you constantly checking the node to see if it is still enlarged? I have the same problem...stop touching it...it should go down in about 6 weeks...if it gets bigger after 6 weeks talk to your doctor...if it gets smaller but still hasn't disappeared wait another 6 weeks.

My point is you can take all of these symptoms, put them together, and convince yourself that you have HIV...but you don't...the test said so.

Don't worry...move on with your life!

you know changing your user name from gettingmymessages to uniden is down right rude, really makes you lose any credibility to your story.
you keep changing names, seems like your fishing for a different answer.
if people begin to ignore you and your questions, its because they feel deceived.......
