hello can sum1 please help me over a month ago i noticed i was starting to get tired very easierly this got worse i started feeling very weak and was experiencing a hangover feeling everyday without drinking any alcohol :S i thought the feeling would go away but never did i also tested positive over a yr ago for genital herpez which are reacurring about twice a month heres a list of symtoms i have been experiencing
tiredness (after long hrs of sleping)
reacurring herpez (about twice a month)
flu like symtoms (just recent, could be due to weather change)
pins and needles in hands and feet
tingling in face and scalp
started to feel sick
i suffer with depression which has recently got server i had the implant incerted abt a month ago (after i gt these symtoms so dont thnk it could be due to that although they have got alot worse) but the depression worsening could be due to the implant .
i have had a few blood test's for anemia, blood count and diabetes, all came back normal.
i am extremly worried about all my symtoms incase i have something really wrong with me i have been looking up symtoms online and i have symtoms of hiv and a brain tumour (probly wasnt the best idea to check symtoms on google) i got tested for hiv about 4 months ago and whilst i was waiting for my results (which came back negative) i managed to convince myself i had the virus.....i really do not want to put myself through that again and really need peace of mind for what ele these symtoms could be!.......someone help!
HIV has no specific systems. Symptoms or lack of will never tell you your status. The only way to know your status if you have had an exposure is by testing. You can test if you had an exposure 3 months post exposure for a conclusive result.
thank you so much for your comments, but i did put myself at risk after the test i had unrotected sex with someone i was seeing only once. i know the risk levels are quite low and that is even if he was a carrier. its just all the symtoms i am getting, im freeking myself out!
Well i didnt have other symptoms. My pins and needles started 2 weeks after the risk and lasted 8 weeks. Plus become painful last to weeks. Then i went my gp and my doctor giving me anti alergy tablet and withing the week all gone. How ever i done hiv test after 12 weeks and came negative
no i have an appointment tomorrow morning do you know how accurate the hour test's are? becuase i dont want to wait 2 weeks for my results but a nurse told me on the hour test's you can have false positives :s
no i really dont, when i think about it i think they couldnt have it they sseem clean and most partners i have had have either been protected or unprotected with people i think will not have STI's its just the symptoms that are making me so paranoid! im starting to think thoughts about living with hiv cause im starting to convince myself its awful i really hope i am ok i will let you knw of my outcome, thank you for youur support :)
hi teak even though i have all these symptoms? and have ad unprotected sex? if you dont mind me asking i hope you dont think im inconsiderate and ignorant to your feelings but what is your story? how did you cme nto contact? and did you have symptoms?
