I am a 22 y/o female. I had unprotected encounters over years, 1st was 8 years ago. Im still in contct with all but 1 of men, and most now have children. I'm hoping it's encouraging of their HIV status. Had possible exposure at a nail salon. - Cuticle torn, bleeding etc. Don't know if tools were steralized, or if techs hands were intacked. 1.) would this in fact be considered a risk by you? I started having unexplained symptoms- : Low platelet (100 000), fatigue, recurring mouth lesions, swollen salivary glands(dentist ?'d HIV),white bumps on gums, diarrhea for 2 weeks, 18lbs weight loss, recurring yeast rash under skin fold(over weight), sudden acne flare, dry mouth, itchy boil-like pimples around hair follicles and occasion "floaters".
I tested for HIV in October. This was outside the 3 month period for any sexual encounters; only 9 weeks from nail experience.:NEGATIVE. I am still concerned. My NP is of little help. She doesn't want to test me again, nor is she interested in finding a cause for my symptoms. I live in small community, so the nearest hospital sends a tech to our local doctors office who collects blood here, takes it back to that hospital who then sends it off to another hospital 2 hours away for HIV testing.I am married and have a 2 year old baby girl, the unfortunate part is that somehow, my OBS clinic "failed to complete HIV testing during prenatal testing". Just found this out a short time ago. hubby has had night sweats.Now I'm also fretting about my beautiful baby. 2.) Do you think my community situation makes it more likely for a blood mixup within the labs?? 3.) Do u think that my symptoms look like HIV? -new, or advanced? 4.) Is it possible my tests were wrong, that I am infected & the test missed it? - can this happen in new AND advanced HIV infection? how sick would be considered "advanced" enough to fool an HIV test? 5.) Would a 2y/o old have showed symptoms by now, if infected at birth and receiving no treatment? PLEASE HELP
