Hello Doctor, I hope that this gets through to you as I have not been able to find any threads with a similar list of symptoms to my own within a certain timeframe. I am a 29 yr old hetero male. I visited a Massage Parlour back on May/06, and had protected sex with a young girl working there. She used her own condom, and used a lubricant (oil/water?) on me in order to reduce friction. However I before entering the massage parlour I took off a hang nail on my index finger on my right hand which was the same hand that I used to finger her with on two occassions that lasted for approx 15 seconds ea - I'm assuming that this would be considered an open cut - That being said, the first time I fingered her, she was standing, and I was on the bed, so I had my hand inside of her (Vertically) for the entire 15 seconds, and the second time I moved my hand back and forth for approx 15 seconds, then licked my hand.
Her HIV Status is unknown though after confronting her a few months later she tells me that she doesn't have HIV.
What worries my isn't my exposure that I know is low risk, as much as it is the symptoms which I have gotten, and are still going through, along with the timelines associated with them. Please keep reading.
Approx 14 days after my exposure I had returned from vacation - Dom. Rep - and had a low grade fever of 102 for two days. During that same time I had severe night sweats which lasted approx 4-5 days - they went away then the night sweats came back 2 days later lasting for another few days with no fever (I also experienced itching on my back). Approx 19 days after this exposure - got HIV blood test - result - NEG, and felt slightly releived, prepared to get another test at 9 weeks. But after a few weeks (approx june 26) I started to get headaches, and a sore throat that went away after two weeks - though the headaches persisted. I would get slight pains in my joints, and had slightly swollen lymph nodes under my chin. Approx 2 - 3 weeks after that got a really bad sore throat that still persists today, still have slight headaches, and am now getting a slight rash on my torso, and the night sweats are coming back - have had them for the past 2 nights.
Now I do have acid reflux (but take nexium), and have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea. I am also under a lot of stress at work, and am not in a very good relationship with my common law wife. That being said, I did have unprotected sex with her within this timeframe, and she is also getting sick - cold, flu symptoms.
So I AM WORRIED SICK. And though everyone is telling me to stop dwelling on the negative, I can't stop thinking about what I may have done to my wife, and the loss that my infant daughter may go through if I am infact HIV +. Please help me. What do you think???
