I am in the same boat - I engaged in a risk activity but tested negative 4 weeks after. I know I don't have it, but, like you, attribute everything on my body to having HIV. It is worse for me because when I stop thinking I have it, my girlfriend will have a rash or a mark and it starts all over for me.
It seems that when I am really busy (work, friends, etc) I tend to forget about it - it is when I have downtime that I begin to run it back through my head.
I think another test would be good for me - I know 4 weeks is 90%, but if I could hear it again, I think it would be beneficial.
You guys aren't qualified to be your own doctor! There's a reason MDs go to school for 10+ years, and even then they still need to go to another doctor for their health concerns.
Association of 'symptoms' with HIV is the most common fallacy (and contributor to anxiety) on the HIV forums. I intend to elaborate on why this is a waste of time in my next journal.
All of us are in the same boat...
Joggen... you have been here for a long time..In you experience has anyone come to this site with anxiety over HIV and then came back after 3 months to say they tested positive?
