I have swollen nodes in my groin, armpits, neck, behind my neck... After my exposure(unprotected vaginal and oral with prostitute) I started to searching the net about the symptoms and saw that lymph nodes are very common in HIV. So I started poking myself and looking for lymph nodes on myself and I found several nodes in my groin(those are still the same size) and one small under my jaw. That's it! I couldn't find any nodes in my armpits and neck, although I was looking for them very often. A half year after my exposure(I was still very anxious about HIV although I had 5 negative tests) nodes in my armpit started to swell and I felt one big under my left armpit and one smaller under my right armpit. Soon, I palpated several nodes in my neck and I have them till now. The one under my jaw is visible. Also I can palpate three big nodes in my left armpit and one of them is really big. So, definitely I had a generalized adenopaty and that's the main reason why I cannot move on with my life, those swollen lymph nodes. I suspect that I caused them to swell but I can never be sure about that. I had 7 negative tests out to one year and that should be enough but I am still worried. I also have/had many others symptoms like all kind of rashes, stomach pain for months, coughs for months, balanitis etc. but the worse are my swollen nodes which are visible and I feel very uncomfortable in society.
I know that swollen lymph nodes can be caused by a lot of different diseases but my CBC and other tests are very good, and yes I know that my HIV tests are negative too, but those nodes are very common in HIV positive people and I got them after unprotected sex with a risky person so doesn't that sound any suspicious to you??I know that they reduce in size in HIV positive people when they start to take meds. Also I know you will say now, 3 months is conclusive, you don't have HIV and that's ok, you have right to say that, but what can I do to reduce in size my nodes. I stopped to poke them but that didn't help very much, I can feel them without touching, I feel that my neck is swollen. I don't think I have a cancer, also my CBC is very good so I cannot find the reason why they swell. What can I do???
