11 months ago I received a handjob from a guy that was very likely HIV+. Some anal fluids were present on his hand during the handjob. Ever since I experienced disturbing and persistent symptoms pointing to HIV: sore throat that went on for months, itchy skin that is not going away and chronic diarrhea. I have also tested positive for E. Coli in my stool. Apparently a strain that is commonly found in immunocompromised patients. I also have persistent neck pain on 1 side and chronic chills. So far my 4th gen and RNA HIV tests have been consistently negative after testing multiple times and well beyond the window period. However, my lymphocyte counts have been dropping don’t look good: CD4 580, CD8 571, CD4/CD8 1.01. CD57 count is also high.
Has anyone been in a similar boat? Could someone give me some advice? I really feel desperate.
Is an HIV DNA test worth it?
