Let me explain the whole timeline of my incidents. In September I saw number of lipomas on my body increased rapidly, I become worried about it because they can become cancerous in rare cases and I had a recent death in my family due to cancer. I went to a doctor he suggested nothing to worry about but those are lipomas and sent me back home.
Those days I started noticing lipomas very carefully and some of them seem to increase in size and later decrease. A new on popped up on my jaw line at least that’s what I thought. I went to doctor immediately as this was a new development and explained they seem to grow and shrink and he said that was not lipoma but a swollen lymph node. And he also checked something else on by body and said that was cyst and not lipoma . So by now I have swollen lymph nodes, cysts and lipomas. Again this doctor also sent me home and come back if new symptoms appear. This was October first week.
October 2nd week I got flu shot and tdap vaccine and the same week I also got blood draw for annual blood test. That day I felt very weak and in a couple of days that weakness grew into extreme fatigue I could not go to work just stayed home worried sick about cancer , I again took another doctors appointment. She suggested an X-ray and ultrasound of abdomen because by now I was complaining of abdomen pain, rash on my neck swollen lymph node, weakness, no fever though, joint pains. All scans were normal but ultrasound indicated enlarged liver. I had started taking vitamin b12, vitamin d pills as blood draw had shown slightly low levels of them.
Doctor suggested to wait a week and if it does not improve we will do another blood report and hiv test. Hiv test did not sink in properly until a couple of days. I had not even thought in this direction and doctor had not even done any risk assessment. I started reading about it. And yes to my surprise almost all the symptoms of ARS matched except fever. I did not have any fever , but I had multiple swollen lymph nodes they were decreasing in size, extreme fatigue, skin rash on my neck, joint pains sometimes, heavy stomach, and shortness of breath.
Then I read more about hiv and recalled I had made a very bad judgement and had visited a csw on August 12 and had done protected vaginal intercourse and unprotected oral sex, and rimjob as a receptive to and giver. I had not looked at the condom afterwards if it was broken or not. So I become worried about that a lot. Waited some days of sickness is going away but I developed more symptoms like night sweats. I got worried a lot, I decided to bite the bullet and take the hiv screening which is Elisa and western blot if result is positive on October 5th. It is not full 3 months since the incident but full 12 weeks since the incident. And if I were to set symptoms in timeline I started getting symptoms at 7 weeks with swollen lymph node , I gradually developed every other ars symptoms and at 12 weeks also they have not completely gone away. I still have rash some swollen lymph node and definitely milder fatigue.
Test came back negative at 12 weeks, can I count it on being conclusive and move on or late symptoms suggest seroconversion is late and I may develop antibodies after 12 weeks and I should get retested again at 24 weeks ?
Very worried about hiv , please help.
