symptoms mean nothing in judging people's HIV status. because they are totally unspecific .that said,your symptoms are not worrisome for or even suggestive of ARS.
but they really are suggestive of classical anxiety symptoms.diarrhea,dizziness,heavy eyes,warm forehead they are classic symptoms of chronic stress and anxiety.
have a HIV test after 12 weeks.all hiv tests these days include antibody for HIV2.your risk was low and you can expect a NEGATIVE result.
I agree with you that they are not suggestive for ARS/ Acute HIV Infection.
I also understand ARS happens between 2-4 weeks and stays for 1 or 2 weeks.
Also, if it would have been ARS then they would not have been carrying this long (till 8 weeks) BUT vice Versa IF it is anxiety and these symptoms stayed till 8 weeks and still should have continued. BUT after 8 weeks i am feeling normal and healthy again.
Can you please give me some information with this too?
I appreciate in advance!!
Lol stop asking questions about your symptoms and go test Delhi. I just made another neg. Test at 11 wks yesterday and I still have symptoms but I'm starting to believe that it just might not be hiv. I'm now seeing a doctor for my symptoms. So when they say symptoms don't mean anything, u shld believe them and go TEST.
I want to stop asking questions but symptoms are coming on and that doesnot mean that i am coming here for diagnosis.
But just to have re assurance from most of them who were in my boat at some point of time and other experts who have been doing study about the disease.
I really appreciate the good work you guys are doing?
Thanks a lot in advance
As you have been told testing is the ONLY way of knowing your status NOT symptoms. Most all people on this forum have many symptoms and yet had NO RISK or tested NEG
This tells you that symptoms mean NOTHING
Thanks for your encouragement guys,
but the symptoms seem to be gone now after 8 weeks but just curious that unconsistent diarrhea for 2 days and feverish feeling for 4-5 weeks every 3-4 days worries me a bit as its not usually I have been feeling but after the exposure this is all happened. Also, some wetness on head and neck for couple of random mornings in Cold Weather. Isn't it Unusual?
