Hi...I really appreciate all the work that you do on this forum as it's very helpful. I've now had a sore throat for 3 months post my possible exposure. I also have ongoing stomach pains in my gut (cramping) and red bumps that don't go away on my stomach. I started the sore throat about 2 weeks after exposure and it has not gone away and the stomach issues have kept coming. I've had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy and blood work, all ok...no issues. I'm thinking that this may be HIV related as I've read that HIV parks itself in the GI Tract and attacks the immune system there...Also, I have constant white tongue and geographic tongue. No other symptoms...no fever, no night sweats, no weight loss, etc.
Can u tell me your knowledge on this subject regarding HIV, the gut, the throat, etc? It's been 3 months, so I don't think it's ARS, but the sore throat is continuous as is the white tongue and stomach cramping.
