I had a splinter in my hand I got at work from unloading/loading equipment off a transfer truck last week. I work for a technical college, and our nursing department at one time gave us one of there needles (unopened,never used with blood) to clean out splinters. That needle was in my desk for a long time untouched but open. I used it to try to dig out the splinter. I never penetrated down far enough to get blood. I might be paranoid about this, but could that cause anything like Hep or HIV?
The reason I am asking is this. As of late, I have been suffering from night sweats and some soreness in my arms and legs and also I am tired now. The soreness I can almost explain from moving a pallet jack around a truck loaded with equipment and my muscles are soar. The tiredness could be contributed to the same and I am just burned out, but the night sweats are what gets me. After reading symptoms of HIV, night sweats kept showing up so I guess that is what got me paranoid.Can HIV spread that fast in a week even? Maybe I am very paranoid.
