Also, a friend claims my foot odor smells like alcohol. My shoes do smell awkward at times.
Some of these could be HIV related. But whenever symptoms occur, they occur all at the same time. Kind of like being hit by a truck, it's all simultaneous. Plus, ARS symptomms don't stretch out that far past exposure. You were just sick is what it is.
Is six days early enough for ARS? And can HIV cause any of the other symptoms I mentioned? I know they're not ARS, but I am just curious. Like the yellow stool for example, is that malabsorption? And the insomnia, does it ever at any stage cause that? Sorry for all the pushy questions.
No need to apologize. I understand the anxiety. Six days in some cases may be early enough, but they usually appear at 10-14 days. My assumption is that your yellow stool probably is connected with something you have eaten. HIV doesn't cause insomnia. That can be natural. But it can also very easily be anxiety.
So, if it was caused by HIV damaging my immune system the symptoms wouldn't be going away then? I also had a loss of appetite for a week, now I am pretty hungry most of the time.
During a phase of mine, I did anal that was unprotected.
Unprotected anal is definitely the highest risk of behavior. I still do not think what you are going through is HIV because it is lasting so long. But you should not wait so long to test. I advise getting tested as soon as you can. I always advise seeing a doctor so that you can get a proper diagnosis.
I am going to look into that. What do you think it could be? Have you ever heard of another similar in terms of symptoms and duration?
Yeah, it's called anxiety. Your body is beginning to manifest the symptoms that you believe you have. It's turning the smallest of things into a problem because you want it to happen.
