I am a 22 year old male. I am fairly uneducated in regards to HIV but work at a high risk job of getting into contact with it. I am generally very careful, but feel these symptoms are hard to ignore. If I was infected with HIV at all it was through blood to broken skin contact (how likely is this?). I have been experiencing a few symptoms as of late, in this order:
Flu-like symptoms (runny nose, later a sore throat but no swollen lymph nodes as of yet)
Brown splots all over body (and some on face) and very small red dots that looks like individual acne bumps
Abdominal pains, and possibly very fair skin rashes (I may be paranoid about that part)
Bumps at the back of my tongue
Headaches, ear pains
Random muscle pains, usually in the back
I know HIV symptoms are vague, and at first I thought it might be a mono relapse (its not, had testing done). My question is if this sounds as bad to anyone else as it does to me? How many viral infections have these exact same symptoms? I'm very concerned, thank you for your help.
