Acute infection, when its suspected BY YOUR PHYSCIAN, will order the approproate test.

I'm not telling you the test because it's a waste of money ubless you've had a high risk, like unprotected anal, and you now have a SEVERE rash and SEVERE sore throat with a high fever above 101 greater than 2 days.

If thats the case then your doctor will order 1 of the 2 appropriate test.

Because asking the same question over and over is against the rules of this forum.

YOUR PROBLEMS ARE ANXIETY. A fever is greater than 100 degrees. Your leg pains are stress along with you diarrhea. Your sore throat is stress induced from acid reflux or simply allergies. Your oral thrush was probably not oral thrush and just a white coating EVERYONE has that has made you think it's oral thrush

You can not self diagnose thrush. Only a doctor can. Thrush are red or white LESIONS that peel off then bleed. It is not a white coating on your tounge.

You are HIV negative.
