fatigue
tiredness (after long hrs of sleping)
reacurring herpez (about twice a month)
flu like symtoms (just recent, could be due to weather change)
headaches
pins and needles in hands and feet
tingling in face and scalp
started to feel sick
i suffer with depression which has recently got server i had the implant incerted abt a month ago (after i gt these symtoms so dont thnk it could be due to that although they have got alot worse) but the depression worsening could be due to the implant .
i have had a few blood test's for anemia, blood count and diabetes, all came back normal.
i am extremly worried about all my symtoms incase i have something really wrong with me i have been looking up symtoms online and i have symtoms of hiv and a brain tumour (probly wasnt the best idea to check symtoms on google) i got tested for hiv about 4 months ago and whilst i was waiting for my results (which came back negative) i managed to convince myself i had the virus.....i really do not want to put myself through that again and really need peace of mind for what ele these symtoms could be!.......someone help!

I'm not one of the experts here, but from what I know, HIV is not diagnosed through symptoms. Also, a negative HIV test 3 months post exposure would mean that you are negative. Hope that helps.

If you have not put yourself at risk since your negative HIV result i.e. had unprotected sex or shared iv drugs, then you do not need to re-test.

Symptoms are not an indicator or HIV, the only way you can be sure is to undergo a test - which you have, and it was negative.

Worrying is only going to make your symptoms worse.  I would say that the main root of this problem is psychological, not physical.

Consult a doctor about your symptoms, but I can tell you with confidence that If you have tested negative and NOT engaged in any risky behaviour I stated before then you are fine.

Your symptoms will not be connected to HIV

Hope this helps

HIV has no specific systems. Symptoms or lack of will never tell you your status. The only way to know your status if you have had an exposure is by testing. You can test if you had an exposure 3 months post exposure for a conclusive result.
