Hi have suffered the last few months of strange symptoms and my phobia of HIV just made it worse.
Situation : I was in a disco club. In the electronic music scene it's often quite hedonistic. I was on the toilet and scraped my wrist (near the vein I think) on something sharpe of.metal on the wall. I don't know if there was blood/semen on it.
My wrist skin didn't seem to be penetrated completely as there was no blood , just scraped.
Symptoms: after 4 days intense headache , after 2 weeks shingles on my back (could.be from swimming pool), after 4 weeks a flu with fever, headache, cold symptoms . Then from then I had constant headaches and burning sensation in leg/feet/arms/testicles and my shoulder blades which come every now and then. After 3 months I have developed tiny red spots on body and some marks like.mosquito bites (could be from cat allergy as I just got one) and a constant sensation that my right neck gland is swollen under the cheek (but when occupied usually it goes away).
Is this a theoretically impossible risk ? Just can't stop the anxiety which is painful along with the uncomfortable symptoms. What if someone cut themself on the thing sticking out of the wall just before I entered ?
