Hi Everyone. Hoping I can get yours and Teaks opinion here please. I know I have had irrational fears regarding hiv previously but I am very concerned. I had a test done in July 2017. It was negative. Since then only been with one partner and also been using protection. I went for a general check up at quest diagnostics in Los Angeles. I was the last patient of the day and basically they were doing scanning/clearing up while I was there. I was facing the side onwards toward the lady doing this. I felt something go in my eye. Also the needle was definitely not in a plastic cover. I asked him to show me it was clean and he did by disposing of one in a container and then taking out another but I saw these needles in a drawer but no plastic on them, just a plastic lift off cover. I was concerned a little bit but have had these phobias before so brushed it off. 15 days later came down with shaking chills, low fever, headache (a bad one), and muscle aches, low appetite. This lasted around 20 hours. I was very stressed during this time and this increased by worry that I might catch something. I developed bad sore throat two weeks after with swollen gland on one side. This is where I got really worried. I have lost my appetite twice in the past two months. Once, a week after the sore throat and then again now. I have no appetite, smell of food makes me nauseated and often nauseated. This lasted about a week last time. I know it's not anxiety and am not on medications. My tongue is fairly white but two doctors have told me I don't have oral thrush. I would like to know if these symptoms are in line with hiv. I have already had much blood work done, not yet for hiv. My white blood cell count was 4.31, a little lower than previous blood work I looked at one year ago. Very concerned here. Could anyone comment on these symptoms please. I am scared to be tested now. I know it sounds irrational but not sure what is going on, because I can't eat for a whole week each time and have already started to lose weight because of it.
