You can't indicate HIV with the help of symptoms, they just mean NOTHING, if you had a potential exposure, you need to get a confirmatory test at the 12th week.

Your 6 weeks negative is very very unlikely to change.

Also, tingling in the arm and feet has nothing to do with HIV ARS, it's an anxiety symptom.

thank you for replying i am really anxious and feel very bc my gf is not feeling well she is having nausea and stomachache if i have something i donot want her to have anything i am the one that should pay for everything not her, you think 4 weeks negative is promising

4 weeks negative is promising as u still dont have hiv...6 weeks negative is 98% conclusive (thats what the doc told me last time when i collected my 7 weeks)..3 months is the final test u need to take to confirm everything..now coming to symptoms..they will kill u..i know its hard to forget them..sometimes u will be fine and at other times..they will haunt u...i am myself running to my doc later today cause i found some kind of balck spot underneath my eyes(besides all the other symptoms i have already)...i believe u sud keep urself bury..then u will 4 get bout the symptoms..i have a wife..and since yesterday she had diarhea..and this is haunting me now....
