sore throat

Hi Guys,
I have already told u I had DUO test in my 12th, 24th and 46 th day and they came negative. Just after 1 week of my last test I started to have very strange sore throat. I have never had that kind of throat. its not painful so much but its there. How does hiv sore throat like? Does anxiety cause sore throat? thanks for your helps

anxiety can "convince" your mind of just about anything.  ever thought that you just have a plain ole sore throat?  :)

i know that you have been tested...but doing a search doesnt reveal your possible exposure.   ??????????????

A negative duo test at 5 weeks will be 100% reassuring; even 3-4 weeks.  That's the whole idea of dual testing for antigen and antibiody:  it is almost impossible to have a new HIV infection without one of those being positive by 4 weeks

Sore throat alone is not common with primary HIV, and of course we're in the time of year when garden variety colds are most common.  That is a far more likely explanation.
