the lymph nodes under my jaw have been swollen since august 7 but today i noticed that my right occipital lymph node was swollen and hurting. its been about 22 days since that possible exposure i posted about last time.
i was looking online for what my swollen nodes could beand i came across this post in the forum:
this is what one of the responses was:
The following conditions should be considered if palpation of lymph nodes reveals abnormalities:
* Submental and submandibular lymph nodes: oral or dental infection;
* Preauricular lymph nodes: viral illness, lymphoma, Romana syndrome (trypanosomiasis), or cat-scratch fever;
* Posterior auricular lymph nodes: toxoplasmosis or measles;
* Occipital lymph nodes: HIV infection; etc...
is that response for occipital lobes for real? because the moment i saw that my heart stopped.
I also had another question... if someone were experiencing a true case of acute HIV infection, would all the symptoms hit at once? or would it be gradual? im definitely planning on getting tested asap but at only 22 days my results probably wouldnt be reliable, would they?
thanks a lot for the help
