Three and a half weeks ago I was a club dancing and another individual began dancing with me on the dancer floor. After dancing for a couple of minutes the other person began kissing me by placing their tongue into my mouth. (I have a problem with bleeding gums sometimes after I brush and floss and sometimes inflammation of the gums.) After dancing we became more aquainted and kissed once or twice more in the same manner as previously described. I did not notice any blood but we had both been driking quite a lot. As I was getting ready to go home for the night, one of the individual's friends told me that the individual had just recently tested positive for HIV. About three days later I began having symptoms such as mild fever, headache, dry throat, loss of appetite, and trouble sleeping. A day later after these symptoms I had a severe case of diarrohea. I have been under a great deal of stress over the incident and the symptoms. The symptoms and the proximity of the encounter seem too much like a coincidence. What are your thoughts? Could this be a rare HIV kissing case?
The day prior to the encounter I had a blood test done as a routine check at work which came up negative on the 20th of March. Prior to the blood test I had not engaged in any risky activity within the previous months.
I am getting another HIV test done this week and again in two to three more weeks. I try to think positive but because of the other individual's HIV status and the symptoms, I'm already conviced that I may be going through the seroconvesion process of HIV and a possible positive reading from the HIV test terrifies me to death. I realize that this probably sounds pretty pathetic
