Is muscle pain a symptom of HIV ? - Online Doctor Chats
I had a risky exposure about 5 weeks ago. it was unprotected and it was with a female. i'm a 22 year old male and i had unprotected vaginal and anal sex with her. she told me she was 38. i've had no symptoms so far but a couple of days ago i started to have some muscle pain. i'm not sure if stress and anxiety can cause this but its very mild. i can easily go through my day and even go to the gym and lift heavy weight.
Dr XXXXXXX here
hows your day going doc?
Very well, Thanks
I have gone through your post
How can I help you ?
Are you there ?
i was just wondering how bad are joint/muscle pain would hurt?
is it mild or painful?
HIV ars presents a milder form of pain
can one have joint and muscle pain without any other ars symptoms?
just very mild pain that comes a goes
Fever is an essential feature
so a fever would likely be present with my muscle/joint pain if i was experiencing ars?
can stress and anxiety about having hiv cause muscle/joint pain?
Yes, stress of any type can cause myalgia and fatigue
ok sweet. really helped me out here doctor. was starting to freak out a little but you calmed my nerves.
You are welcome
one more thing
Is there anything I can help you with ?
yes, please proceed
i have been reading a lot about hiv and i was just wondering, in your professional opinion. what is the percentage of people who experience ars hiv? I've heard its 50%-90% but every site i go to says differently
I would say around 75% experience ARS symptoms
most of them have milder symptoms which usually go unnoticed
and just having muscle/joint pain isn't one? i would most likely have a list of things going on?
ok sweet. thanks doc. have a good day!
Bye for now
