Doctor :  
Also you know a good amount of medical terms, Good
User :   sir thanks to the internet
User :   i have been doing a lot of research online
User :   and finally my local doc said she wants to do a culture
User :   however i am scared because i am not being diagnosed correctly here
Doctor :  
So now I want to ask you a few more questions
User :   sure sir
Doctor :  
Are you married?
User :   no
Doctor :  
Are you sexually active?
User :   no
Doctor :  
User :   i mean yes all parts are in place but i dont do anything
Doctor :  
Have you undergone tests for Hepatitis A,B,C?
User :   ok 1 doubt befiore you get there.. i had been to a place a few weeks back following 2 days after which these symptoms started.. it started with a stomach upset alongwith the low grade fever.. i felt a prick on my arm when i was walking in a public place however when i checked there was nothing on my arm.. but it felt like a sting or a needle prick
User :   does HIV get transmitted liek this
User :   or have you heard of any such instances of transmission in india
User :   no i havent dont any hepatites checks yet
User :   i am just scared about that prick feeling i felt
Doctor :  
yes if the needle is infected
User :   but i was standing alone when i felt the prick.. i am sure it must have hurt when the needle was inserted right
Doctor :  
But HIV virus does not survive for a longer time outside body
User :   because i felt nothing and i felt the prick when there was no one around me
Doctor :   Ok
User :   so do you doubt hiv early symptoms.
Doctor :  
It is a remote possibility
Doctor :  
You need to be anxious or come to such conclusions
User :   have u personally heard of any such cases in india
User :   ?
User :   well sexually i havent been in contact with a women since 8 months now.. so i am sure if there was anything then it would have surfaced
Doctor :   Yes, people who have injected
User :   however it is this that bothered me a lot.
Doctor :  
Such cases are seen
Doctor :  
So you have had sex before
User :   yes
User :   long back..
Doctor :  
May I know the contact?
User :   CBC showed WBC and RBC all normal
User :   except low lymphocytes
User :   but that test was immediately after the stomach infection as per my local doc here
Doctor :  
User :   what contact?
Doctor :  
Who was your sexual contact?
User :   my gf in dubai
User :   well no chance of her being infected
User :   as the govt there checked ppl every 2 years
User :   for the visa
Doctor :  
Have you had sex with single/multiple partners?
User :   no no single
User :   that too only twice
User :   we stayed seperate but she was commited to me
Doctor :   How about your gf?
User :   i am not a multiple types guy and she is still pretty healthy herself and commited too
User :   i said na sir her visa just got renewed and she is negative as the govt wont process the visa unless they check for hiv every 2 years
Doctor :   Does she have multiple partners? Sorry but I need to ask
User :   no she doesnt
Doctor :  
Ok thats nice
Doctor :  
Now coming back to the point
User :   yes
Doctor :  
even I dont want your test to be positive
Doctor :  
but it is good if you get it tested once
User :   ok
Doctor :  
because HiV becomes positive only after 6 months
User :   does low grade fever show signs of hiv or what else could be the problem
Doctor :   Now get it rectified first
User :   bcoz my stools are all normal except gas
Doctor :  
Also go for Hepatitis tests

Doctor :   Ok
User :   what do you think could be the problem here doc
User :   from your experience
User :   low grade fever / no loss of appetite / stomach upset / fatigue
User :   gas
Doctor :  
Tuberculosis, typhoid
User :   tidal fever which comes and goes
User :   mostly in the evenings
Doctor :  
User :   and hiv?
User :   are these symptoms?
User :   or even close?
User :   i will get tested anyways
