Hi Doctor,
Had sex with CSW 1 month 4 days ago..vaginal sex 1 time with oil lubricated condom(2 condomws wored at same time) and no anal,no oral.. condom neither slipped nor broken,removed safely one by one..also did fingering but used condom..
from next day onwards I felt body temperature lil hot and till now its going n coming.
other symptoms:
muscle pain for 10 days and stopped now
fatigue first 4 weeks and now lil ok
muscle twitching still continues
pin and needles first 10 day
muscle became weak first 2 weeks and now feeling lil better
feeling ill mostly because of condition like brain fog..
rashes(red small dots) appeared on arms and chest,hands and stopped now..
lost weight
now most importandly red gum on lower part of the mouth completely (gingivitis)..
thrush like white covered in tongue..
no cold/diorhea/vomiting/cough
abdominal pain for 4 days and stopped
night and day sweats for 4-5 days.

why these many symptoms,i never faced anytime in my life..

I performed quick tests based on my doctors advice even though its not conclusive

RNA hiv pcr after 14 days - negative
DNA hiv pcr after 28 days - negative
western blot for all antigens (p17,24,34,gp40,etc) after 28 days negative
elisa third gen antibody 1 and 2 negative after 28 days.
tested gonorea,syphilis,herpes,chlamydia after 6 days exposure >> is this enough for window period
hepatites b and c tested negative..

my biggest worry is gingivity or gum disease,i never known this type of disease in my life,full reddish below lower part of gum.. is it because of hiv

Please kindly review my symptoms and test results and guide me further

Brief Answer:
Gingivitis of HIV/STD ruled out. Consult a dentist

Detailed Answer:

Welcome back.

See, you had a negative HIV DNA test after 28 days and negative third generation combo? test negative. That these two test are highly reliable and conclusive after 4 weeks of high risk exposure.
Moreover HIV earliest manifestations will take not less than 4 weeks to appear. If any symptoms appear before this period could not be due to HIV.
You had not have any oral sex. So the gingivitis could not be due to STD causes. There are so many reasons for a gingivitis other than HIV/STD.

Even if you had changed the brand of tooth paste you may likely to have an allergic gingivitis or it may be due to some other reasons. If you could XXXXXXX a dentist, he/she will be able to help you to overcome from this problem.
Nothing to worry about HIV.
