Question: Hi Doctor
10 days back I had an exposure.
Performed Oral to a woman and then protected intercourse.

Post this I am concerned. 1 day after I had some kind of ulcer (apthous) in tongue which went away 2 days later. I also had a kind of sore throat which is to some extent still there.

10 days after this I am experiencing some cramps and mild pain and weakness in my knee, shin of my legs. Also the back of left knee is slightly swollen.
Feeling tired during walking.

I did a screening test 2 days after exposure which was negative but my concerns are not going away.
Please help.

Brief Answer:
No risk of HIV.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Flirty,

Welcome to HCM.

The risk of getting HIV with protected intercourse is nil and oral sex also carries very less likely risk so you need not to worry. The symptoms you have may be due to some vitamin deficiency or other reason but non specific for HIV. Consult your physician and take multivitamin tablets with muscle relaxants for the same.

As such the reliability of HIV test after 2 days of exposure is very less but in your case no testing is required as the exposure is not significant so allay the anxiety or fear related to HIV and move ahead in life happily with your family.

Thank You

Hi. Yesterday, my GP diagnosed me with celiac disease. My few symptoms seem to stem from vitamin deficiencies and anaemia through malabsorption i.e memory loss, numb tongue, pallor etc. Both my sister and father also have celiac disease, so I am no stranger to the hard-ships of a gluten-free diet. As a student, I have made an informed decision not to follow this treatment plan, with the knowledge that I would be increasing my risk of cancer, because I feel it would be impossible to fit around my lifestyle. I will be seeing my GP again next week for my follow-up appointment, and am planning to ask for a prescription for strong multivitamins, treatment for my anaemia, and digestive enzymes. In your opinion, how effective will this treatment plan be? Is my GP likely to agree to this? Thanks.
