Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
What is your age, Gender? Have you had Unprotected sex recently with a Stranger? If yes, there could be chances of HIV. Could you please be more clearer in describing your Symptoms? Do you mean, you have swollen lumps in your armpits? May be yous should get yourself examined by a Physician and get a HIV test done. If it comes out Negative, you may want to repeat the test after 3 Months.

Good Luck.

Dear Doctor. I am working in Gulf. I am single 34. last march I came to India. During my vacation. I had sex with one married girl. Her husband also working in abroad. She was not a prostitute. She was one of my friends classmate. I saw rash in both of her lower arms. She told me that was allergy problem. Now I belive she was infected with HIV. During sex I used condom. but I put my fingers inside . and there was a small cut in my finger that happends 2 days before. and there was deep kissing . and she done oral without protection less than 1 min. After 2 days of the event I felt joint pain in fingers. and a small rash came to my upper lips and roof of my mouth . After around 35 days of this event some problems started on me:- 1 In my right side of my tounge and lips appeard white spots. 2, sore throat, reddish throat and swollen tonsil for a month. and my sound change. Red eyes for 2 days and foamy saliva 3, little swollen lymph nodes in neck and groin. 4, Very mild Flu around 3 week . a cold and discomfort feeling from chest and stomac 5,itchy Rash came in my whole body. coming and disappearing in 30 minutes 6, Neck stiffness and pain 7, 1 week there was diarrhea 8, swollen left upper eyelid one day 9, musle vibration in whole body 10, Digestion problem 11, black bloody spot in lips for one day 12, head presure 13 fatigue 14,Ear whisiling I took Augmentin 625 for 5 days. I am fearing to go a hopital here. I told her that you have some problem. So you should take a test. she went to a doctor and done General check up . and she told she is ok.she dont have any problem . I think she did not take Hiv test. Now I am very upset and worried about HIV. As I am in abroad I cannot take a Hiv test here anonymously. I belive i am infectd with HIV. What I want to do next? can I confirm HIV with these symptoms? If I am infected when I want to start treatment. How long I can hide this from others and family members. Is there any hope for curable medicines in my life time.

i have a few brown spots on my body (chest and lower back) that I haven t noticed before. I am worried about HIV, as I had a high-risk sexual encounter ( a professional sex-worker woman who I found out is likely positive for HIV, syphilis, and herpes) on July 17, 5 weeks ago. I took an Oraquick antibody test after 3 weeks which was negative, and more significantly I hope, a DNA PCR HIV early detection test a couple days after. Both were negative. I did get the flu early August, during which I developed a case of peripheral neuropathy (hands, feet, left cheek), which haven t completely gone away to this day. I am also fatigued all the time, regardless of the amount of sleep I have had. I will test again for HIV next Tuesday, which will be the 6-week mark. What could I have?

Hi,am scared that i might have got Hiv! I got common cold(running nose and sneezing),i feet itched and had burning sensation on them.I woken up sometime in the morning and my feet feel numb.I did not have fever but i sweat once at night.Could be that my spleen hurt for some time(approx. 1 Week).I had no swollen lymph nodes and no rush.My Wife had a serious cold too.She had burning and itchy feet too.She had red patches all over her body that disappeared after 10 Mins.She had no fever and possibly no swollen lymph nodes.May be a little swollen on the neck.She had tiny rush on the neck.And one itchy pimple on the chest.Doctors checked her blood for infections but found nothing.Do they automatically check for P24 Antigens? Could it be that we are infected?
