Hi Welcome to Health Care Magic......
medical checkups by organisation are usually routine tests like A complete blood counts , Blood sugar , Urine routine , ECG and chest Xray are usually done to just have a report of health status of the individual 1) Becoz healthy employees are poductively better for organization 2) Few of the health insurance companies which the organisation is affiliated too require them as a baseline .
HIV (AIDS) symptoms are usually not very distinctive from others. Common symptoms are fever for more than a month , diarrhoea - loose stools for more than a month, inexplainable significant weight loss , repeated infections...
No sex doesnot reduce heamoglobin levels.

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?

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.

Hello I am writing as I am very concerned about my fathers health, with in the last year he has undergone bladder cancer removal had a stoma fitted as part of the operation, he has been in and out of hospital for several blood transfusions, he has recently lost a lot of wait, had a loopagram which we have recently found out did not perform fuuly as it did not complete the loop, he is now after calling the GP out again in hospital, he went in witha kidney function of 12 and within 2 days this is already down to 10, he has had a brain scan and at last an MRI on his kidneys, there seems to be blockages to both kidneys, his creatinine level is 400, aparaently his left kidney has been blocked for some time alas we have not been told. They are intending to operate shortly on the right kidney which is also enlarged to try and remove the blockage. We are not being told what the blockage could be due to, we dont know why they seem reluctant to talk or operate on the left kidney, we are very concerned that this could be secondary cancer and he is not being told. He just seems to be in an out of hospital getting the immediate problem fixed then going back in again the next week which he is finding very distressing. Is there anything we can do to prevent the toing and froing in an out of hospital, if it is terminal are the doctors obliged to tell us, will the doctors know what caused the blockage when they operate, will that make any difference, will he need to have dialysis as his functionality is to low, what is his possible outcome so both he and us can deal with it, we really feel like we need the facts instead its another day we will see what that brings it has been going on to long, please can you help
