Some said that HPV (warts)normally goes within 6 months. The same is said about some other STDs.Most of us here are having symptoms for more than 6 months.

My girlfriend, soon to be my wife, is having similar symptoms. She is now having muscle pain, some rash on the leg and passing excessive gas. My legs feels like they are burning and muscle pain in the lower part of my leg. The sole of my left foot hurts whenever i step of the bed in the morning. This goes away during the day.

Depressedman, i hope the best for you and your girlfriend's test results today.

It's just strange for both me and my girlfriend to be having symptoms and be comfortalbe with that. It just prove to me that something is definately wrong inside.

Hey Ustas, I'm hanging in there man seems we have just about same symptoms goin on here. I know how you feel my wife has experienced a lot of the same symptoms as well. She's telling me to trust the tests and let it go but I can't. This pain in my spleen and liver area just isnt normal to last this long. Neck glands, armpit glands, and groin pain for months something isn't right. By the way has anyone noticed their scalp itching more than usual? I've noticed my wife scratching hers to that's why I know something's not right.

Hey dalton, same with you I've had all your symptoms as well, I've been through the itchy hands it was always worse after a shower.

UK, i really wish what u r saying is so. If my girlfriend did not do a Pap smear that shows some bacteria plus she having a little rash on her leg, bad flu in earlier days, muscle pain, then i'd be ok.

I can't be at ease knowing all that and me having symptoms.

Scared, i'm almost certain that whatever your problem is, it is also mine. The fact that u mention itchy skin after a shower, i am convinced. For me, evetrytime i shower my skin itch me badly. now, i should mention that i have this issue from i was in my teens, but it has gotten worse since this problem.

I don't want to diagnose myself but after reading about the issues related to HTLV, then the reality hits home. The same way i felt about HIV, but thank God that wasn't the culprit.

Hello everyone I need some advise I have every symptoms of hiv except fever and rash. I had unprotected sex wit a female that I hardly new she gave me chlamydia. After that cleared up I started to notice a burning sensation on my penis doctor thought it could be herpes I never had a breakout I got tested for it and it came back negative. I started to feel like if I had the flu it went away after a week or two I could my right hand goes numb and on my left hand my fingers especially my middle finger tip goes numb I read that that's also a symptom of hiv. I had thrush on tongue well what I think was thrush the doctor said that it wasn't my groin glands feel swollen and they hurt I had headaches at the beging too its been 7 weeks from my exposure I tested negative at the 6 week mark I'm it will soon turn positive. The female took a test and tested negative too but she couldn't even feel that she had the chlamydia. She has only had sex with 3 guys including me she said she had protected sex the first time the the first guy she then fail to use protection wit the second that's who I think she got it from this was around the middle of Feb which would be 3 months already for her she then had protected sex with him again on the tenth of march but it was protected maybe the condom broke or something I don't know she said she's pretty sure it didn't but who knows. She's gettin tested again on June2nd that will be her 3 month mark from last time so we'll know if its positive or not. I will be gettin tested again at the 8 week mark hope its a negative does any have any advise and has anyone up here tested positive yet god bless us all

Hello Donefor, u are not done for as yet. I would advise u not test at 8 wekks. Wait util the 10th week, if that is negtive then u can gaurantee that it wont change at 3 months. If she tested and it's negative then u r safe. It has been over 10 week since she had her exposure, if she is correct, then u can party. I have been there. I wish mine was chlamydia, then i'd be fine by now.

Hey Scared, I don't have problems with my scalp itching. It's just my hands, and left shoulder that itches. My wife's hands started itching yesterday, and she doesn't know what I have done yet. The Dr's do know that I have some kind od bacteria, but they just don't know what it is. I don't itch after I take a shower, cause I don't really itch that much like I use too. I'm just mainly in pain, and have bowl changements. Whatever it is, it's attcking me and my wife's sinuses. It's not as bad as last year, cause we were having flu like symptoms with chills. I know whatever it is, we all have the samething going on with us. I just hope and pray that it's not HIV. Sometimes I just wonder if it could be HIV, and for some reason it can't be detected. I'm sorry, but that's how I feel.. I really hope that I'm wrong.

Ustas, let's hope this isn't HTLV either, we can't keep diagnosing ourselves on the Internet but I know it's hard not to with all these symptoms. Your right doctors do say symptoms for HIV don't last for months 2 to 3 weeks at most then they go away and come back 8 to 10 years later.

donefor, believe me we all know EXACTLY how you feel, just believe your test results. Like Ustas says wait till 10 weeks and then test, i know how hard it is to wait with all the anxiety. Test at 13 weeks for your conclusive result, which will be negative. If this girl is telling you the truth then your more than likely safe from HIV. I don't see your 6 week test changing though. One thing here everyone has to remember symptoms mean nothing when it comes to HIV, just believe your test results.

Dalton, I wonder the same thing what if it is HIV and its just not being detected. But they say with today's tests they are so sensitive and accurate so if they are then we have to let HIV out of our minds.

I'm gonna take one more test on Thursday which will be 26 weeks and if it's negative I'm gonna let this HIV thing go. My doctor was sure that I don't have HIV. I just don't no what else can cause all this, from what I've read about HTLV it's really rare and they say if people do have complications from it it's decades latert 20 to 30 years later that's why I'm wondering how could this be HTLV. I'm just gonna keep working with my doctor till we figure this out.

HTLV
HTLV is the politially ignored cousin of HIV.

Apparently no one cares that no treatments for HTLV exist; there's dozens of treatment for HIV, Hepatitis, etc but no treatments for this, probably because it's considered an "old" disease that no one gets anymore. Unfortunately, 20 million people are infected, and the number is actually larger because most people don't know that they have the disease until they're diagnosed with rapidly fatal cancer, or end up in a wheelchair. Thank the medical community and drug companies for not caring; the unfortunate children that are born with this disease will experience paralysis (like what happened with Polio) before they reach the end of their teenage years. Something needs to be done to bring awareness to this very serious, very debilitating, and very deadly virus, in order to get research on a cure, drug, vaccine started

Donefor, come on, u need to be strong no matter what. Symptoms can't be used to diagnose HIV.......a test is needed.

I want u to prove yourself wrong...test at 10 weeks, then talk to us about your result if thats your desire.

U said u were tested for all other STDs.

Dear Denover,
i know exactly how you feel,i was in the same situation before,if you read my previous posts you will find out that i had ever single symptom for HIV,i had almost everything,even my glands still swollen after 7 months of the exposure (from Aug 25 my neck glands & sore throat ) BUT NEGATIVE RESULT,believe me man it could be something else,i did tests at 3 months , 6 months , 7 months , all negative result .. Smile
as USTAS said ( believe tests , you need to get tested at 10 weeks , then confirm it at 13 weeks ) that's it , you will be fine believe me i'm reading about that for the last 8 months , you result at 6 weeks is promising man , have faith ( you will be fine dude)..
