We've all been there, and we're still going thru it Donefor. My last HIV test was at 13 months, and it still came back negative. My ex Dr was supossed to do all the std's, but she didn't. She only tested me for Hiv, Syphillis, and Gonorrhea. So far, the only thing that they found is that I do have some kind of bacteria infection that I've had for over a year now.

Hey Casper, I'm to still having throat issues like the feeling of something being stuck in there. My neck glands are also still swollen 6 months later. I'm still having pain in my liver and spleen area, and also groin pain. This has to be some kind of infection this isn't normal to have these types of symptoms going on for so long. I'm in the process of getting tested for HTLV. My last HIV test was negative at 22 weeks I'm testing again Thursday which will be 26 weeks.

donefor, hang in there man that 6 week negative isn't likely going to change. Your CONCLUSIVE test will be at 13 weeks which WILL be negative I promise.

Once again guys thanks my symptoms seem to be calming down a Lil which is really makin me think that I do have it for sure because that's how it works it hits you and then it'll go away for years. I started to look up the cost for the treatment and I do not like what I see at all I shouldn't had done it now I have more to worry about. I was just tryin to be proactive. Each day I wake up I wish it was a bad dream its not unfortunately. Last night I kept waking up to use the bathroom every hour this use to happen when it first started. Like the first week. I had lost some weight but it seems like I'm gaining it right bac k. Is anybody's eyes up here giving them trouble i been gettin blurry vision since this all began I went to get my eyes checked out and the doctor said it was just pink eye I told them that I thought I had gotten it from the chlamydia they just gave me some eye drops and told me to drive on. I really hope this isn't hiv. It started from me thinkin it was a uti to chlamydia to thinkin it is herpes and now hiv I really don't know what to do anymore I keep breaking down I don't know what do. It sucks just having to wait and thinkin that so much is going on inside my body. I pray for all of us that everything turns out alright. I don't know if ill be able to wait for the 10 week I really wanna get tested again on the 8th.week maybe just to calm my nerves. Where do you guys go to get the cdc

Hello Scared,i think we have exactly the same thing man , both of us have the same type of sore throat, the same lymph/glands swollen for almost the same period ( i think i'm a bit earlier than you, my sore throat & glands are swollen since August 25),i also had some itching on my chest,shoulders, with some lower back pain,
i don't have any idea about what i could have, diffidently it is not HIV,(come on man , they say all over the world now 12 week is enough , both of us go for the 24 weeks test , with a negative result)it is something else,
what i read about HTLV make me sure that i don't have it at all,most (almost all) of the infected people DON'T feel/see any symptoms b4 decades of the infection,

Denofer: Believe it or not,you don't have HIV,all you have is anxiety !!! your 6 weeks result is really good indicator , it will be negative also on 10 weeks & 13 weeks as well,

Wats up everyone.. Well my GF got her 12 week Negative HIV result today.. Still waiting on sypillis. Im so relieved and happy about the results it taken a load of my chest.. Its just so hard to let all the stress and anxiety go becuase of my off and goin symtoms. Body pains like random spots. Joints or legs. Tingling feet and hands at times still. And this throat thing. Its not sore just feels like something is stuck there. I have noticed I been swallowing more and I notice everytime I swallow saliva,drinks,or food, something I never paid attention to. Maybe I irrated it by swallowing alor more. I dont know. Im thinkn of talkn to a therapist becuase this has ruined my life. Its become like a deadly obsession of some sort. And im deppressed most of the time. But im taking it day by day. Hopefully I can feel better soon. Well just keeping you guys updated. I still see only Negative results so Congrats to everyone!

I really think is it tho guys and for some reason the tip of my penis has been burning I couldn't stop using the bathroom once again last night my mouth got super dry too I'm really expecting the worst now. I keep thinkin it could be herpes but most of the symptoms point to hiv and the girl still hasn't had any symptoms yet of anything hopefully she gets her results tomorrow and I hope that if it is hiv I hope it shows up I'm just tired of not knowing. I'm going to lose everything I have worked so hard for. I'm sorry guys I know I sound week and ya'll tryin to give me hope but its running out really fast

HIV Symptoms confused with HTLV
Donefor, I can feel your situation coz i had all symptoms of HIV. HIV can only be confirmed with HIV test and symptoms mean nothing.Please believe your test your 6 week test result are encouraging.its unlikely youre test results will change.
One thing i would like to mention here is HTLV mimics most of the HIV symptoms like blurred vision, dry mouth, joint pain, weight loss, Diareah,numbness on hand and legs with neuro problems. Please get tested for HTLV once you rule out HIV after windo period.

I never really had a sore throat, and when I did it didn't last long. My nose always feels stopped up. I don't get blurred vision, but I do get pains in my eye where your bone is. A lot of my problems that I had last year is gone. I think I'm in more pain in my bones and joints than anything. When all of this started, it attacked my sinuses, and the dr's. thought at first that I had a blockage in my sinus, cause my face bones would hurt all the time, and the pain in my face came back

Hey Casper, by any chance did you perform oral sex on this woman? I hate thinking the worst but they say men can get hpv in the throat from performing oral sex on a woman, and certain types of hpv can cause throat cancer. Believe me I hate to even think this but a soar throat for so long???? I'm seeing an E.N.T. Dr. about my throat and dry mouth issues. He ordered a E.S.R. Blood test I'll know the results on thursday. My throat dosent really hurt just that feeling of something being stuck in there, and it gets worse the dryer my mouth gets. My chest also to gets itchy mostly my upper chest collarbone area. Also I've been getting unbelievable spine pain that comes and goes and this constant light headedness and dizziness. Also some blurred vision.

Ustas, go for a cat scan so you will know what's going on just try and hang in there man I know it's tuff just be strong your going to be alright.

Depressedman, many congrats on your gf's test result,really happy for both of you. I'm to having random body aches and pains, bone pain and tenderness, and joint pain.

donefor, did you get tested for herpes yet? Hsv1 and Hsv2 can cause a lot of symptoms you are describing. Don't ever give up hope you don't have HIV trust me. I feel the exact same way you do even worse because I fear I've infected my wife the mother of my 2 boys, so TRUST me when I tell you I know EXACTLY how your feeling but you have to try to stay strong.

adviseme, where do you find this information about HTLV causing all the same symptoms of HIV, all I have read is that 95% of people infected are healthy carriers meaning they dont even know they have it. Also the very small percentage of people who actually do develop any problems it's usually decades later 20 to 30 years later. This is a virus that attacks your T cells which causes cancer but like I said everywhere I've read it takes decades for this happens to someone. I'm not saying I don't believe you I just want to know where you read it causes all the same symptoms as HIV. I'm concerned because I think I might have this. I'm in the process of getting tested for this.

I would also advise EVERYONE HERE to get tested for HTLV as well, at least you can rule it out as a possibility it's better to be safe then sorry. Good luck everyone and God Bless all of you we'll get through this one way or the other.

Hey guys, i've posted a site for u guys to read about HTLV, but ADMIN told me they had to block it. I really don't know how to send this to u people.

On this site, person's share there experience with HTLV. All the symptoms that they describe, i have them. They see symptoms in less than a year and are unable to walk freely after a few years becaues the lower limbs are weak.

I'll try and list all there symptoms here. another time.

Hello Scared, no man i didn't perform any oral with her , at all (only kissing & that's it ), but i still suffer from the sore throat, actually yesterday was pain all over my throat & glands, also my mouth was so dry without a reason,just like that,
i start to think about htlv when ustas mention it on his last reply, I think it could be the reason for all of that , OR ELSE it could be hpv ,OR, hsv could give the same symptoms also,
what worries me is the timing, i'm like that for the last 8 months , will I be like that forever Or what..?
please update me man with your E.N.T suggestions,i wish you all the best on finding out what is this...!!!

Thanks guys I was tested for herpes it came back negative but the doctor said that it would be hard to test without any blisters or sores. But the symptoms for herpes don't last like this. They only happen when you have an outbreak. I'm going to try to get checked out again tomorrow. But I really think that this is hiv there is just to much for it not to be. Man what if its hiv and herpes can my life get any worse I'm sure it can god help us all

Hey guys, out of all these symptoms that we're getting is anybody getting parts of their muscle inflammed? My left shoulder gets inflammed every now and then. Sometimes it gets so bad that I can't move it that good. I really don't want to think that it's hiv, but I saw online we're hiv can make your muscle inflammed. I hate to say it, but I think that whatever we have is hiv or htlv, cause all the symptoms that I have had and still getting leads to hiv or htlv. When it all started, I thought that I had throat or lung cancer cause of some of the signs, but then I started getting signs that weren't listed, and my wife started getting signs at that point.

Large bump on face
I just caught up on the latest posts regarding symptoms and HTLV, and that it's being considered as a cause of symptoms for many of you. A few people mentioned having a large bump on their faces, and I also experienced that symptom, so we have that much in common as well. Whoever said that symptoms don't start right away isn't correct, the symptoms do start right away and resemble ARS, which is no surprise since HTLV is a retrovirus just like HIV. Again, anyone reading this who tests HIV antibody negative beyond the three month window but is still experiencing symptoms should consider HTLV.

Best wishes.
