Hello everyone. Maybe I shouldnt be here given that the general idea of this post is to try to find an answer for those who have been suffering of symptoms for a great deal of time and that's not my case, however, I would rather be in your positions instead of mine. I will tell my story and I would appreciate it if you could ask me with some advice, support or whatever.
Day 0: I licked a prostitute's vaginal for less than 10 seconds, I don't recall much (because of alcohol) but I do recall that I didn't push my tongue inside her, that it was just the clit and that it wasn't particularly wet and there were no visible blood. I don't know if I had any cut in either my lips, my tongue or my inner mouth, although it is possible due to alcohol, lemon and lack of sleep.
Day 2. My nose started to run really badly, to such a point that drops seemed water. It just lasted 2 days.
Day 5. I started feeling chills during the day that were unbearable and that lasted until day 16 more or less. Until day 5 I considered that it was a common flu and I neglected everything because I didn't think hiv could be transmitted orally.
Day 7. I woke up covered with sweat, and had a hard time to sleep.
Day 8. I started feeling with lack of energy and the urge to be on my bed the whole day. No night sweat, and fever but still chills.
Day 9 and 10. I started feeling abrupt changes in my body temperature and an intense pain in my lower back. No night sweat
Day 12. A sensation of dizziness, lack of concentration, sensation of not being there took place and a pain in my neck.
Day 13. I wake up covered with swear again. And I can only sleep about 3 hours that night. It's hard for me to move my jaw and I assume it is beachside of the glands around the neck, which don't seem to me to be bigger than usual,but I have never been aware of how big they are so it's not a reliable measure.
Day 14. Night sweats again, change in body temperature, fever, sensitive skin around my neck and I realized some brown dots appeared under my right arm. Again only 3 hours of sleep. I wake up because of what I thought was a mosquito surrounding me but it turns out that it's just my ears that are buzzing. I realize I have a thick white layer on my tongue and two balls at each side of it.
Day 15 and 16. Same symptoms of day 14.
Day 17 18 and 19. Most of the symptoms are gone out of the sudden, u get a little more sleep alough I keep sweating, my ear is still bothering a little,I had a little low energy during the morning.
I have lost a great deal of weigh, my cloths seem as though they weren't mine.

As you can see I have all of the symptoms of ARS and the perfectly fit with the time during which they should take place. What scares me the most is that they left without my doing anything in spite of its severity, which would mean that my seroconversion is about to finish. I still need some extra days to take a fourth-generation test. Although all of us know that the result is undeniable. Please I beg to you not to ignore me, I have had suicidal thoughts and maybe through your comments I can find some relief until the day in which I am going to get my death sentence. I am so desperate that I read the whole post in just 1 day, and thus I have picked some users that seem to me are alike to mine ( although none of you have had such a severe case as mine) ans will send you private specific messages trying to answer some questions. Thanks for reading.

Hi fellows, I will update my condition. Las night I had little or no night sweat. However, I felt an intense pain in the back of my tongue and I felt mucus in my throat. Today some of my symptoms came back although way milder. In addition I developed an slight pain in the lower part of my abdomen and a constant ringing in my ears continued. I noticed that my penis is getting white and I developed an injury in my forehead, as if it were acne. Day after day I convince myself that HIV is the only posibility. I am so depressed. All of my dreams are now shattered. Medical treatment is so expensive in my country that I won't be able to pay it. I am in my early 20s. I still have a lot to live.

I've noticed almost identical symptoms myself. Especially ringing in the ears. This is tinnitus of unknown cause. When did it start for you?? Clenching my jaw makes the ringing very loud. This was sudden onset/increase for me. I'm seeing an ophthalmologist specialist soon for corneal topography as it looks like I've developed keratoconus in the past 15 days with optic neuritis because of this HIV strain or whatever this is.

I went to emergency yesterday for my eyes and the ER orphalmologist was stunned at my symptoms, especially ocular symptoms and findings during the exam. He did a fundus exam then referred me to a retinal specialist for additional tests as an outpatient.

So far:

- Extremely high IgE levels; going for more tests for this
- Tinnitus
- Sudden onset acute keratoconus and optic neuritis diagnosed by ophalmologist yesterday at eye hospital but further testing required
- Generalised fatigue w/post exertion malaise

As you can see this is a serious debilitating strain/virus that has caused me serious damage. I never had these symptoms and diseases before exposure. I can only pray I get better but I think I am loosing the battle with whatever I caught that day. I am now on Valium, Lexapro and Modafinil just to cope with this severe anxiety and fatigue

Hello Help, tjabls for answering, the ringing in my ears started about 14 days after exposure, and it still doesn't go away (although It has been only 3 weeks since exposure), I can't bear even the voice of people talking. I was checking your responses in this forum and I can see that you have had some symptoms like mine, although not all of them, and those that you haven't had are way more specific for HIV. Something that descoirages me a great dral is that none of you guys have (don't get me wrong, it is not that i want domeone to have the same symptoms,in fact I am glad you haven't). Do you guys know of any case like mine, where so many and so specific symptoms took place and ended up being negative? That would cheer me up so much. I will be checked in about 5 or 6 days with a fourth generation test, are 23-27 days enough to have reliable results?

Hello fellows. I want to update my status. Most of my symptoms are already gone. However, now I feel a heath sensation in my groin area. Saturday I performed a third-generation HIV test and it came out negative. Although I only did it so as to prove myself that I wasn't infected before my exposure since third-generation is just reliable afree 13 weeks and its been less than one mon the since my exposure. It is to be said that my last unprotected intercourse was in march 2016. Therefore, if I came down with hiv it was certainly due to my performing cunnilingus.

I dated this girl for a while and throughout the time we dated she was always a little suspicious.Very beautiful girl but there was something hidden about her. At first I thought it was a self esteem issue, but nevertheless there was more beneath the surface. There were a lot of strange little things she did that made me question her personality but at the time I was very much into her so I ignored her awkward flaws. Eventually we got intimate and was some what dating. We work in the same place so we were able to see each other majority of the time. After a good 3 months of being with her I asked her what she thought about us and our relationship. She said she did not want anything serious Because her last relationship she was getting over and she enjoyed hanging with her friends and people at work. Didn't like this but I accepted it and kind of left in an angry way so Later that night I apologized through text and we were fine from there. I tried seeing her a couple times after that and some how she was always busy. I knew she had other things she wanted to do but eventually it led to her standing me up a few times. After the third stand up I told her off and wanted things to end. At this point I suspected that she was talking to someone else. I was so devastated because I really was into her so I confronted her and she said that she was seeing a guy across the street at her other job. Figuring out her lies Later I found out that she was talking to a guy that we work with and they were together before she was with me.When confronted with this She denied every time that she was not talking to the guy at our job. This guy and her look very alike. Blonde hair, blue eyes, similar characteristics. If seen together they look like a couple. I've questioned myself why she did not talk to him because he seemed more of her type, but then again we've always had good chemistry and I am a pretty awesome guy so it made a little bit of sense. I was very hurt bc we all would hang out together outside of work and I was on good terms with the guy but this was way to weird of a situation for me to stay in so I stopped talking to them both. Time went on and seeing them hiding there relationship at work was a big emotional toll for me to endure because I really did still have feelings for her. I tried moving on at this point but she would still lead me on in ways by trying to initiate conversations with me. I would try to rekindle what we had but I never truly had her full interest. Learning through trial and error I eventually gave up on her and what we had. Finally I moved on and was now talking to a girl I met at my friends wedding. This was good for me until I went for a run. While running I had immediate rashes that risen on my forearms. The feeling of this was very different because this has never happened to me before. I urgently ran home and began to research this symptom. Many came up but only one caught my attention. HIV! Reading the early symptoms of this disease I was traumatized because I had the congestion head cold that never went away and everything had started to make a lot of sense to me. Her actions, why they were together before me, how I was feeling, everything! My world crumbled within seconds. With this information I talked with her about it, basically telling her I think I have this disease and asking her if she had it. With the most calm reaction she replies. While Talking to her about it she brings up the past but there was one thing she specifically said that caught my attention. She said " how did you.... you used a condom?" implying that she's asking how did I catch it if I used a condom. She also suggest that we could have "fun now" but I was in no mind set for doing anything but putting her in jail. Eventually ending the crazy conversation I went home furious, and full of anger. I then went on my journey of getting tested for HIV. I started by going to my primary physician and got blood work done for the disease and normal body level testing. Results came in and I was came out negative, I was told that Im completely healthy but was somewhat exposed to hepatitis b virus in my liver. I was then referred to an infectious disease specialist and I again had blood work done but this HIV test was more accurate and would for sure tell me if I was pos or neg . Again I was told negative but by someone who was not my referred specialist. At this point I am very stressed because I wasn't feeling well and I could slowly feel this disease affecting my body. Scared but focused I tried an HIV at home test that I did myself and a free HIV test at a non profit organization. And sure enough! both two came out negative. Now! I am completely terrified because I do not know where to turn. I really feel that I have this disease and I feel really sick. I want help but I keep being told by care physicians that I'm ok when I am not. I clearly have a fever,dry cough,pains, many more symptoms and all are ignored and dismissed. This is a nightmare for me because I've been seeking help and have received none.

My symptoms has progressed to joint/body pains. Constant skin inflammation and red rash under skin. I cannot eat anything. My whole life is ruined by this girl. I know exactly what you guys are going through. It is HELLLLL. No one should have to go through this. I know that there is HELP because the girl who gave me this was able to drink/eat and maintain a normal life. Whenever I talk to specific doctors and care physicians about my situation. I get the impression that they know exactly what going on and answer my questions very defensively. If there is no hope, then there is no hope. But I WILL figure out what's going on and EXPOSE IT TO THE WORLD.I am going to tell my story and push this as far as it can go to the most important people I know because I really feel like this is designed to kill/make the person infected go crazy. But I am strong and I know that if you are reading this, you are as well. I know that there are GREAT human beings suffering from this hellish std which is unexceptional. Making everyone you know aware of your situation may sound weary NOW but there is power in numbers awareness! The world will know what's going on here because all of us are NOT crazy. I send love to all enduring this hell.

Good luck with that. I tried with no avail. Truth is the government doesn't want to diagnose people like, us as it will only cost money in treatment and they are not worried about us spreading the virus, as clearly none of us are going to have unprotected sex again are we!

Hello fellows. Unfortunately I was tested positive. So I don't belong here ( I wish I did). Be strong with your battle, although I am not sure how I will face mine. I am devastated. I am so young ( 24 years old) and know everything is ruined. Ignorance is the deadliest of weapons and my situation was the perfect example. I just had a brief and shallow oral sex on a woman,which I thought was zero risk. Now I am doomed. Wish me luck guys, for I am going to need it. (Considering suicide).

Wing2015, thanks for your response. Unfortunately, in my country health insurance is not good and medicines are really steep, so I don't know how I am going to manage to afford them. Also, I haven't been doing good at job lately due to anxiety, so I am about to get fired, which will make my condition even more difficult. The thing that makes me sad the most is the fact that my parents, who are already old people, are going to have to take care of me and they will have to start working again so as to help me. This is what makes suicide sound like the best of options. There are two questions I have to ask you. 1) why governments don't warn people about the risk that cunnilingus poses, they only say " use a condom when having sex" but that's it, who knows how many victims have contracted this terrible disease due to ignorance such as in did. 2. I am sure that at least some of you know the website poz.forum, why do they state that cunnilingus is a zero risk activity? Many people get misinformed in this website.

For some reason, i feel like ypu are negative, i will keep you in my prayers brother. Even if you did test positive, keep calm, hiv-1 can be kept under control with meds and you will live a normal life.

just went through your posts, did you you get any symptoms such as sore throat? Mouth ulcers? Diarhhea? If No, then your symptoms doesnt really appear as ARS (atleast on what the doctors swear on).

Im the same brother, symptoms continuing, oral thrush, rashes here and there, diarhea, lymph pains, sweaty armpits palms and feets.
The penis biopsy they did to me, doctors are saying they didnt find anything, and all this weird rash is normal, when i asked them i didnt have it before my encounter, their response was it could be some type of unkown infection. What is it exactly they dont know. Im 100% sure its Hiv, to be specific Hiv-2.

Hi worstoflucks,
Yes I believe that people are misinformed in theses websites as I read a case of a guy on the internet who is similar to you and got hiv from oral sex (blow job). In my case I got the symptoms (believe it or not) from a womans hands who performed a hand job with slight anal massage so that I can have an erection (im not gay or anything but im taking damn psychiatrist medication which affect my erection). So in my case I believe im the first to get the horrible disease from a womans hands. Considering my symptoms, I can say they subsided now. My lymphocyte subset was as follows cd4 770 cd8 853 cd ration 0.9. Miraculously however in my last test the lympocyte subset was as follows cd4 917 cd8 660 cd ratio 1.38. So I dont how the ratio returned to normal. Anyways I hope worst of lucks that it's a false positive and dont worry in case you needed medication you can buy the medication from thailand were stribild is sold in the anonymous clinic for just 140 dollars amonth. I hope you the best and keep updating.

Hi everyone,
I got tested today and got a negative test at 23 months. I still have symptoms and eczema also troubling me. Just praying and knowing nothing is in my hand now.I'll just keep on testing for now. What about sickallen, nicelscu how are you guys? Good to hear about your result ttk123. Lots of Love to everyone here.

HI WorstOfLucks,
I think you are negative. Your symptoms are not consistent with HIV and you got your first symptom after 2 days. HIV ARS cant start that early. I know its tough but you need to go ASAP and a confirmation test or a RNA test to get the exact picture. I'm pretty much sure this might be something else. But in any case we are here with you.

This post is also a shoutout to all those who haven't updated their current status in a while. Please do update because it gives each other strength and motivation when they see you are still negative. So please all of those who have posted here in the past its a request please at least post once here to give us all an update about yourself and motivate us. Remember we might be oceans apart but this group is all we have where we can write our condition and issues and share with people who are going through something similar.
Regards

Scared1992, thanks for trying to cheer me up, the way I see it, my first symptom took place 2 days because the virus had already started to damage my immune system, however, it hadn't had enough time to cause a more severe damage therefore it was just a running nose without congestion, just mucus flowing.

I also encourage the other members to keep updating any new information that you have regarding to your diagnosis, new symptoms and anything else. Since only you guys know what you are going through, you are to support one another.

Finally, I forgot to provide you with some other symptoms inexperienced during the last week's and that I hadn't left you know because they are rather new: heath in my groin area, irritation in my anus, my body has shrunk, I don't mean losing weight, which also hapoened, I mean that, for example, a pair of shoes that used to be a little thigh, now are a bit loosen, my hands are smaller (a ring I'd a bit loosen), loosen stool.

Stay strong fellows.
