Guys dont worry.. Just becuase someones taking treatment in,there own body doesnt mean HIV wouldnt be detected in our body.. And please remeber this THE TEST WE ARE TAKING ARE TO DETECT THE ANIBODIES NOT THE VIRUS ITSELF. So at 3 months 97% of everyone will have conclusive results on there test. Im still dealing with the throat thing which is really starting to worry me.. Hpv, hsv, ? Unknown bacteria.. I dont know. I will continue working with my doctor and get tests done.. Im calling for my syhpilis results tommorow see what happend.. Everyone we have to trust tests and go by facts to figure this out..,stay strong

Thank you very much Depressedman. I've tested above six months, so HIV is off my mind and won't allow any thought of unproven facts put me in a stressful mode again.

Can anyone tell me if a PAP SMEAR can differenciate between bacteria and virus? My firlfriend had done a test a found some bacteria and was given medication.

Not bossy to say what's right
Just replying to the allegation that I am bossy - that's not the case. My congratulating someone on a three month HIV antibody test and advising against further HIV testing is standard practice, and NOT bossy - anyone else in any other forum will do the same.

My stopping people from continuing to test for HIV after three months and getting them to test for other infections is the ONLY WAY to get those people to find out what's really wrong with them.

Finally, those people wishing to use the blood supply to test AGAIN are wrong - anyone on any other forum will make the same statement, which again is NOT bossy. Donating blood to find out what's wrong with you is unethical, and technically illegal, not to mention the bad karma of passing whatever you have to innocent people. Once again, NONE of this is bossy.

I feel you dalton, I would seriously consider looking into hpv. I think this is what I have this throat thing is really scaring me. I got my MRI results back today everything was normal only thing I noticed it said was minimal moucosal thickening of the ethmoid sinuses. I looked at causes of this and it said sinus cancer is one cause, and looked at what causes sinus cancer and low and behold hpv is one of the causes. This is all starting to come together now. There are strans of hpv tat cause cancer. Here we are worrying about HIV when they have dozens of treatment for it anyway when in reality hpv is a lot more dangerous.

EVERYONE, if you are having throat issues and you performed oral on your exposure look into hpv this virus can cause a lot of problems.

Is anyone experiencing pain in their sides like the spleen and liver area, and find it difficult to sleep on their sides? Groin pain? Neck gland pain? Spine pain? Stiff neck? Lump feeling in the throat? Pains in the arm pits?

Guys I've been looking at the back of my throat with a flashlight for about the past 5 months now and it just dosent look right. It looks red and raw mucus in the back that won't go away,my tonsils have red patches on them, I see like gray patches in the back. I don't know guys i think this is an oral hpv infection and I don't know why the ent dr. Isn't noticing this. I'm really scared this is cancer I don't know what else this could be.

Ustas / AdviseMe,

The lump on my leg got so big a few days ago that it was the length of my thigh. After three days of antibiotics, it got smaller and it now the size of a hockey puck. I went to a hematologist today who is willing to treat me with Azacytidine if the HTLV test comes back positive and blood counts are abnormal. I should know in a few days what the tests say.

Adviseme, TonyDewitt,Depressedman,

Sorry for to hear about your harsh symptoms. I hope u'll all feel better soon.

I'm going to call my Dr today about my result.

When your tongue have teeth marks it's a sign of a virus in your system. I'm having that for months now. I'm also having constant pain in the Kidney region.

Guys, i wish we could turn back the hands of time.

yes, it was confirmed Depressed. I don't know if you guys have it, but not to long after all of this started 15 months ago. I started getting red spots under my skin, a little on my chest, more on my stomache, a few on my arms and legs. I don't know to much about HTLV, but correct me if I'm wrong, but the only thing that comes up for the signs of red spots under your skin is HIV. I'm hoping to have insurance at the end of this month, and hopefully I can get more tests done. Let me know if anyone else has gotten red spots under the skin

Ustas, DepressedMan,

Hope we could turnback the hands of time. Wouldnt have done this stupid mistake that has ruined all our lifes.
I received my HTLV test results over 2 months all negative.But i still have all neuro symptoms, blurred vision,constipation,muscle pain,blisters and weight loss.
That makes me still worried about HTLV.

My Doc is refering me to Neurologist for further tests in next weeks. Hopefully ill be able figure this out very soon.

Just left the doctors.. Getting meds for my throat and "allergies" I dont know if thats going to work. But il give it a shot, I dont wanna go against my doc. He already thinks im craxy.

Ive gotten 2 Hpv shots get my 3rd one in 5 months
I got my 2nd Hbv shot today I get my 3rd one in 5months

not knowingg whats wrong only puts extra fear and stress to everything. But all we can do is wait and let time tells us.

I need to find a clinic that does hsv 1 and hsv 2 tests.. Becuase most places only test if you have an open sore.

Ustas, how long has it been since your exposure? If its been over 6 months hep. B and hep.C should have shown up by now.

Tony, you do NOT have HTLV I'll bet your test result will be negative.

Depressedman, my tongue is to feeling sensitive like burning and tingling sensations that come and go, also get that feeling in my lips to. This could be herpes I to need to get tested for this as well. My ENT dr. Has given me Prilosec, I don't have heart burn, now he's got me on nasal spray and Zyrtec , not working still have the lump feeling in my throat. I think it's time for another dr.

Dalton ,sorry to hear about your diagnosis, but herpes generally dosent cause a lot of problems and if it does they have antiviral meds to treat it.

Guys, is anyone experiencing dry mouth, and dark eyelids and dark purplish color under their eyes?

I feel exactly like the title of this forum!
Scared49 my doctor has also put me on a nasal spray I dont think it helped but its only my 1st day., I know it not allergies ive never had this in my life.. All I keep thinking is if my 15 week HIV test was accurate or if I need to retest again. Im really losing it, im feeling sick everyday my girlfriend is still recovring from the swollen lymph nodes and now she has a sore throat.. And her meds made her break out in hives! Everyday is no better results, I feel like were sick, all the time! And I look for answers and HIV pops up!

Dalton, I havent had red spots under my skin, only dealing with wat my doc says is folliculitis for 3months now,

Scared49, I dont see no change in my eyes or eye lids, but I am also thinkn of switching doctor. im not getting no results in, my health

Depressedman, I've never had allergy problems either I feel like you I'm not getting any results on my health either. I see the ent dr. Next Thursday and if he dosent take a good look at my throat I'm going switch drs. We know something's not right and all these drs. Are saying is to see a psychiatrist what a bunch of B.S. I'm in the same position except I'm married and have 2 kids and I'm scared I've infected her as well. She's got an appointment on Monday with her gynecologist to get checked out. I'm praying everything comes out well. I've seen my neurologist he's done 2 MRI's now he's found nothing to be life threatening he said I asked him to test me for HTLV he said I didn't need to be tested for it. My urologist did a ultrasound on my kidneys found some cysts in my right kidney and said they usually don't bother them unless they give you problems. He also did a cat scan on my stomach with contrast and said it was negative and said my problem wasn't urological. I'm now being referred to a G.I. Dr. So I'll see what he has to say. I wish you all the best man try and be strong for you and your girlfriend and good luck to both of you I hope in the end it all turns out well for both of you.
