Hey uk_worry, did you test for hsv1 and hsv2 yet? Armpit sweating can deffinately be caused by stress and anxiety.

Everyone, look up CANDIDA it's a yeast that can do a lot of things to your bodies orally,gastric and also to your joints. This is common in people with HIV but also perfectly healthy people can get it. I read this forum one time a guy was certain he had contracted HIV because he caught a yeast infection from a girl. The girl apparently had a yeast infection and didnt know it or didn't bother to tell him. He performed oral sex on her and caught a yeast infection in
his mouth known as oral thrush. So having oral thrush he was certain he had HIV but like all of us here he kept testing and all were negative. So read about candida and have yourselves checked for that also just a thought guys.

hello Scared ,,, i think CANDIDA is a good idea ,BUT,how can we get tested for it,
Guys,shall we get tested for a specific things like (HSV (1,2) . HPV , CMV , EBV , Hep (b,c),CANDIDA) shall we ask our doctor to test US , or we should just follow the instruction & listen to them , try to end this anxiety.
guys i'm almost breaking-up with my GF,because i'm sure that she gave me something while in the other hand all her tests are Negative,
the problem is that if i got a HIV test & it came back + i will get deported from here,which will be a miss in my life,but my GF take a test every month since last September 2011,
thanks Scared for the Hep B&C advice , i already did that b4,all negative.

but the dr. told me that it can take a year or longer for hiv to show up...I've been going thru this for 13 months now, and evertime my tests came back negative. Now it's working on my nervious system, making my hands and feet tingle. Behing my left shoulder has a burning sensation, and my shoulder itches. I also now break out on my shoulder's, upper back, and stomache. It looks like a rash, but it don't last long. The pains in my abdominal don't bother me like it use to. If it's not HIV, then what is it? I figure that if we get the symptoms, then HIV should be very active. The only thing that I can think of is it possible that the HIV test is not accurate like they think it is? I've had the blood test, and the oraquick tests. This month will be 14 months since I've had unprotected sex, but whatever it is I have spread it to my wife.

please listen to Uk_worry & quickly go and change your doctor,because (again)he DON'T KNOW WHAT HE IS TALKING AT ALL,
12 months is the maximum period since 2004,which is 3 months exactly,some doctors say 6 months (this was before the 3rd generation tests)they don't know what they are talking about & their information are outdated.
in your doctor case, NO COMMENT

I know Casper, I just don't understand how we can have almost all the signs of hiv including nerve, and tingling problems and yet come up negative. I have thrush, canker sores, and all the other symptoms of hiv, but still negative at 13 months. I just don't understand whatelse it can be. This sucks

Hi all

it is very strange all of you ,they did a test and came back negative ,there is no any doubt that all of you negative but you are still thinking of HIV,very strange,so go and live your life ,never search again for HIV symptoms ,HIV after 3 months will be asymptomatic at least for 5 years,so if any one have it should be asymptomatic,i am the only one who had risk and i didn't test yet.and maybe i will never do it.coz if i am positive i will loose everything so it is better for me to not know my status.

Scared49, i've tested negative for Hep. B&C at the 3 months mark.

My right eye is the problem. Yesterday it was ok and today it act up again.

muhamad, i think u should get tested. You losing EVERYTHING is not as important as your LIFE. The earlier you know, the better it is for you if u chose to go on medication. HIV is no longer my problem because i was tested negative after 6 months. I got tested for HIV about 9 times, each costing me $1,500, but guess what?....it gives me peace of mind.

I'm negative for....
1-HIV 2-Hep. B&C 3-Gonorrhea 4-Syphilis
5-Arthritis 6-Chlamydia

My girlfriend did a pap smear a few weeks ago and she was not diagnosed with any STD/STI. The only thing that puzzle me is the fact that her gynecologist said there were some abnormal bacteria found. She is now on meds to clair it up. She said the Dr, said i dont need treatment.

Hello everyone,

Hey Dalton, please listen to uk_worry and Casper change your doctor right away he obviously knows nothing about HIV, 13 weeks is conclusive PERIOD! I know this but the reason we all keep testing is because of fear, anxiety, and piece of mind. Trust me and everyone else here we all have the symptoms but keep testing negative the only thing I can tell you man is believe the test. Ive read countless days and nights on Med Help forums the EXPERT DOCTORS Dr. H.H.H. And Dr. Hook say SYMPTOMS MEAN NOTHING when it comes to HIV.

Hey Casper, ask your doctor about candida if you think you might have it look it up,he'll be able to test you to see if you have it.

Muhammad listen to Ustas and get tested don't drive your self insane like me and everyone else here it's better to know so at least you can take better care of yourself an possibly not infect someone else if you did have it which I hope and pray you don't.

Ustas deffinately get tested for hsv1 and hsv2 they also cause a lot of symptoms. Also I would recommend testing for hep b and hep c in a couple of months just to be sure. Eye sensitivity to sunlight and other bright lights is a symptom of hepatitis good luck.

Thanks Casper, I'm really trying to let this go I'm gonna test out till 26 weeks though just to be sure I know it's being over conservative Casper I just need that piece of mind. Something in my mind just won't let me completely let this go yet. I know 18 weeks should be conclusive but I read a lot of people on here testing way beyond what I have. You can't blame me for just wanting to be sure. This has just been one hell of an experience.

Also to everyone, I know this might sound crazy BUT has anyone ever thought about the possibility of toxic black mold exposure? It's a very common mold found in our houses, and can make you very sick. Look it up guys I'm serious check out the symptoms and tell me what you think it's just a thought guys I'm trying to figure this thing out.

God bless everyone,

I know that I need to let this thought go of having hiv. All I know is that I donhave some kind of bacteria, cause I still have this thrush and sores going on in my mouth, and my bones, mucle's, still ache, and I still have problems with my throat, and nerves. I just hope and pray that whatever we're all going thru, I just hope that they'll find it. We've all been suffering way to long over this. We've lost a lot of time with our lives worring over this. We just need to do whatever it takes to get our lives back, and start thinking about the future, cause we only get one chance of life. What we lost, we can't get that time back. Whatever it is that we're going thru, God will help, and see us thru it. The devil will throw things in our way to slow us down, and to discourge us. That's when God comes in and take away what the devil gave us, and throws it back in his face as long as he believe in Him and His word.....God Bless all you

I do have a question. How can you get candida? Cause I looked it up, and most of what I'm getting is leading to that. It also causes thrush, bad colesterol, blood pressure, night sweats, sore throat, earaches, memory loss, and a bunch of other things. I haven't been tested for that yet, but how do you get it? I saw online that antibiotics can give it to you, but I don't know, please let me know.

Dalton, I feel the exact same way I couldn't agree more. I still have the same symptoms as you the thrush in the back of my throat, my mouth feels dry a lot, irritated soar throat for months now, muscle and joint pains and the list goes on. I'm like you if it's not HIV it's definitely something. Also your question about candida, anyone can get it it's a fungal yeast infection. If not treated it can spread all through out your body and eventually get into your blood stream which can be fatal. Antibiotics can cause oral thrush, diabetes, cancer, other medications, certain mouth washes, age, usually the elderly, but anyone can get a candida infection. Everyone has a certain amount of candida in their bodies which is kept in check by the good bacteria in your body, but when your immune system is weekend that's what causes the candida infection to grow and spread through out your body. I hope this helps.

Casper, it's not stupid and dumb to want to know its actually smart, and nothing is gonna happen to you man cause I know in my heart YOU ARE NEGATIVE trust me. Congrats to your girlfriend for all the negative tests. I truly wish you the best of luck on your test result which will be negative, keep us posted.

That's the problem Scared, I think I might have it, but I have no money or insurance right now to get that test done. When I looked up the symptoms for that, I have went thru a lot of the problems they were talking about. I never knew that it could cause that much problems inside, and I also found out after it already happened to me, but it also said that it attacks your gut and other parts inside. Well, about 2 weeks ago I left work early cause I was having real bad pains in my gut and other places and the pain almost brung me to my knees, but now I'm stuck until I get the money or insurance. I have a prescription for my thrush, but no money to get it filled......Muhamad, your problem maybe bigger than we cam imagine, but trust me friend, your problem isn't bigger than Him. For He can help us out of everything. Jesus paid the ultimate price at Calvary. You just have to believe, and go to Him in prayer. He took the stripes on His back for us to be healed. I'll keep praying for all of you, and God Bless

well, I don't think that I have candida. Cause I looked up all the symptoms for it, and yes I've been getting some symptoms of it, but the one thing that I've been getting is not listed for candida thrush and that is swollen lymph nodes. So I don't know what to do now. I'm going to get another hiv test done as soon as I can. Does anyone know what happened to Soc3r? Is it possible that some hiv can be hard to detect or take a long time for antibodies to show up on the test, and maybe they don't know about it or heard of something like that happening? cause whatever is going on with us, there has to be a lot of other people out there that it's happening to as well.
