Hey dalton, you know I wonder the smame thing they say these tests are so sensitive and accurate and are able to detect HIV early but who knows. I just dont understand I've had every symptom you can think of that lines up with HIV my wife as well but yet negative tests I'm just wondering if we're the rare ones that's gonna take 6 months or longer to produce antibodies. I'm completely lost here guys I'm so burnt out over all this I dont know what to do anymore. It's like you know something's not right with your body, but just go on everyday thinking well the tests are negative so you to Try to believe it but deep down you just can't because of all the symptoms.


Hey uk_worry, still pretty much at a loss for words, I'm just gonna start working with my doctor to try to figure this out. Good luck everyone and god bless.

I understand that Scared, but I'm way past the 6 months mark. My last test was at 13 months, but me and my wife still keeps getting symptoms of hiv. I've looked up every symptom for all the std's, and there's only that matches my symptoms, and that's hiv only. But then you have to ask yourself, how can we have all these symptoms of hiv and yet not have enough antibodies to detect hiv. It doesn't make any sense. I just don't think that they know much about the test or hiv like their trying to make us think. That's my opinion

Started off with really deep kissing, then started protected oral sex but condom came off so she continued for quite some time with out condom. I was really really drunk so I can't remember it all clearly I performed oral on her as well had to be less than a minute I tried to penetrate her but I was so drunk I couldnt stay erect long enough to but my penis was rubbing her vagina heavily from me trying to get it in. Finally I gave up and left once I started sobering up and realizing what I was doing was the most STUPID thing I've ever done in my life, I just can't believe I let myself get into that kind of a situation I feel like a an absolute looser.

Hey dalton, at 13 months your are absolutely negative. I know what you are saying but unless you have a severely depleted immune system, on chemo for cancer, iv drug user, or transplant recipiant, which I doubt you are then you have to accept the test result. Trust me I feel EXACTLY like you. Man I'm just trying to get to that 6 month mark or 26 weeks, I have an 18 week negative Im just praying it dosent change over the next 8 weeks. I don't understand this either you have an exposure get every sytom of HIV but continue to test negative I'm completely lost here. Just hang in there man we'll figure this out sooner or later.

I'm not really sure casper. I thougt I had an idea, cause I was thinking I had candida thrush, cause I'm getting a lot of those symptoms too, but it doesn't cause your lymph nodes to swell. So, I'll be getting somemore tests done. I know it's been almost 14 months since I had unprotected sex, but I'm still going to have my 6th hiv test done. I just want us all to find out what's wrong. I've even had dreams off and on all last year, and some of this year of having hiv, so I don't know what's all that about. It's driving me crazy tho.

I'll check on that man. I really want to stop thinking about hiv. It's just now it's getting harder for me to work, cause it's affecting with my knees bad. It feels like behind my knee swells, but I know it's not. I still get tingle feeling in my hands and feet. Every so often my toes get red and burns. It's just that I looked up a lot of things acept what you said, and all the symptoms point to hiv. For some reason, the sides of my neck, and upper chest get red, but it don't last. my throat even feels like my sinuses keep draining, but I know it's not, and my neck gets stiff alot. Like I have a pinch nerve in my neck down to my shoulders, but I don't. What do you think?

Dalton,i have similar symptoms to what you are suffering from,"BUT IN MY CASE":my throat is sore for the last 5 months at least "white spots comes & goes on my tonsils",my lymph nodes in my neck is swollen for the same period of time"5 months",i keep on getting ulcers,patches,spots on my tongue,cheeks from inside,all my mouth in general,i have pimples on my face"weird pimples on my cheeks from outside",i keep on getting red areas on my body ( comes & goes ) all the time..
it's all happened after the exposure (FOR A REASON ) but this reason is not HIV,i'm over 6 months man,so u r , i agree with you that we have something wrong (virus or bacteria or whatever)on our body,BUT IT IS NOT HIV FOR SURE,,Smile thank god.
i'm looking all the time man , i find some stuff like CMV,EBV,HPV,HCV,HBV,the list is long man,we have to be rational in our way of thinking Dalton ( IT IS NOT HIV ) believe me Brother,
yesterday i take anothe test for (Hep B,C) wish me good luck man,i wish you all the best to find out what is this

Casper, could it be possible that they could be wrong about 6 month testing for hiv, could it take longer, and could it be possible the the tests are not accurate as they think? I know when it first hit me, it started bothering my sinuses real bad, and gave me headaches that I've never had before, and I noticed that I was having bowl changements, and still is. My nose feels like it's stopped up all day, everyday. Pains in my groin, neck, armpitts. My nerves just has been acting up, sores come and go on the tip of my tounge, pains in elbows, knees feet,and a whole lot more symptom's. It's getting to me mentally. I just don't know what to do. Let me know what you think.

First Of All,THEY CAN'T BE WRONG ABOUT 6 MONTH TESTING man,i'm on medhelp.com since last September 2011,everyday & night,there is thousands like US,BUT never "I MEAN NEVER" turn positive after their 3 months tests actually,nothing at all called more than 6 months for testing"indeed 6 months is an old myth,now it is 3 month only since 2004 man"(8 whole years) Smile
Second Thing,the tests are Accurate&Sharp Dalton,as is told you I've been watching millions of cases since a long time,all having the same symptoms,all negative results at the end,BUT the test is accurate man , i'm sure of that,when it comes positive"IT IS POSITIVE"when it comes negative"IT WILL BE NEGATIVE FOR EVER"not going to change again,
here in this topic ( all of us mostly have the same symptoms,with a negative test results all the time ), we should keep on working together to find out what is it (Which is not hiv for sure),i just did hep b,c test man & waiting for the results,also we should think about CMV,EBV,HPV maybe it is one of those things,
most important is to try to decrease\get out of the anxiety because it just increase\help the symptoms to grow up,
best of luck man for all o us

Hey casper. do you have problems with your knees, and elbows? I know that I've been having a lot of problems in my knees and elbows, but mainly in my elbows, It starts from my elbow, and goes all the way down to my hands and fingers. It like tingles and a warm sensation. I get like needle feeling in my left shoulder, sometimes it hurts so bad that it feels like I got stabbed with a needle or something. There's got to be some kind of answers out there on what we're going thru, and why it hasn't showed up.

Hey friends, Casper congratulations on your test that's excellent very happy for you. You can be sure now HIV is not your problem thank god. I'm glad I could be here to offer some advice for you and support. Just hang in there man your gonna be fine.

Hi jr79, welcome. This sounds like herpes my friend, I would retest for hsv1 and hsv2 as soon as you can. All your other symptoms could be related to other random viruses or anything. Also ask this girl how recently she's been checked for HIV or any std's, you have that right you know this is your health were talking about here. Test for hep b and hep c also, I would wait about a month or so just retest for everything just to be safe I hope this helps and best of luck to you.

than you for replying scared49.
but can really herpes cause numbness on legs feet and hands mostly on legs and feet they come and go..joint pain on knees only come and go as well. and that severe abdominal pain only on left side right under chest?? those are the 3 main symptoms really and a little bit of sore throat. but i will test again on the last day of this month. i did all test of hep b and c hiv all stds came negative the first month.. i have suffer from anxiety and panic attacks since i was in high school but the symptoms im experiecing never experienced before. they only thing that eases my mind is that i dont have diarrea vominting or swollen lymph nodes anywhere. i just feel like weak energy running through my blood and have a little bit of chest pain when i search for symptoms online.. i was thinking bacterial infection or any bacterial infection?? i did the spitting test at home in a cup of water and went down looking like spider legs bunch of them?? thank you for reading and helping me out... im too scared to test positive for hiv..

Hey jr79, herpes can cause joint pain, I was more thinking herpes because of the bumps and rash you were talking about. Also if your under a lot of stress and anxiety about this it can cause a lot problems to your body look it up. Have your doctor test you for a yeast infection to they cause a lot of problems as well. Do your tests again at the end of the month,they will be negative and conclusive.

Best wishes,

I really appreaciate you writing back, Makes me feel better thank you. I took some multivitamins from gnc and it actually made me feel a lil better. The abdominal pain has gone away, not completely but almosst there . numbness and joint pain as well i used to get numbed on my feet leegs and sometimes hand like 6 or 7 times a day. now im barely feeling like twice a day but not extreme like before.. the only problem right now is i have a dry and sore throat. i have pulsing sensations all over my body and still feeling kind of weak especially when im about to go to bed im not getting alot of sleep only like 5 or 6 hours. i wake up in the middle of the night for no reason.. also skin getss red really fast like when im get out the shower and dry myself with the towel only from my waist up and goes away in less than a minute. i just never experieenced this before and it makes me nervous.. if it was yeast infection but since it was cleared already can i still have it in my body?? and yes im going this month to get tested again hope everything comes out well.

You know I've had every symptom you've described and then some. I still have dry mouth most of the time and my saliva is thick and sticky especially when I go jogging. If you have a candida infection you will probably need to get treatment for it I don't think it will go away on its own. Good luck on your test results in a couple of weeks, just keep working with your doctor I'm sure your HIV NEGATIVE my friend god bless.

Hey Guys!

Hope u didn't think for a minute that i left this forum. My internet went down for over a week and its today my service provider came in and fixed it.

I'm happy for all the NEGATIVE HIV results. That's how it should be. CONGRATULATIONS Scared49, Jasper, Jr79, Dalton76 and everyone else.

Jr79, it seems u and i have somethings in commom. Hope we didn't meet upon the same girl. Joint pain, diarrhoea, abdominal pain on the left side only, numbness. It is possible that its HEPATITIS B or C. I was tested negative after 3 months. I'm still worried about that, cause they say it can take up to 6 months to produce detectable antibodies.

Thank god all my symptoms are clearing slowly.. no more abdominal pain. numbness is getting much better just experiencd it twice today.. and joint pain as well.. the only thing right now is my arms they feel weak like if poison was running through my veins Sad hope its my anxiety acting up and nothing serios.. i hope we all get out of this thought of thinking you have something cuss its been hell for me all this past days waiting for time to pass by and get tested again.

jr79, This thing seems to afect the left side of our system. I remember one day i decided on jogging of my problems, so i did. On the first day, i felt a little pain in the left side of body, so i had to stop earlier than i use to. On the next day i tried jogging again and the pain got more severe, so i stopped. From that day until now, i haven't done any excercise, cause i don't know what is happening to me.

Jr79, the burning, numpness, abdominal pain, joint pain, all are on the left side of my body. The other day my right eye was hurting for about two days, so that break the cycle of the left side.

Something is wrong inside my body, i know, but no one know what it is. I know i have an excellent immune system, so if its not compromised by my anxiety, i should be able to clear the 'claerable' ones from my system. Things are not so bad these days but its still a problem.

Jr79, be strong. We are like links to a chain. We all need each other here for emotional support. Have to commend ehealth for this forum.

I'm off to work now, talk to you guys later.

I also talked to the girl i had sex with and she is CLEAN from everything but she also developed a high fever 2 times in the first two weeks. so im kind of freaked out again. Now im worried only about the stripper worker back on dec which was only oral sex. took the test 14.5 weeks later and was negative im really nervous that it might change.. All my symptoms have cleared and faded away. i now only have the pulsing sensation symptom only at times throught my body that only last for about 1-2 seconds and go away like if my blood was reacting to something most of the time when i am relaxing. and sore dry throat that is it. my energy is kind of back now and im enjoing life a little better than before when i had whole bunch of symptoms. What do you guys think?? if it was yeast/candida infection since i had on my penis but rash went away and has been cleared can i still have it inside my body without any visible rashes ?? thank you all for reading.

Not sure but did you guys get tested for herpes?? This sounds like it could be herpes too. The test is not included in an STD panel like HIV/AIDS. You have to ask for it. Most people do not know that. Try and test for that to see if your symptoms could be due to something other than HIV/AIDS. With herpes you could get it in your mouth, on the lips, genitals, muscle aches, fatigue, flu like symptoms, chills, fever and weakness of muscles. You can also get tingling in hands and feet. They are symptoms that are indicating you are having an outbreak.
