Hi Doctor,
I had unprotected sex 6 weeks ago and did a blood test on week 4 it shows that i am normal.
But i am experiencing muscle ache in my chest somewhere beyond the rib, my neck veins,below my jaw, arms, hand, backbone or sometimes when joint pain throughout the whole day.
A week ago i had a very bad cough until it kept on producing green/transparent mucus in my throat, this problem persist for a week seems like endlessly so i suspect myself from getting lung infections, i went to see the doctor and was given antibiotic.
The muscle ache is unexplainable whether is bone or vein pain. I took ecg and x-ray test and result shows that i am normal.
I am a very healthy young guy at the age of 20 and does not experience such pain* before that incident. I am definitely sure that these pain is caused by the unprotected sex. If this is not HIV, what can it be???

Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

HIV is diagnosed based on the serological detection in the blood samples. It is not diagnosed on the basis of nonspecific signs and symptoms.

Your symptoms described are not due to HIV. They could have resulted as a result of bacterial pharyngitis.

You can get adequate relief by taking OTC pain killers like ibuprofen, or tylenol.

I hope this helps.
