coz we know that the risk from HIV from the encounters was low

Chin,

NO! NO! NO! We know that you had NO RISK!

If you cannot accept you had NO RISK, then I suggest you seek the assistance of a mental health care provider to enable you to deal with your high levels of anxiety. We cannot do that for you here.

If you'd read the Welcome Thread like you're supposed to, you would have read the following posting guideline:

Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

Please consider yourself warned.

Gosh it just struck me that i forgot to mention in my first few posts :

During the deep anal fingering performed by the massage parlor girl, she was doing the fingering &  intermittently  licking her finger & using saliva as a lube so that the finger moved in & out smoothly. She had pretty long nails & i did feel she would have caused a cut in my anal opening since i did feel some pain after the fingering. Her nails did cause a tear, & thus a freshly cut area was there & her saliva from her finger would have surely touched the freshly cut wound. Now i could not see if there was any blood in the saliva, seems like there wasn't. When i wiped my anus after the fingering i did see a little bit of red on the tissue i used. I'm paranoid that i may have been affected from this, as i have heard that the anal region & the opening of the anus is pretty good source through which HIV could enter. what if she was HIV positive & had a high viral load. I've been having twitching in various parts of my body especially hands, it's a tingling in the arms & feet, fever & loose bowel & have still 2 weeks to go before the doctor will administer a test for me, Please advise, I'm scared" Please don't ban me, i wont post excessively, just that i forgot to mention this point & that's why i came back!!!!

in middle she had felt nauseated & had gone to loo to wash her mouth. & now i'm worried somethng would have come from deep within when she was nauseated & mixed with the saliva, either blood or mucous, i really don't know & infected me when it touched the cut that was inflicted on my anal region. is this possible?

I do not intend to post excessively, all i wanted to know is that whether this point of the fresh cut that was caused would have created a situation to contract HIV, when saliva possibly mixed with blood or something else would have come in contact with it. Please tell me if it's not the case atleast once & i promise i'l leave this forum if people believe i'm causing a nuisance.

I feel really alone.................Please understand!!!

Nothing you are reporting now nor that you have reported previously has put you at risk for HIV transmission.

Can we say it any more clearly than that.

Please don't come back with yet another but but but isn't it possible and what if. You have no cause to be worred about HIV risk at this point. Period. End of story.

Get on with your life and if you can't do that then get some professional help to address your emotional needs.

Hi People, Hope everybody's in good cheer.

Well i did go to a doctor ( neurologist ) to get my symptoms checked up & clear up matters in the proper setting as Andy had advised me to.

I was having light burning sensation & shooting pain (with pricking) in my fingers & feet especially. After the evaluation i've been diagnosed to have a painful neuropathy..which however i may add the doc said could be due to the stress i've been undergoing.

Now i'm not really questioning my HIV status here, after repeated assurances of not having a grave risk, but i really wanted to know whether painful neuropathy commonly occurs in people infected with HIV, i.e. along with ARS & then dies down quickly , only to return in the later stages?

I did read a few articles on the net which say that peripheral &/or painful neuropathy is a symptom of ARS in a small % percentage of people. That's why i'm concerned.

Also, is this sort of painful neuropathy often caused by stress?

A response would be deeply appreciated!

Your not paying one bit of attention. You didn't have a risk. You don't have HIV, so NO, if you have PN it isn't related to HIV. You don't have to have HIV to have PN. I've had this disease for 23 years and I've never had PN. You need to move on with your life and stay off the HIV websites or seek help with a mental health professional.

Thanx Rapid....Well I'm paying too much attention i guess. as i said i'm not questioning my status at all, was worried about the neuropathy, since i've never had these symptoms before. & when i read about this on the net, i was really scared, coz what was described, was what i was feeling..the symptoms i mean.

Lets keep HIV out of the way. Okay just from experience, could you tell me whether stress causes this type of painful neuropathy?

You really are the Real Hero, i wish you all the best!

Are you trying to tell me the doctor didn't explain anything to you? What did you visit him for, just to give him money? This is a website that deals with HIV, not anxiety or stress disorders. We can't help you with with anxiety or stress.

The doctor did explain everything to me & i've also started on the meds for it. However i just also wanted the opinion of the wise people here on this site since they have been a pillar of support to me. & i only wanted to make sure that the PN i'm having is not related to HIV in any way...that's all.

I've been really worried you see, & i'm sure stress is playing it's tricks on me. I even started worrying about this :

Now the BJ what the girl gave me was protected, the red pimple i saw, could that really have been blood instead, as in a bubble of blood from her hands or her mouth. The lights were dim & now i'm starting to feel it could have been blood, not a pimple....God knows, but i'm going crazy with symptoms!!!

& 2ndly in the encounter with the guy, whether there was any chance with the powdery white substance coming in touch/contact with my cut lip, when i licked the pubic region of the guy??


I've been having these shooting pains & from a link it did mention that PN happens in about 8% of people having ARS. However, i did hear that ARS symptoms do occur all together. In my case i've had symptoms , but they have been spread out & the only one that's been pretty annoying has been the neuropathy!

What part of "YOU DID NOT HAVE A RISK" is it that you don't understand? You have to have a risk to be positive and you have to be positive to have ARS. Only AFTER you are positive, can you look back and relate your symtoms to ARS, not before hand.

CF, cut the frabber jabber here. You can't have HIV-related PN when you are HIV negative and haven't had a risk for HIV. So stop trying to what if us with yet another twist of your scenario. We've heard it all and we know the signs of when someone is refusing to let go of an unwarranted concern. 

Whatever is going on with you has nothing to do with HIV. Period. End of story.

Get on with your life. You've gotten what you can get here. Really.
