Can you get esophagitis 23 days after infection?
« on: August 09, 2007, 07:22:54 PM »
Hello all
to be brief, I had a protected encounter with a transsexual on june 28th, I was the bottom. I wasnt sure if there was slippage.
Anyway, 23 days later, I had a  soar throat and a week after soar throat was there with chest pain. I had some whiteness on tongue too.
I checked online and read about candida esophagitis and was thinking thats what I might be having during seroconversion.
I am going to test again  soon but I need to know how likely can I be infected and have candida esophagitis?
I did visit my physician and was told I have a sinus infection, but I am still very worried my worries might be true.
Any advice might be appreciated.

Thank you,

Sal

Sal-

By "slippage" do you mean that she wore a condom? Please be more specific about your risk so we can do a good assessment.

Yes, she was wearing a condom and when we were finished, she took it off infront of me and I filled it with water to make sure there wasnt any breakage.  I still have a soar throat and some chest pain till now.

Symptoms are useless in determining HIV infection, Sal.

It sounds as though the condom did its job and you were protected. Follow up with a doctor to see what might be the cause of your sore throat and chest pain, as it is not HIV related.

I do have to add a comment though. 10 weeks before I tested, I performed unprottected oral on a male that told me he was hiv negative. But I tested negative on that test and I ruled that encounter out .

While it's true that anybody can get thrush- with or without HIV- it's always been my understanding that esophageal thrush is an opportunistic infection that tends to strike once t-cells are already particularly low.

And as somebody who has had esophageal thrush, I tell you it's more than just a sore throat.

Brent's right:  this isn't HIV related. 
AIDS isn't for sissies.
