I'm really infected
« on: January 23, 2012, 01:02:55 PM »
First of all:
I mean I do not speak English and I am here to seek other opinions.
Andy told me that the symptoms do not specify anything.
He also told me that he is expecting a negative to me.
It is that I have 19 years and with this I've gotten sick from nerves and I'm like crazy all day.
My risk ratio was twice that semi penetrated a girl and was very fast.
The relationship lasted only 30 seconds maximum.
The problem is that I have presented all kinds of symptoms:
Joint pain
muscle pain
white tongue
sore throat
colds that come and go.
And so very many symptoms
The thing is I've been experiencing these symptoms 3 months so that other experts and doctors have said that primary infection could be because it has lasted long.

Excuse my paranoia, but I'm just a boy of 19 years and future father because of alcohol did not know what to
But thank God I stopped and after 30 seconds or even less.

Well I now I have to get my exams I do not have to lose another.
But I have a lot of fear because I am sure that will POSITIVE.

Sorry for all this but I'm very worried I have a tremendous depression, thinking that my life was all over by a fever.

Ann, RapidRo are saying?

Karim, I am locking this thread. You need to follow our rules and stay in your original thread in the Spanish-language forum.

There's nothing more to add in any language to what I said to you previously. There is nothing HIV-specific about any of your symptoms. If they persist you should discuss them with your doctor. You had a virtually non-existent risk. And so yes, I continue to expect to you to test negative.

Like every worried person who comes to the forums you're the one who is sure he's going to test positive. Except that I don't think you will. Stop all the drama, get tested and collect the inevitable negative result.

And stick to the Spanish forum in the future if you have anything further to say.

I am also going to warn you that if you continuing returning repeatedly over a minimal risk you will likely find yourself getting a Time Out from the site. Despite your fears, I don't see HIV as being a real problem for you.
