Just a quick question....After initial infection do symptoms keep lingering on and on.....Like lymph nodes and muscle aches....

howdy,

Symptoms, if they happen at all, happen sometime between two and four weeks after infection has taken place. They happen all at once and stop all at once. They don't come and go and they don't linger on. This is how so many people can be infected and not know until years later when they start getting very ill. Many people also never have one single symptom either at seroconversion or for years after.

Only testing will reliably reveal your true hiv status. Your test revealed that you are hiv negative. Protect your status by using condoms for intercourse, ever time, no exceptions.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

thank you very much Ann....So my first symptom was the famous white tongue....Then about 5 days latter I started developing all the other symptoms....That leads me to think it was not ARS if they come all at once, does this sound like a correct assumption...

Howdy,

You are conclusively hiv negative. How on earth could anything you're experiencing have anything to do with ARS? See your doctor about your concerns. You do not have hiv and there is nothing more we can do for you here.

I am sorry Ann... I was just curious does that sound correct, that the horribly white tongue comming on a few days before all my other symptoms would rule out ARS....

Howdy,

Your negative test rules out ARS. There's no point in talking about symptoms (or the lack of symptoms) anyway because they mean nothing.

It's time for you to move on.
