higly risk activity and symptoms
« on: December 18, 2021, 06:02:21 am »
I M 53 YEARS OLD AND ON 23 NOVEMBER 2021 I HAD A VERY HIGH RISH HIV EXPOSURE WITH ONE INDONESIAN GIRL, WHO SINCE HER CHILD BIRTH IN 2013 NEVER CHECK HER HIV STATUS AND SHE IS IN GULF ON VISIT VISA SINCE 8 MONTHS AND HAD 2 BF BEFORE. DURING THE ACT , THE CONDOM SLEEP WHILE SHE WAS ON TOP AND AFTER 2 TO 3 MIN WHEN FINISH I PULLED AND NOTICE THERE WAS NO CONDOM. I AM WORKING IN GULF SO I CANNOT TAKE PEP, AS IT IS PROHIBITED AND UPON FINDING HIV ONE WILL BE DEPORTED. I JUST PRAYED HOPEFULLY SHE MUST BE NEGATIVE AND PRAYING THAT I SHOULD NOT GET SYMPTOMS. BUT EXACTLY AFTER 14 DAYS THE FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS APPEARED.
STARTED FEELING WEEK IN LEGS IN THE MORNING AND AT NIGHT FEEL LITTLE MILD FEVER AND NIGHT SWEAT.
FEELING CHILLS WITH MILD BODY AND JOINT PAIN SINCE 10 DAYS ON AND OFF
I CANNOT SIT IN AIR CONDITION AS FEELING CHILLS AND BODY HOT, BUT NOT FEVER, THE MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE GOES 36.9 ONLY. IN NORMAL ROOM TEMPERATURE NO MUSCLE AND BODY ACHES OR FEVER.
THE MUSCLE ACHES AND JOINT PAIN ARE ON AND OFF, SOMETIMES FEEL BETTER, SOMETIMES FEEL ACHY LIKE ARTHRALGIA.
I DID NOT GOT SORE THROAT OR RASH OR GENERAL SWOLLEN LHYMP NODES ON NECK OR GROIN OR ARMPIT.
I CANNOT GO FOR TESTING IN GULF AND MY MEDICAL IS AFTER ONE YEAR IN MAY 2023, SO MY QUESTION ARE

1.   I HAVE READ MANY SEROCONVERSION STORIES AND MOSTLY GET HIGH FEVER WITH JOINT & MUSCLE PAINS, SEVERE SORE THROAT, RASH WITH GENERALIZED SWOLLEN LYMPH NODES. SO IF I DIDN’T GOT RASH OR SORE THROAT . SO ONLY CAN ONE NIGHT FOR 1 HOUR GOT MILD FEVER WITH NIGHT SWEAT, MILD BODY ACHE AND CHILLS ON AND OFF FOR 10 DAYS CAN STILL BE SERO CONVERSION. I DINT TAKE ANY MEDICINE TILL NOW AND NOT STOP WORKING.
2.   YOU CAN FEEL CHILLS OR MILD MUSCLE AND JOINT  PAIN WITHOUT FEVER IN AIR CONDITION. BUT THE BODY GETTING HOT AND NO FEVER. 
3.   I CANNOT TEST IN GULF, BECAUSE IF ANYONE POSITIVE WILL BE DEPORTED IMMEDIATELY. MY MEDICAL IS IN MAY 2023, SO IF IN CASE ANY ONE POSITIVE, HE CAN SURVIVE UNTIL MAY 2023 WITHOUT ART MEDICINES BECAUSE YOU CANNOT BRING THE ART MEDICINES TO DUBAI.
4.   I LIVE WITH MY WIFE AND DAUGHTER AND HAVE ONE CAT. HOW CAN ANYONE PROTECT THE WIFE AND DAUGHTER UNTIL MAY 2023 BEFORE INFECTING.
5.   IF THE CAT IS IN FAMILY AND IF IT SCRATCH OR BITE SOMEONE HIV POSITIVE AND BITE ANOTHER MEMBER IS THERE ANY RISK OF TRANSMISSION.
6.   IF ANY HIV POSITIVE HAVE VERY BAD DENTAL HYGIENE LIKE BLEEDING GUMS & RECEDING GUMS, CAVITIES ETC,  HE CAN SHARE THE SAME GLASS OF WATER OR SAME SPOON WITH OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS OR THEY CAN EAT THE FOOD WITH SAME SPOON.

Hiya

Firstly stop writing in all caps, no need to shout and reading all caps gives me a pain in the head I could do without.

Anyhow, it was not a high risk it was just a risk and the only way to know your HIV status is to test, you can test at six weeks post-incident with a blood-drawn HIV antibodies test and a non-reactive result at that time will rarely ever change. Although generally not needed if you wish you can retest at 3 months.

You are asking how long you can live without ART if you are HIV positive? Well depends on when you acquired HIV as this incident was not your only risk, the strain of HIV and how much damage it does and how your body reacts, it could be as short as 18 months or as long as a decade before permanent damage is done or you pick up something causing death.

Regarding your symptoms, nothing you mentioned is HIV specific and some of it would have nothing to do with your HIV status. See your healthcare provider and treat whatever is making you sick.

When using drugs don't share syringes and use condoms to reduce your risk during sex. That's about it.

I'll mention the same thing I do whenever anyone mentions being in a sexual relationship. If you engage in condomless intercourse with your partner you are obviously at risk of acquiring HIV. Often within relationships, condomless sex is based on trust or past test results, however, this does not prevent HIV, and any condomless intercourse is accepting the greater risk of acquiring HIV.

Test more frequently for HIV & STI's if you do engage in any condomless intercourse.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions.

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get tested regularly and at least yearly for STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms and, the only way of knowing is by testing.

Kind regards

Jim
