I've been having symptoms for 14 weeks now.

Ok, I cam very concered that I have HIV so let me tell you my story.

I lived in japan for about 6 months and came home to europe about 8 weeks ago.

In japan, I was out very often to nightclubs/bars etc. I never did have sex with anyone or did anything else, but one night i met this woman from south africa. She was around 30 years old, white skin, and looked totally normal. She had lived in Taiwan as I understood most of her life, and had some kind of company/buisness etc.

Anyway I met her at a bar in Tokyo late night and we started making out. Later we went home to my place and continued making out. We went to my bed and she gave me oral sex WITHOUT condom. She did not want to have sex since she had period... BUT I got a condom on and we started having sex. I was very nervous and all the time asked her if she had any sexual diseases or anything, but she said no. And even though I've had a couple of beers, I kept looking at the condom so it was on during the whole act. We had sex maybe for about 5-7 min. Then when I took it of I noticed it was covered with her blood, but we just laughed at it. Then I threw it away.
She told me she would leave in the morning, and so she did. After I woke up she was gone. But my friends who live in tokyo met her some weeks ago in a tokyo bar, and my friends said she was cool and seemed intelligent...(?)

Ok so during the time we had sex I already had a sore throat since like 3 weeks before we had sex. But anyways about 1 week after the sex I went to a swimming pool and REALLY messed my health up, ending up having pneumonia(?). I was diagnosed with it at a private clinic and they gave me lots of medicine, but never antibiotics. I was really ill for about 1-2 weeks but I wasn't to good at taking my medication regularly.

Now today it has passed exactly 15 weeks since we had sex. (I've been counting cautiously). After my pneumonia period in Tokyo I've never really gotten out of the disease/virus and I've never felt perfectly healthy for the 15 weeks. Before I went back to Europe from tokyo i sometimes got EXTREMTLY tired during the evening at like 06.00 PM. It was very weird so I went back to the clinic and they told me it could take time to recover from the pneumonia, the disease was still in my body so they have me more medicine. Now around 8-9 weeks ago I came back to europe. I remember on the flight from tokyo that I was feeling extremly much pain in the neck and the lymph stuff...(glands?) After I got back to europe I got food poisoned immidiately and since then I've been having light(sometimes heavy) nausea, pain in the neck/lungs/back...but never fever or anything else.

And these symptoms just friggin go on and on and on...Right now I have a light nausea, and earlier this week I had extreme pain in the neck. It's usually gone in the morning and then starts getting worse as I get closer to the evening. I did altough have a period of full healthyness about 2 weeks ago for a week of time...but then it messed up again.

I tested myself for HIV 6 weeks, 9 weeks and 13 weeks after the sexual intercourse with the south african girl. All the tests showed negative. I've been to doctors and they all say that I just have a serious Virus infection that will go away... They never give me antibiotics or any medicine at all. I guess they will find out what was wrong with me when I will be in my coffin.

I am NOT a hypokondric like everyone believes...I rarely get sick....but there's something wrong with me...I can feel it. I'm 20 years old. Thank you

Re: I've been having symptoms for 14 weeks now.

Doesn't sound like you have hiv at all. In no way you have any risk, and your negative test is also conclusive. Maybe some kind of viral infection I guess.

Re: I've been having symptoms for 14 weeks now.

yes I hope I don't have HIV... oh yeah recently I've been having really sore throat and coughing...and when I wake up my eyes are sometimes alittle bit "glued together", like an eye infection or something :S I went to the pharmacy today and they said that it was still my pneumonia spooking around and that I should get antibiotics immidiately...

Also I have a new girlfriend and last night my condom fell off and I came inside her...I am so afraid!

Re: I've been having symptoms for 14 weeks now.

still! I have pain in the neck and light nausea, I am currently on an antibiotic cure, it helped the first 3-5 days, now its pretty usual again with pain/stifness in the neck. This is creeping me out! I tested negative for HIV again at about 15-18 weeks after my meeting with the south african girl. They kicked me out of the clinic now saying that I really DONT HAVE HIV. So I have now been tested 4 times and I am negative all the times.

Re: I've been having symptoms for 14 weeks now.

stop chasing your symptoms and equating it to being infected with hiv.
you cannot possibly do that, the only sure way to know your status is by testing only and your tests say you are negative!! symptoms can be easily confused and thats what you are doing,believe in your tests they are very accurate and the only thing you should worry about in reguards to being infected with hiv. btw the encounter you discribed is considered very low in risk so there is more that backs your test up!
good luck

Re: I've been having symptoms for 14 weeks now.

Also I am waking up with such a disgusting taste in my mouth...sometimes I get up white bacteria or whatever it is...and it's that taste I have in my mouth all the time!

I've been to doctors so many times now and I am currently under watch of a very good doctor, but NOBODY knows what is wrong with me. All the tests they are doing are perfectly fine. I am now considering a hospital to get some serious testing done, because I really feel weird.

And I am so young...I've NEVER had problems with my health earlier. Maybe this **** is just some other CRAZY virus I got from japan...I don't know.

But anyways guys thanks for support and tips.

CHRIST! It's 01.00 AM now and my neck hurts SO EXTREMELY MUCH!

Some people are starting to believe I might have a parasite from Japan or something... I will report back here when someone finds out what is wrong with me!!!

Re: I've been having symptoms for 14 weeks now.

I had the same neck pain and white tongue with fatigue and muscle pain...

I had the symptoms for exactly 8 weeks and most of it disappeared...

Its gone now, and the doctors don't know what it is...

YET my Complementary "C4" came back low, which means there's an autoimmune response/inflammation...



Let me know how you are...

I am dying to know what this mysterious virus-like illness is too!!!


I called the infectious institute i and they said it could be a cat scratch; its more than that....

Re: I've been having symptoms for 14 weeks now.

Hi! I recently tested for HIV -AGAIN- passing the 6 month mark and still negative. So I think I've released the thought now...

Nexis, yes I've been feelin really weird too! I STILL feel sort of weird. The pain in my neck... It's been like friggin 6 months now since I started feeling **** in Tokyo. A little bit better though, im so used to it right now that I dont even mind it.

But recently I discovered these white "chumps" of bacteria in my throat. It's like rice being stuck in my throat or something. It stinks. I stick in the other end of my toothbrush and I "squeeze" this **** out. The white "chumps" are hiding behind skin flakes or something in my throat, so I have to work a little bit.

But recently I felt as lots of the white "chumps" fell out in my throat and i swallowed it. For like 20 minuites i felt LIKE I WAS REBORN. Start of a new life! It was so crazy. All my pain and stiffness in the neck went away.

Then it came back. And I got one really big one stuck on my left side that I cant get out. It has a feeling like one grain of rice stuck in your throat. It was almost almost coming out (I couldnt see it though with my flashlight), but now it went in deep again...

The doctors say that this simply is food or something that comes in somehow and bacteria feed on this. They say it isn't dangerous or anything, just to leave it. But this **** may be the cause of all my symptoms...and Antibiotics didnt help against this because the "chumps" dont sit IN my body...they are on the outside "atached".

Talking about viruses...I remember in my japanese class that one girl from thailand had some terrible disease, virus I think, had to go to hospital and quit class etc... I don't know... maybe I got something from her.

I've never had white tongue though...just as white as everyones.

Looking forward to your answer

Re: I've been having symptoms for 14 weeks now.

I think its better if you go to a larger hospital that can diagnose the virus....

The doctor found that there's an Autoimmune response in my body... The test is called the Complementary "C3" and "C4"....


I have the throat clumps all my life on and off, and I think it happens when there is an infection in the body...


I highly doubt you have HIV too, yet are many people both foreigners and Natives that are undiagnosed or don't get tested because HIV/ AIDS is such a taboo topic, and sex trafficking and unsafe sex is common here...

Have you tried calling the a Infectious disease Center in your city and asking them what your symptoms may be???

A viral infection can take time to recover from so stay positive...

Do what ever you can too feel better, and see a doctor who can treat you properly..

Re: I've been having symptoms for 14 weeks now.

I will call an Infectious disease Center tomorrow.

My doctor now says that it can't be virus since it's holding me so long. But I am so sure that it is some virus because I have a general feelin of sickness.

I will report back when they talk with me at the Infectious disease Center.

Re: I've been having symptoms for 14 weeks now.

did you get tested for mono or menengitis or syphilis. the stiff neck sore throat and nausea and tiredness are all factors in that... might be a suggestion for your doctor. they know what they are doing, but are human.

Re: I've been having symptoms for 14 weeks now.

Those white "chumps" are called tonsiloths! I read about them before. They are made of food particles and bacteria that build up behind your tonsils. Maybe you have a tonsil problem??? But I am pretty sure a doctor would detect that. Maybe you need stronger antibiotics. It could just be a bad bacterial sinus infection. Or you could have a bodily candidia(yeast) overgrowth? No clue... just naming some random conditions that sometimes cause mysterious symptoms. Have you had all your sinuses ct scanned? Have you been to an Ear Nose and Throat specialist?
