ARS symptoms 8 weeks after possible exposure?

Ok, this could be long. Here goes. Ok, one of my brother's friends had weed. He sleeps around alot, and wanted me to smoke some with him. We shared a blunt, where he had spit at the end of it. We also smoked out a bong and pipe. I was a noob at smoking the bong, and took in too much smoke, where the back of my throat burned and so did my sinuses and nasal passages. This guy had bad teeth with gingivitis. Well, 3 weeks later, my eyes began to hurt real bad. They were being pushed into the back of my head and burning.

Got diagnosed with cluster headaches. Set to see a neurologist. 8 weeks later, I have what I think is the flu. It started with a sore throat. Hurt to swallow. The sore throat went away in about a day, now it's just scrathy. I feel really weak, stomach hurts. What brought a little relief, was that my nose is runny and I'm sneezing. Got a little bit of a cough. I read that a runny nose, sneezing and coughing can distinguish it from ARS. This all started 8 weeks after smoking with this dude. I'm so scared. I can't eat, or sleep. All I can think about is this. It's like my life is on stationary mode. Can anyone give me an answer as to if I'm safe, and worrying for nothing? Others tell me "it's not possible," and some say it is. I mean, I'm a virgin... and have never used needles in my life. I'm just so worried

Re: ARS symptoms 8 weeks after possible exposure?

Ok in short you do not have HIV at all in any chance. HIV cannot be transfered via slavia, further more the air kills the virus third, for HIV to reproduce or live, it needs contact with blood etc. So the flu symptoms are just that

No need to worry at all, HIV has Never been transmitted like this.

Re: ARS symptoms 8 weeks after possible exposure?

you cant get hiv from smoking something or sharing drinks with someone.

the ways you get infected are
1. unprotected anal and vaginal intercoarse
2. iv drug use
3. transfusions and transplants (tainted blood)
4. mother to child
5. occupational accident

so if you did not make the list above
you cannot get it.
it is something that happens inside the body,
not outside as you are fearing
good luck

Re: ARS symptoms 8 weeks after possible exposure?

Hi there,

No, there is absolutely no chance you would contract HIV though the circumstances you describe. When people tell you it is not possible, rest assured it is true, it really is impossible.

Regards Kevin.

Ok, another thing... I forgot. He had a huge gash on his leg. It was bleeding constantly. I'm sure he touched it at one point. He used his fingers to break up the weed we smoked. Should I bee worried about that?

Hiya, still nothing to worry about at all. If HIV was that easy to transfer then we would end like the film legend . You still have no risk and nothing you say will change my opinion until you say you had unprotected sex
