First off, let me state that I am not here to instill fear in people who test at 3 months and do a "woohoo!!" I am simply here to state the facts of the progression of my testing and unexplained symptoms. There might be some people out there who are experiencing the same thing as me and can relate to the stress and anxiety I am going through. Please don't write me off as a paranoid liar troll or whatever. I'm just like anyone else.
I had an exposure last June with a TS. First timer - and bottom. I was very intoxicated and from what I remember it was protected. I was in and out of a blackout from drinking scotch. Some people call it time traveling. But... for argument's sake let's just say something happened and it broke or leaked or whatever. Who knows?!
Anyways, I was tested at 5 months with an ELISA and western blot back. Negative non-reactive.
Ten months post I did a rapid finger stick test - negative.
Eleven months post another rapid finger stick test - negative.
All good? One can only hope!
My symptoms to this day are listed:
- unexplained psoriasis outbreak all over my legs and arms
- Thrush, severe dry mouth, oral sores, possible OHL (waiting to see oral surgeon) but weird non painful white patches on side of tongue that don't scrape off.
- Night sweats lasted a week about a month ago
- Swollen lymph nodes
- No appetite at all
- Steady dry sometimes productive cough
- loose bowels
Let's face it, the only thing I got going for me is I haven't gotten the flu in a long time. (probably next week)
Okay after listing all of what's going on I still test negative on a rapid finger test. Should I do a more in depth testing procedure? Since most of those are symptoms of progressed HIV I should definitely test positive right? I mean, my blood would have formed antibodies by now if I was progressing like that right?
Anyways, thanks for listening.
