Lately ive been having sleep loss, just not tired at night, my nose has been running and ive been sneezing even when im not around my allergy and my skin on my hands is peeling, mainly after its came into contact with water, could this be a sign of hiv ?
other then ARS symptoms, like flu-like symptoms.
does anyone know how long it takes for symptoms like
diahreah, headaches, weight loss !!, dry mouth, swollen lymph nodes, tingling in fingers and hands, runny nose, sneezing randomly
all to show up ?
because ive been experiencing these symtpoms, and now im freaking out that what if when i got tested it was a false negative, or i did it too early ( i dont think i did?)
but these symptoms are making me second guess myself.
about 3-4 weeks ago, maybe iut was cause i was extremly worried, stressed, and anxious, or maybe cause my mouth was dry, i didnt have an appetite, i used to weigh 126, after that i weighed myself and i was 119 !! that made my face go white and that was just one of the main reasons i was so convinced i had it. i started eating better after that and now weigh 122.
Are these long term aids symptoms? or can these show up earlier.
iknwo but i dont gt it cause theres a lot of things that cant be "diagnosed" by symptoms.
like if u sneeze and stuff like that constantly around cats,theres a very good chance youre allergic to cats.
but it cant be "diagnosed" until u get an allergy test
Correct you are getting it now. An allergy to cats is diagnosed by a test. Because you sneeze around cats does not mean by default you have a cat allergy, it means you should test to see if you have a cat allergy. This test will determine whether you have or have not got a cat allergy, not the fact you sneezed.
In the same token because you experience what you believe to be symptoms of an HIV infection does not mean by default you have an HIV infection, it means you should test to see if you have an HIV infection. This test will determine whether you have or have not got HIV, not your list of symptoms.
HIV just like a cat allergy or any other medical condition you care to list (cancer, diabetes, etc.) is never diagnosed by symptoms they diagnosed by have an appropriate test at the appropriate time. A medical test rules a medical condition in or out NOT what you believe to be symptoms of that medical condition.
Even though you did not even need to test over your incident you decided to, appox 3 months later, and it was naturally negative. So despite your symptoms a medical test as unequivocally ruled out HIV. This is why HIV cannot be diagnosed by symptoms.
If you are now experiencing anything that is of concern you should go and see a doctor because you have as much chance of contracting a cat allergy as you have of contracting HIV from what you described.
