Negative tests still feeling ill

Hi all

Hope you are doing good yourself and thank you for having a look at my my post

My risk
Broken condom while having a greatly irritated skin around my penis with a commercial sex worker in a country with a really high hiv percentage
My irritated skin was not a std
Commercial sex worker tested negative on I think a hiv duo test the day after

3 weeks later
Unprotected oral sex both ways while having a frash abrasion on my penis because of the condom use during the protected sex
Had a extremely dry mouth while having unprotected sex both ways
I felt fine at that time

Complaints
The weeks after the unprotected oral sex
Rash on my face and chest
Confirmed swollen lymphnodes in neck armpit and groin up to 3cm confirmed by my dr
Dry mouth and throat followed by a sore throat
Fever feeling and a low fever at afternoon time
Headaches
Fatigue

The months followed after that
A lot of broken bloodvessels
Paintful stings around lymphnode areas
Different types of rash which dont dissappear even after doing something about it
Itchy skin
Extreme pain in lower body which prevented me to go out of my bed for 2 days
Still the swollen lymphnodes
Dry mouth and throat and a lot of mucilage production
Extreme fatigue
Diahrhea

Tests and dr appointment
5 weeks after the latest incident I went to my dr because I really felt ill
We decided to test for
HIV DUO TEST
STDs
Acute EBV
CBC
Toxoplasmosis

6 weeks later
HIV DUO TEST
CBC
helio bacter lyme disease parasites

3 months later
HIV DUO TEST

All the test came back negative and normal

What I noticed while trying to look up some information about all of this is
People often post non risk situation such as sitting on a toilet etc or low risks such as having having sex with a girl in a western country
Because of this I feel that because of the small odds of the girl even having hiv combined with the small percentage of transmission combined with a negative results gives someone a conclusively negative status because the percentage is for example then 99.99999999999999999999%
However what for example in my case where I had a lot of complaints during the ars time period which my dr agreed on and than add the fact that the country where it took place in is very high risk and than combined with the abrasion I had during all of it I feel like the percentage is more like 99.9% for example for me which is of course not conclusive

It now has been 6 months and I still feel something is wrong it I feel like it could still be hiv or it could be something else

Would you advice me to test again for hiv or would it be a waste of time
Also do you have any advice what else to look for

Thank you very much all

Me

Re: Negative tests still feeling ill

Well your tests prove you dont have hiv, so their is no point testing again. The only way forward is to work with your doctor to resolve your health issues.

Re: Negative tests still feeling ill

Hi

Thank you for your reply
Its just that for example with cancer
People feel unwell go to the dr since they suspect cancer and dr and the test results say nothing is wrong. Than later than do have cancer.
Another example is lyme disease where people walk to dr and dr and finally after years of experiencing complaints they finally get diagnosed with it
What I am trying to say with this that even though the tests seemed conclusive for them they eventually were not conclusive at all

So I was wondering if there are perhaps other tests which I could do

Thank you

All the best

Re: Negative tests still feeling ill

You can't compare cancer and Lyme disease with HIV! They work differently in the body and have a completely different method for diagnosis! Whatever is wrong with you has been absolutely proven to not be HIV based on your test results. HIV is now 100% ruled out as the cause for your problems. The more time you keep focusing on something that has been conclusively ruled out (HIV), the more time you are taking away from being able to find out what is actually wrong with you.

The problem with those illnesses is their is no one simple test that can give you a definative answer, its a combination of many tests and a biopsy, but its very rare these days that cancer is missed, rare.

Now hiv tests are the most reliable in the medical industry. Hiv is a blood virus so thats why the tests are simple and reliable.

Their really is no point beating a dead horse. As concerned as you maybe, it dose not negate your test results. You really are hiv negative.

Re: Negative tests still feeling ill

Thank you both very much for answering with respect towards me
It must be somewhat annoying to over and over read the same type of questions.
All the best to both of you and whoever reads this!
