OMG, I really need somebody to help me figure out something!!

Can somebody tell me what's going on with my body? PLS?

Got tested on JULY 16TH for HIV and STD'S, Results came back on JULY 23RD- ALL NEGATIVE (except for HSV-1, which is very common, no worries)

Papsmear on JULY 23RD- ALL NORMAL

Doctor said I was EXTREMELY healthy for my age,weight,height,etc.

Getting Tested AGAIN on AUGUST 26TH, and CONFIRMING ON SEP.26 (3-month mark)

Here are my OVERALL SYMPTOMS for the past 3-4 weeks just to make it easier:
-Rashes (sometimes itchy,not painful,just dry skin)
-Little pimple-like bumps on various parts of the body
-Yeast infection, I think (because it came back normal I when had papsmear)
-Headaches (frequently)
-Canker sores (frequently)
-Irritated throat (days worse than others)
-Weight loss of 4 lbs in 2 days
-Diahrrea lasting for about 4-6days straight
-A lot of brusies, so... easy bruising
-Aching and sore muscles
-2 White bumps on the bottom of my lip, went away in like an hour.
- Red skin around my thighs, went away in like a couple of minutes (not sure if it was just irritated skin or if I was overreacting)

******Can somebody give me something please? I GREATLY APPRECIATE any time you took out to read or reply to this.GOD BLESS YOU GUYS ( and i truly mean it )********

AND PLEASE DON'T GIVE ME SOMETHING YOU READ ONLINE, because i've been doing that ever since 3 weeks ago, and that's no help.

Re: OMG, I really need somebody to help me figure out something!!

your problem is that you are reading too much and or chasing all these symptoms.
they could be caused by many different things,there are too many of them to list
and they would be impossible to diagnose over the internet.
the thing is,the most reliable sure fire way to know if you have hiv or not
is by the results of your hiv test.
that result from the test means alot more then what any symptoms you have.
the tests are VERY accurate and they are considered conclusive at 6 weeks from the time of your exposure now, so 3 months might be a little overkill.
any results that you get before the 6 week window is a very good and strong indicator
of what your status is.
so from going from what you say, i would venture to say that you don't have hiv
and maybe anxiety and or other things are causing your symptoms.
when you get your results believe in them alot more then any symptoms that you might have.
good luck.
