hiv

Avatar m tn I believe I may be experiencing late stage HIV symptoms (persistent headache, loss of appetite and taste, weight loss, vision blurry, loss of memory and concentration, hair loss and a lot of weakness), I am not sure when exactly my exposure was...I have only had unprotected vaginal sex a few times men over the last 6 years. I recently completed a HIV 1/2 Antibody p24 Ag test and it came back non-reactive.
1341040 tn?1276317702 YES! I forgot to mention this bizarre symptom in my post too! I've had baaad hair loss, to the point where my hair is only 1/3 as thick as it used to be. It seems to just come out in clumps & if very scary. My skin also sheds too, like a bad sunburn, it peels off in sheets, but seems worse when I'm having these EBV symptoms. The skin shedding & hair loss often happen together in cycles. It's really worrisome I know.

Avatar n tn Hello, From the pattern of baldness it looks like male pattern baldness. Androgenic alopecia is a common form of hair loss and typically occurs in M shaped pattern. Men who have this type of hair loss usually have inherited the trait. Other causes may be use of some drugs, infections and underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes. A biopsy (taking a small sample of cells to examine under a microscope) of your scalp may be needed to establish the correct diagnosis.
Avatar m tn Male-pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss in men. Men who have this type of hair loss usually have inherited the trait. Men who start losing their hair at an early age tend to develop more extensive baldness. In male-pattern baldness, hair loss typically results in a receding hair line and baldness on the top of the head. Some medicines can cause hair loss. This type of hair loss improves when you stop taking the medicine.
Avatar f tn I'm desperate to find help for multiple symptoms that I feel may be thyroid related. I moved to a different state across the country 20 years ago and I have yet to find a good endocrinologist who specializes in thyroid diseases such as Graves- consequently, for the last 20 years, my health has been spiraling down & out of control. I had severe Graves disease & had a thyroidectomy leaving 2gr in '75. I've been on 125 mcg Levothyroxin for many years.
Avatar m tn Dear all, don't angry with me! Please, read my situation. I am a Bangladeshi (that is a developing country). One day I had a protected vagina sex with a sex worker. This was only one & first sex with prostitute. HIV Eliza 1 & 2 test after 45 days, 105 days (3.5 months) had done that was negative. But after 6.
Avatar f tn Instead of trying to find another STD to blame for your symptoms/hair loss, you should go to a doctor and allow the doctor to determine what may be the cause. In all likelihood it is not an STD at all. It's certainly not HIV.
Avatar m tn They happen in 1 to 2 weeks or not at all. Memory loss and hair loss are not at all related to ARS symptoms. You had protected sex. You had zero risk unless the condom broke. No risk no reason to test. HIV is not your worry.
Avatar m tn Hi doctor, I have been experiencing hair loss for about 7 years now. It's getting to the point where I will have to shave it all off soon. It's quite noticeable. I have no hair loss in my family at all. None on my mum or dads side. I'm the only one. I have however suffered from bad anxiety (stress) for quite some years now and wondering if this would be the main cause? Is stress making my hair fall out? I'm quite healthy and all my most recent blood tests are all fine.
Avatar m tn I am currently experiencing the same hair loss issue and I really appreciate the kind of topics that post here. I would like to recommend a site that provides a lot of information which very specific on Hair Loss, Hair Growth, Causes, Solutions, The site has it's hair loss & hair regrowth blog which is really content rich. Hope this kind of resources and hair knowledge would be able to improve your current hair loss conditions. Quote: http://hairlosstoregrowth.
Avatar n tn Ive had HCV for 20 years or so and have always had a head of hair. Actually too much hair. Thick & Curly. My friend in texas has a hair thinning problem, and she went to a specialist and they told her it was lack of protein to her body. But then again they checked her thyroid and other factors as well. I do know you can get thinning hair or hair loss during HCV treatment due to Peg and I am not sure about INC & Riba.
Avatar m tn Is telogen effluvium common in men after a stressful period? If the hair loss is caused by an STD such as syphilis will the hair grow back after the STD is cured? The hair loss is rapid. A lot of it. Is this typical of male pattern baldness.?
Avatar m tn Mostly it appears to be thinning and I began to notice it about a month ago and to me it seems to be getting worse by the week. There is no history of hair loss in my family men or women before menopause. I have been experiencing irregular periods for the past two year but they have recently been regular. It seems strange to me that a female of my age would be having hair loss. Do you think its permanent? What should I do?
Avatar n tn (thought I was crazy) the cycle stopped for several years, then about a month ago,it began again,after dying my hair. only this time there has been so much loss of hair, so I wear a babushka on my head everyday. I have been on Venlafaxcine for over a year, and came to Google to find some answers. certainly found a lot of people in the same boat.It has to be one of the saddest things to loose (especially being a woman)...I try not to let it control my emotions or go to my head Ha Ha!!
