Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms yahoo health


936016 tn?1332769204 Many of the questions we answer on this Forum and also the Freedomhealth Sexual Health Forum relate to anxiety about HIV and also possible early HIV symptoms. One of the main problems in relying on HIV symtoms themselves is that they are notoriously vague and almost all the symptoms may in fact be symptoms of a different disease. The best method always of diagnosing HIV is to have a modern HIV test.
480448 tn?1426952138 I am very honored to be a regular contributor on the HIV Prevention Forum here at MH. The forum is very busy, and we often get the same inquiries over and over. I figured that putting together a journal entry covering the most popular topics, and just laying out the facts may be helpful. I also invite Lizzie Lou and Teak to share their thoughts, and to cover anything I may have missed.
1024580 tn?1331577721 We know that testing and identifying new HIV positive people is very important in terms of their own health but also in reducing the chances of HIV spread to others. The biggest risk of HIV infection is through having unprotected sex with someone who has just become HIV positive. If you do think you have been exposed then you should obtain medical advice regarding the use of Post Exposure Prophylaxis to reduce your chances of acquiring the infection. The earlier you do this the better.
1024580 tn?1331577721 Romero and others, in their article describing an excellent and diligent long term study failed to identify any risk at all in transfer of HIV from an HIV positive to an HIV negative partner through oral sex. In total 19000 episodes of oral sex were documented amongst 135 heterosexual couples over ten years and in 34% of these episodes the HIV positive male ejaculated into the HIV negative females' mouth. (Romero J et al.
Avatar n tn I had mine inserted this past Feb. I just started having the exact same symptoms. I am going to take a hpt. Let me know if you find out whats causing your problems.
Avatar n tn So why get all worked up because you just happen to have HIV? Cancer would be worse I think. Take some meds, live healthy, watch your health, and viola, youre just like every one else again: living!
10947 tn?1281407852 Last week the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released a report that included a list of recommended preventive health services for women that should be covered by health insurance plans at zero additional cost to the patient. The IOM is an independent, non-profit organization that serves as the health and medicine arm of the National Academies. The organization identified gaps in the existing government recommendations on women’s preventive care.

277836 tn?1359669774 Did you end up telling your wife? Even if the escort had HIV (which chances are better that she did not), it's hard to catch HIV from a one-time exposure, especially if you didn't previously have any STDs.
Avatar n tn Doctors I'm Sex with my partner once unprotected and since that time i am getting hiv symptoms like fever, groin swelling, muscle pain and joints too and headache and red rash on my chest one circle thing and i got a weird pimple on my stomach and fatigue and pain on my throat ; and about my partner i am not sure if she is hiv negative but she keep on saying that so due to that i made a x ray and cbc and viral marker or screening for Hbs something and VDRL and HIV rapid test and all came out
Avatar m tn many of the actually infetced people were 100% asymptomatics, therefore symptoms are irrelavent when we talk about HIV. The only thing which is conclusive, is our blood test.
Avatar m tn Hey Teak, since you seem to have a lot of knowledge about HIV, ever since I had my "symptoms" i've been suffering from Postnasal drip, very chronic, the back of my throat looks horrible like an infection and my tongue feel dry and looks pale white, I had my 103 days negative HIV test. Do you think its related to HIV? Am I a late seroconverter? I'm kinda lost. Another thing, does a chest x-ray and dental x-ray delay HIV antibodies???? I'm kind of concern now.
Avatar n tn Hmm...I wonder if you're allergic to it? I wish I had a definite answer. If you think it could be an allergic reaction, I would stop using it and take some benadryl to see it that helps. I looked it up on yahoo health, and it said this: "If the infection does not clear up after one course of therapy or if it appears to get worse, see your doctor. You may have another type of infection.
Avatar n tn OK... I agree with previous replies that this original post was... odd... However, if anyone ends up here somehow looking for info about HIV Testing, being young and skinny with chest pain, or worried about headaches, or especially worried about Type II Diabetes, then this is for you... 1) For ALL of the above possible symptoms: GO SEE A DOCTOR! I'm not kidding... somewhere within a reasonable travel distance, there is more than likely a free clinic available...
Avatar m tn So back in the beginning of May I started having trouble breathing with signs of a sore throat / viral infection as well as just feeling like **** (tired, beat up, etc) for about 2 weeks. The tiredness backed off but I was still having trouble breathing. i was honest with doctors about my sex life and told them I was concerned it was an STD, I wanted to be checked for everything.
Avatar m tn diagnosis is carpal tunnel. Negative HIV. Ultimately, I have an inflammatory disease, but I cannot ascertain the link between myocarditis and optic neuritis; it's a curve ball. Is there a correlation here, or have I hit the medical lottery, sadly enough??? I'm posting this because my neuro-opthamalogist told me, at age thirity, that he would not diagnose me with MS, but he explained, "If I do the lumbar, you'll never get health insurance!
Avatar n tn These include my former health department; the American Social Health Association (; the Westover Heights Clinic of Portland, OR (; and CDC ( 1) See no. 6. 2) I'm confused by the timing. You say your partner 'had' HPV. How long ago was her test? Are you still having sex with her? How long have you been partners?
Avatar f tn I have had bloodwork done and it was negative. Just wondering if anyone else was experiencing same symptoms. I am going insane trying to deal with this!
Avatar n tn It is a very real medical disorder but either it hasn't been identified it yet, or it's burried so deeply in the literature that doctors don't have the time available to invest that it would take to diagnose it in we frustrated web population. Maybe, since it seems to pose no apparent health threat, doctors don't feel it's urgent to identify. The condition is symmetrical (left/right) white lines running along the edges of my tongue.
186606 tn?1263513790 I have heard that the people in my generation constitute a peak of HCV patients, but that there is another peak, although smaller, coming of younger people, maybe because people have gotten used to HIV being around and don't realize what a threat IV use constitutes to one's health.
667078 tn?1316004535 I will be eternally grateful to her and all the help she has been to me. I have no health ins so can't go for all the extensive testing, but was given a clinical dx of MS by my PCP. She prescribed the LDN for me and wanted me to file for disability, but I'm not ready to give up on myself yet and accepted the LDN, but not the disability. After about 2 weeks of taking the LDN, first week I was on 1.5 mg and second week went to 3 mg. I did see a marked difference in my fatigue.
Avatar n tn The first few weeks I thought I noticed tiny, tiny cuts, maybe 2 on the underside of penis. I used a magnifying glass to view. I was inspecting my penis 50 times a day early on. About 2 weeks into it, I noticed and oval shaped area on shaft of penis, same color as flesh, but definitely outlined with an oval and skin appeared thinner with some slight burning there. This oval shape is still there, has been there for about 10 weeks, and one tiny area of it still feels sensitive, kind of raw.
Avatar f tn They also would not be caused by Herpes 1 in people with no other apparent serious health problems like HIV. Bacterial Vaginosis and Yeast Infections may cause inflammation and small cracks in the folds of the skin, they do not cause cuts in center areas of the skin, and they heal without reoccurance once the infection is treated. An anal fissure can sometimes occur in the center area of the pernium (between the front and back) because of straining or constipation.
Avatar n tn I have since been back 3 times for same problem (no red spot, only vaginal and vulvar symptoms persist). Over an 8-month period I have tested negative for HSV 1/2 on 2 subsequent cultures, and 3 antibody tests. Had a very expensive trip to dermatologist. He did a biopsy of vulva (very painful, with much blood and stitches). The results showed what he called "thickening of the tissue due to unknown irritation". That was a very expensive and not very helpful answer.
Avatar n tn My urologist currently has me on 100 doxy once a day for 6 weeks. Its helping but I still have the lingering symptoms. I know part of my problem is my reckless sexual activity. Im not having sex with different irls but I have like 7 girls that im having protected sex with right now Ive taken all antibiotis except Bactrim and was wondering what is the prescribed dosage of this particular antibiotic and what other steps could I take to cure this constant and persistent problem?
Avatar m tn Hi Everyone, I have read multiple post on this site over the years but have never actually posted any questions. But I am lost as to what is going on with me. I was relatively health up until I was 18 when I was diagnosed with Mono and suffered severe CFS for at least a year, along with this I developed Asthma, Reflux and multiple infections including Pluracy. I also developed thrush as a result of the antibiotic use and the Asthma medications. Took Zantac for the severe reflux.
Avatar f tn I now suffer from shoulder pains, weakness in arms and legs, chronic fatigue, depression, bouts of crying for no reason, neck stiffness, knee pain, swollen toe and wrist joints, and shooting pains from joint to joints . The doctor told me yesterday that i did not have lyme and those aren't symptoms of Lyme but of Lupus or liver disfunction, and when i asked what were her def of symptoms she said simply "NOT THOSE".
Avatar n tn my continued diahrrea and recent symptoms continue to make me very worried about my situation and even HIV because u have had some difficulty breathing for the past 3-4 weeks and every time i type diahrrea into the internet HIV comes up as the main cause. but i really should not be a risk for this and I DID test negative! plus my lymphocite #s were normal according to my new GI and yet even he asked me if i had been getting mouth sores and/or rashes!
Avatar n tn No the cdc says the "results are not always clear cut" meaning lets say you have HSV 2 anti bodies with no symptoms does that mean you have gotten HSV on your legs, maybe your mouth from oral sex? They can't tell you 100% sure with a HSV anti body test the location of the disease. And if you have HSV 1 which most people due maybe you still have genital herpes. Antibody tests are in fact useful for HIV and other diseases that involve the whole human body, not skin condtions.
Avatar m tn Low dose naltrexone (LDN) is a hot topic among patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), cancer, neurological conditions, HIV infection, herpes, autism, and autoimmune diseases. With good reason. Clinical trials and anecdotal studies show that LDN can stop disease progression, reduce symptoms and help the body heal itself. And if that isn't enough, LDN is inexpensive and it's FDA approved. There's just one catch.
