Do i have hiv or aids or something else

Posted , 4 users are following.

Ive been throwing up for 3 months now and today its at its worst. Ive been to the hospital but they cant find anything run with me.  Anyway 2 days ago i had an hiv quick test and it came back negative.  however what if i already have aids, would the hiv test even detect it?  i have what seems like symptoms of aids like vomiting, oral thrush, muscle weight loss, foul smell, sleep problems and rashes that come and go.  

if i do have it i dont even know how i got it. ive only ever had sex with a female once in my life and she was both are first times.  i dont do needles or drugs.   I have been masturbating for 11 years though but im not supposed to be able to contract it that way right?

anyway im really scared, hiv i can live with but aids theres no cure.  i might just end it here if i have aids.

    Hi I am sorry I don't know anything about HIV and AIDS, but if the lady and you were both virgins the chance of both of these would be nil if she really was a virgin. As you tested negative then that's because you don't have either so try not to worry about STDS! However I do think you should see your GP as soon as possible as your symptoms suggest you are poorly but certainly not in the genital department. I think your GP needs to do blood tests to see if you have an infection, not a STD one a body one! I don't know your age but masturbating is normal and you certainly wouldn't catch anything from that. So please stop thinking you have done something wrong you haven't and go to your GP to get your blood checked for inflamitory markers. In doing this he may be able to get to the route of your problems. I think the STD clinic will have checked you for STD diseases which you certainly don't have but from your symptoms you do need to,have a chat epwith your GP, get him to examin you, to see the rashes, the muscle wasting and to ask about the vomiting. They could be caused by numerous things but not HIV/AIDS in your case.

      thanks i'll really have to see my gp.  i just hope i dont have to go see a specialist because that takes up to weeks.  i could be gone by then.  if this isnt aids i dont know what else could cause muscle wasting.  i can feel my body slowing wasting away every day.

    Hi William, HIV is the Human Immunodeficiency Virus and this is what the test looks for in your blood, AIDS is diagnosed by a patient having a collection of symptoms which includes a high viral load (HIV) and a low T-cell count. As you are HIV negative you do not have AIDS. Important in all of this is your sexual history which does NOT have any indicators for HIV or any other STI.

    As Pam has said, go to your GP, tell him/her your symptoms and your fears/concerns so that investigations to identify what is wrong with you can be undertaken and you can be reasurred you do not have HIV/AIDS.

    Best wishes and let us know how you get on. Dot.

      thanks for the reply i was actually scared that no one would answer.  im just scared because i think oral thrust and wasting are part of something you get when you only have aids.  The hospital is what gave me the hiv quick test, could that have been wrong somehow?

      William listen because I will only say this once!!!! I have given international lectures on HIV, stop procrastionating and go to discuss everything with your GP. If you dont feel happy talking to the GP you are registered with, make an appointment with a different GP in the practice. Dot.
