    At the moment the biggest reason toubare feeling so ill is because you are so stressed and not sleeping.

    If you have been tested did they give you any specific advice? What their thoughts were on your symptoms etc? Typically the just any tests they do by a finger prick won't show up positive until after 3 months of contracting HIV. Did you have he finger prick test of the full blood test?

    Also why do you think this girl has HIV? Has she ever been tested?

    See, the early HIV symptoms (flu, sore throat etc) are pretty broad and are common with anyother viral infection. You must refrain from a slef diagnosis by looking up on the internet.

    It's really a waiting game when getting tested for HIV. It could take you at least 6 months to a year to know if you're really positive or negative. I know it's hard not to freak out. I've been in your situation. But I just waited and found out I was freaking out for nothing after testing 4 times in a year I am HIV Negative and now in a monogamous relationship. Always be on the safe side. Good luck smile
