Hi. I recently noticed these white things in my mouth. I am not sure whether I had them before. Could it be oral thrush? besides I noticed that there are teeth marks on my tongue, which I assumed as scalloped tongue. I have been under huge stress for about 3 months assuming I might have HIV? Could these marks be due to stress and anxiety?

    for about 2 years i worried i had HIV. every little thing that happened to my body i assumed was stemming from it. i had crazy headaches and then recently my tongue went white. turns out i have a GI issue.

    i drove myself crazy until i just gained the courage to go and do a test which came back negative. stress plays a major role on the body, go to your doctor, do a test, live your life. chances are you dont have HIV, thrush would not appear 3 months after exposure. dont waste time worrying like i did.
