About a year and a half ago I had unprotected sex with a csw in NYC. It lasted only a couple of mins. A week or so later I had severe nausea a couple days later I googled and saw symptoms of hiv. Now remember I was sick before I thought it could be HIV. After my nausea that was 24 hours a day for 2 weeks I started having fever,dry cough pain in my hip sensitive eyes and fever. I this point if you want you can contribute all that to anxiety and I would probably agree but the only thing that sticks is the nausea lasting so long and I lost 20 pounds in 2 weeks. When I got sick I had no guilt or Idea of any stds. Since then Ive had rapid tests at 3,4,5,6,8.5 oral test at 11 weeks and 2 blood draws 89 days and 6 months.All negative!! What brings me here today is that Ive had dull ache in my neck,armpit,jaw and groin. I don't feel any swollen lymphnodes that I know but every minute of the day I feel this dull ache. Is there a possibilty of a rare strain or hiv2 that won't get picked up on the test? Is there anyway to be positive with a six month negative?View Thread
