I am athletically built and normally work out so i keep a nice not bulking but lean body appearance. A month and two weeks ago i was diagnosed with HSV2, sucks but I have gotten over it.
Throughout the same month, I was finishing up studying for my MCAT over that last month. So the stress of HSV2 and also trying to prepare for the test kept me out of the gym. Smoking marijuana often and also not going to the gym. In turn I have lost 4-5 pounds over the last month and few weeks and a couple pants sizes.
I am worried that I may have HIV knowing that people with HSV2 are more likely to get HIV. I have not had an encounter since then. So I am under the impression that I got it at the same time, if I even did. I got it HSV2 from a CSW. Skin to skin contact.
So im reading the symptoms now, weight loss- which i had, and just a few joint/muscle paints. No swollen lympnodes- which i was definitely able to notice during my hsv2 outbreak.
All in all I'm worried I have HIV because of my contact with a CSW, but more so because of the size loss. I feel like im trying to blame it on the stress. Note: All my other test came back negative after 3 weeks, including my hsv2 test. It took the lesion test for it to comeback positive.
Do I have HIV?
