HIV sure in the hell does cause night sweats. MOVE ON.
HIV does not cause a single groin to swell.Does not cause night sweat or a pimple on the arm. Never cause symptoms in the first week at all.
I do appreciate your replies.
Due to the hot and humid climate, could the HIV survive for a few minutes on the condoom? I may have put it on inside out, which could of caused an infection?
Do you know if many HIV+ people experience aches after lowering their immune system through drinking alcohol?
I would suggest you quit drinking alcohol if it causes you to have aches and pains. You don't have an HIV concern.
Sorry to revive an old post but it's related to this situation I had 6 Months ago outlined above.
Since this incident I've been experiencing aching in both arms the day after I drink alcohol. This happens every time no matter how much or little I drink.
I was wondering if anyone else has experienced the same feeling? I heard it could be a linked to Hodgkins Lymphoma, which people with HIV have experienced before.
I haven't been for a HIV check yet as I didn't think I have a high risk exposure.
Your opinion would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to know why you think that I never had an exposure.
I've read up on how long the virus can live outside the human body and i've come accross mixed responses. It depends on the enviromental factors i.e. the amount of liquid present on the condom depends on how quickly the air can dry it up. Some say it lives for seconds, some say minutes to hours.
I'm not sure but more opinions on my circumstances would be appreciated.
the reason, which i too find hard to believe, is that HIV is apparently rendered inactive once it leaves the human body (unless sealed in the syringe of a needle). I would say he's right, but, not to alarm you my question to further that is "is there a minumum time before the virus is inactive after leaving the body....i.e. 1min or something?
Correct me if I'm wrong but If I put the condom on inside out surely sexual fluids from the CSW would make contact with my penis, therefore giving me a potential exposure.
Thanks again for your commnts.
You never had an exposure.
I see I've posted in the community forum not the Doctors section. Besides, If any of you HIV+ people experienced symtoms like mine It would be useful to find out.
please note symptoms are not the only indications. as u have traveled a lot may be some fatigue. please get ur self tested at 90 days to be safe.
