For are all people suffering

For all people suffering and don't know what are there problem since last sexual exposure am talking about people with mild symptoms and no doctor could diagnose, some of them have been told they have anxiety and some are keeping testing for different things and still believe in their selves i wanna share this with you guys so u know that  you are not alone its been almost year since that damn night that changed my life , i had sex with a CSW and in one week every thing  stat to change and those are my symptoms :
1) Oral trush on my tongue with red spots
2) Enlargement painful lymph node in armpit , nick and groin area   (CT scan proved )
3) Skin rashes on the chest and behind my ears
4) fatigue
5) muscle pain
6) Dry mouth, Oral ulcers
7)  stomach ache
8) abdominal pain
9) chest pain
10) shortness of breathing
11) night swets on the beginning of the illness
12) CD 8 is higher than CD 4  and there ratio is under one while it should be above
and there other symptoms but there are the big ones that became a night mare that am 24/7 suffering of .
100 tests including all STD’s , lymph biopsy , colons copy, and they are scheduling a bone morrow biopsy and an endoscopy and still nothing appeared .. some doctors says it might be a new thing and some says that they might miss something and others got bored and asked me to take pain killers maybe my symptoms will get better by it self  by the time !!!!
what i want to say that a lot of people hear have the same symptoms cause i saw some questions and they have no answers i need them to keep searching and to know that they are not alone and to not lesson to stupid people talking about anxiety or any thing like this cause one day when this is going to be figure out every one of those is going to shut up,, some research are there caused people kept believing and took it to the media  like (hiv like virus in china) https://sites.google.com/site/newhivaidslikeviruschina/ and i hope we can figure something like them so we can push another research even if we should start collecting money for it or any thing this is our life and we wont gave up easily ..

I had condom broke with CSW in early 2008.

All test below are blood rapid tests Abbott Determine HIV 1/2 (not sure if 2nd or 3rd Generation)
- April-2009: HIV rapid Antibody test - Negative
- August-2009 - HIV rapid Antibody test - Negative
- Sept- 2009: HIV rapid Antibody test - Negative
- Dec- 2009: HIV rapid Antibody test - Negative
- May-2010: HIV rapid Antibody test - Negative
- June-2011: HIV rapid Antibody test - Negative
- July 2012: HIV rapid Antibody test - Negative

Recent tests: (About 4 years after exposure)
- Feb-2012: Abbott Determine HIV 1/2 Rapid test - Negative
- May-2012: Serodia HIV 1/2 - Negative
- May-2012: Abbott Axsym HIV 1/2 - Negative
- May-2012: Abbott Axsym HIV Ab/Ag HIV 1/2 - Negative


Now I'm still worried if I had false negatives of HIV because of any reasons that could be possible.

I never had tested for other STD.

Now i'm experiencing same as all symptoms decribed above including diarrhea ...

No worries of HIV
I think you are with us in HIV like disease group and this is an unknown illness cause up to now.

There are few studies trying to figure out the cause of it but there are few people only trying to push for this thing cause most patient are stock in HIV phobia and mental blaming because of their stupid doctors.

After seeing those pics i can bee 100% sure that we are in the same boat !!

same tongue and every thing,,

I know you are buzy with your family but i hope that we can talk much often trying figure something.

Am in CFS website and there are dozen of people like us who didn't have a diagnose and just got lost under that syndrome big umbrella while they believe like us that our story is from unknown virus,,

And am talking to Chinese physicians and doctors hope we all could work together its will be much easier !!

Am sorry to hear your situation but we are all in the same place, having HIV early symptoms but no answer and negative tests for every thing !!

No doctor knows what is our problem and there is a lot of talking around about a new disease or it might be the CFS/ME illness that still is mystery because of government ignorance and cheap funding and maybe as other people says its a conspiracy but i don't like to think of this cause this will take me in a dark road beside i believe in science and good doctors around.

I have all your symptoms and more, lymph pain too that is damn bad.

What we could do is to connect and try to get much more people like us to shout from this darkness and say we are here, there are other groups and communities starting to do the same now and we should participate.

We should call NIH,CDC,WHO and we could do more if we stand together.

Hope you will be a guy that would stand !

Thanks Omar! Think they ran a t-lymph. They said it was all my t-cells. I keep calling leaving messages....no answers! I will call again today at 9 am. Think the doctors/ nurses are not calling back cause something is going on. I'm sure I have a new strain. I will write back ASAP.
