Last thursday I was in close contact with someone that MAY be HIV positive, not considered by me at the time. No penetration occured, just mostly open mouth kissing and some body rubbing. The next several days after this (Fri-Sun) consisted of somewhat excessive drinking and cigarette smoking with friends, unhealthy I am aware. Starting Sunday night, I developed a sore throat, but fell asleep okay, however I woke up at 4am with fever (101F)... couldnt fall back asleep, tossed and turned with chills for 6 hours... Monday day felt better, little week and fell asleep at night just fine, but woke up 4am again and went through same thing as night before... today felt better, no fever, just a little weak... but repeated previous nights routine by waking up at 4am with high fever again and couldn't go back to sleep. Today (tuesday) has been better, but hoping this doesn't recur again tonight. What are the chances this could be an acute HIV infection from my encounter? Is it more likely just the Flu, or could it have to do with multiple nights of drinking and smoking and just general immunne system weakening? No one else I know has been sick, and I haven't been in close contact with any other people. I know I'm probably just paranoid. I don't even know if the guy is HIV +, and it's not usually transmitted through saliva/kissing, but I am still very concerned. From what I've read most acute HIV infections resemble the Flu and occur 2-4 weeks after exposure...this being only about 3 days after exposure. Any thoughts?????Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
