Ok back in December of 2007 I had unprotected sex and around the end of April of 2008 I started to have some pain on my left side of my abdomen and a little warm to the touch. That went away after 2-3 days and then I started to have fatigue, pain in my under arms and groin, and a dry stuffy nose. The pain in my groin went away after about a week and a half and the fatigue was about two weeks. I still have the pain and discomfort in my underarms and dry stuffy nose. The pain in my underarms would go away if I chanced deodorant but come back a few days later. It would also go away if I did not use any or only have mild discomfort if I would use it twice a week instead of every day. Around the end of July I had a HIV-1 test done and it came back negative. It was 7 months (215 days or just a little over 30 weeks) after my unprotected sex. About two weeks ago I started to have some pain on the left side of my abdomen again but no warmth and if I pushed around on the area it did not hurt. It came and went for just about two weeks. Then about three days ago the pain is in the center of my abdomen and it comes and goes as well and does not hurt to any presser that I put on it. For the past 3-4 days my underarms have not bothered me what so ever. Could this still be HIV related even though I tested negative that far after unprotected sex?

  • Seems to me the first thing I'd do would be to repeat the HIV test. You don't mention if you're male or female. If female I'd suggest going to have a comprehensive gyn exam - they could repeat the HIV test then as well.

  • Then make an appt w/a urologist and have them repeat the HIV test.

  • I am planing another HIV-1 test soon. Does anyone else have any ideas on what is going on with me?
