The 6th of March 2009 after taking some alcohol, weed and amphetamine i developped a few weeks later an Anxiety Disorder(GAD) which lasted to this day. I had many symptoms so the doctors did some tests on me and cleared out heart, brain, blood, thyroid as the cause for my Anxiety and basicly told me it was all in my head.

I never really gotten sick in my life, late 2009 i had a white bubble in my gum for a week which disappeared and now ive caught my first cold in ages. I tought i had a swollen lymph node but the doctor said it was just a fluid bubble in my neck which bursted eventualy due to weight training and its pretty small doesnt change size and soft.

Right now i feel these symptoms:

Anxiety Related:

Headache (Pressure in the Head)
Tingling Burning Sensation/Chest Pains
Ants Crawling over my body
Heart Palpitations
Fear and Anxiety

Cold Related:

Stuffy Nose
Stuffy Throat

Now my GAD makes me naturaly worry about things and in particular i keep thinking about this event 3 years ago where i had intercourse with a girl who had HIV but ive always used a condom my next girlfriend after that which we had chronic sex whitout condom for a 1 year and a half got tested at school negative.

Is it possible i still have it if she got tested negative and somehow didnt catch it?

Im very nervous about getting tested and im wondering if its possible to have it and still have sex without transmiting for so long.

I know my organs are heatly so know its either something Psychological or Immunological or a combination of both?

GAD is making me think crazy things and doctors all think i just need a psychiatrist. Havent done Blood test for HIV yet

  • your symptoms partially paranoia leading to hyperchondria which is a well known medical condition and it annoys me as many doctors dont take the time to listen to their patients and treat them for the symptoms rather than the rote of the problem. if your girlfriend hasnt got HIV then chances are you dont either, however its is always smart just to check as it is possible you got lucky. last thing, a cold is just a cold and nothing to worry about, its only because your not sperating your GAD from other viral symptoms that your getting worried.I still advise seeing a doctor and getting that HIV test done, it is very treatable and most patients still live good lives with the disease.also your doctor can diagnose any other underlying helath issues and refer you to a phsychiatric unit for GADhope i helped

  • sounds like GAD. i have it too. might need a med to even you out, but it's pointless if you are still you using drugs. as for the hiv thing, just get tested- you're prob fine. it's the easiest way to avoid the anxiety.
