Hello,

In the past three years I had full protected sex with seven women, but I can't be certain that there were nothing wrong with the condom in one occasion.

In the last six month I have experienced some symptoms or signs that are driving me crazy.

In July I had otitis while in the beach (first time i had otitis and i'm 36 years old). Two month later i woke up with a stiff neck (allready had that months earlier) that lasted 2 or 3 day. A month later or so i felt difficulty to swallow (i was laying in bed at night) and had that for some days. Then, two months ago i felt a dry mouth and by the same time had a red eye (only the left one - this happened to me once months before). None of this symptoms occured at the same time.

I will have my HIV test this wednesday, but can someone tell if this matches a HIV positive case? Please tell me something, I'm so anxious....

Thank you very much
A.

  • No idea about HIV, but a dry mouth and a red eye may be signs of an autoimmune disease called Sjogren's disease. Try here: http://www.medicinenet.com/sjogrens_syndrome/article.htm
