For two years now, I have been having symptoms of HIV. In fact, they were so similar to HIV, I was convinced it was and was in depression for a long time. It wasn't until recently that I had two HIV tests that came out negative.

Since then, I have seen a doctor that had a whole slew of tests done on me (blood, EKG, chest xray, STD) all which turned out fine.

First my symptoms were diarrea, difficulty concentrating, oral thrush, sensitivity to light, and chest problems (like liquid in my lungs).

Slowly, as the months passed by some symptoms left as new ones came. Concentration problems aren't as strong, but now tingling in my feet, scaley tissue on top of my big toes, pain in my right eye, and temporary bluriness in my eyes. I have small bumps on my buttocks, some very slight purple spots on my face. A few warts on my penis (the doctor said they don't look like genital warts as they are more fleshy).

It was suggested to me that I had a Candida infection. But for over two weeks I completely cut out sugar and carbs from my diet with absolutely no change.

It's almost as if my blood is poinsoned, but I"m just not sure.

Please, if anyone knows what this might be, or is having any similar symptoms, please reply. I'd like to know that I'm not alone.

I am 27 and was in very good health before this.

  • I feel for you and am posting here in order to subscribe to this thread as I would be interested in the replies you receive.I have a close friend who is dealing with a tremendous amount of stress in a similar situation. He has convinced himself that he has HIV although so far tests have been negative. He has many of the symptoms and the stress is keeping him from getting sleep and causing much anxiety.Your post will at least help him to realize it is still quite possible that he in fact does not have HIV.

  • it's very possible. i went through almost 2 years of depression. i got all my results back from the doctor and he can't find anything wrong with me. luckily, i have met with a spiritual advisor. i know it sounds odd but i'm having to make life changes. i will be seeing a doctor at the deepak chopra center and hopefully get some ayurvedic healing. since western medicine can't diagnose what i have, i need to look elsewhere.your friend shoud test since symptoms like HIV can be any number of issues since it's an immunal disorder. i wish i tested earlier, even if it was possitive. not knowing was difficult.

  • It could be sarcoidosis, Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome -- as well as a systemic candida infection which causes the oral thrush -- or other autoimmune disorders. If it is a systemic fungal infection, perhaps the worst thing you can do is follow some uninformed advice from someone in a health food store about just "dropping sugar and carbs" -- without full scale anti-fungal therapy and drug support. Perhaps the most damaging thing you can do is just stop feeding the candida. When you starve it -- without killing it at the same time with aggressive antifungals -- you may force it to become "tissue invasive" and burrow into your deep tissues. And you're screwed then -- because it's very hard to kill once it gets deeply entrenched. Have you been on antibiotics or anything like Prednisone? Prednisone is a corticosteroid that suppresses the immune system and allows opportunistic infections like yeast or candida. Have you performed oral sex on a female partner who had a yeast infection? Ingesting and swallowing it can and does cause systemic yeast illness. Are you female yourself? Candida has been known "jump" the vagina and digestive tracts -- and get into the bloodstream -- after surgery.Candida and sarcoid have been long associated in that candida tends for form "fungal balls" in the lungs. Personally, I'm convinced -- with some support from the medical literature -- that candida can cause sarcoidosis in some cases -- and it's this tissue invasive feature of candida that triggers the sarcoid. The body recognizes the invader -- and forms "granuloma" at sites where immune battles have taken place. Granuloma are hallmarks of sarcoid -- and candida is known to cause granuloma. (By the way, sarcoid patients are often put on Prednisone -- which it recently has been revealed to actually make them worse.) It can take years and years to subdue the candida then if it gets into the deep tissues -- and it could, rarely, cause permanent tissue damage. It has been known to be fatal in rare cases. Don't panic! But don't dawdle either. Just tell your doctor you want to pursue aggressive topic and systemic treatment against the thrush -- and you're concerned about the possibility it got into your bloodstream. Doctors are only just now starting to realize how nasty this critter really is -- and they often don't want to admit it -- because the American Medical Association party line is "this yeast business" is quackery. If you've got an "anti-yeast" doctor, you'll almost never get effective treatment. But be forewarned, there are "quack" doctors who rail against yeast also. So be careful. Plus, doctors often "cause" yeast infections with antibiotics and corticosteroids -- so if they're triggering all this illness and that can be proven -- think of the legal liabilities the medical profession faces. Every antibiotic and Prednisone prescription should be accompanied by aggressive anti-fungal therapy. (Rx firms recognized this -- and have included antifungal agents in some combined drugs with antibiotics. That's proof positive they're aware of the problem.) Systemic candida has to be killed with the right systemic antifungal agents like Diflucan or Sporonox, combined with Nystatin -- combined with a strict anti-fungal low carb diet to starve it and "cut off its supply line" -- while giving your body the nutrients it needs without feeding the yeast. You also need the right vitamin and mineral therapy. I recommend Shaklee. Plus, there are other antifungal agents like garlic and others that do help. Plus, you need to re-establish the right balance of "good" bacteria in your digestive tract with probiotics. It might take years of consistent treatment without slipups on the diet -- and once you've had a yeast infection like thrush and it has caused problems, you will need to watch it for the rest of you life -- being careful with your diet and health. And sometimes you never can trace the source -- and it just shows up because of a minor defect in your immune system. It doesn't need HIV necessarily to get a foothold. Non-HIV babies get thrush all the time coming down the birth canal. Illness caused by candida isn't automatic quackery as some claim on one side -- but it's not the cause of all illness either -- as others claim. Hope you take this very seriously -- learn all you can from the best, unbiased sources of information about candida -- and get well! Plus, I hope you either have or find a good, open-minded, competent doctor who will work with you!

  • thank you very much for this information. i've always suspected that it was a fungal or bacterial infection. but becasue of the money involved with antibiotics, i understand that the medical community would shy away from such disorders.yes, shortly after i had oral sex with a woman ( i am male) i got sick, what seemed like a regular cold. soon after my colde symptoms went away, i started to have the confusion and chest difficulties.i will look myself, but if you have any information on how i can find a good doctor that can treat a fungal infection, it would be much appreciated. i live in the san diego area. i will no doubt be seeing someone soon. it's hard to live with this condition.thank you again for your help. it means a lot to me since i have come to so many dead ends.

  • Check these links -- and maybe call to reach a real person. This top link might be the best one. I'd call Dr. Cranton -- and ask his office for a referral locally. Your actually having been diagnosed with irrefutable oral thrush -- and your case history -- helps a lot. I'd have the doctors culture it -- and save it. See whether it matches the same strain in your girlfriend. Researchers have been trying to establish this link for years. If you can prove it -- especially by culturing candida from your bloodstream or deep tissues -- and it matches your girlfriend's -- it would be a big medical coup! Realize, also, you're entering a medical battleground. And some doctors will absolutely flip-freaking out over this whole issue! Be prepared for that. You're probably better off in California than other places, though, because there are some fine, open-minded doctors there. They've also probably seen this before -- although nothing has ever been published in the literature about the link between oral ingestion of candida vaginitis -- and actual disseminated, systemic candiasis in the woman's partner. I know several doctors and researchers who might want to follow your case. Keep me posted at xzacktlee@yahoo.com about your progress. If you e-mail me, make sure the subject line catches my attention or I probably won't open it -- thinking it's either spam or a virus. Many doctors don't believe it happens -- and it appears to happen everyday! Prolonged long-term misdiagnosis might have actually resulted in some deaths. An article in a medical journal offering valid research documentation could revolutionize treatment of this "circumstance" that is actually a major medical blindspot. If you do have systemic candidiasis, you probably need Diflucan 400 mg. daily for up to six months -- although eight weeks might work -- along with Nystatin powder, and maybe Amphotericin B POWDER. Remember that the antifungal diet is CRUCIAL for continued long-term health -- in conjunction with antifungal treatment. You might never be able to go back to a sugar-ladden regular diet again. You do have to starve this fungus -- while killing it with real, strong medication. And remember that it is a fungus -- which is causing your body to be allergic to itself. Remember that this candida is also a lot like mildew in your shower stall: You may kill it back, but spores survive no matter what you do -- and it, like the mildew, might return when conditions favor it. Be aware that you may have multiple, overlapping yeast, bacterial and viral infections. Group B Strep is common in the vagina -- as is subclinical Herpes 2. If anything got into your bloodstream, it could have gone and "landed" anywhere in the body. You also might have picked up a parasite or protozoan of some sort. Get to somebody who takes you seriously -- and insist on the best tests available! Hope this helps!

  • i know exactly what your going through. iv had over four hiv tests. all have been negative. i think the only reason i got tested was i felt so bad everyday. and it just seemed to get worse and worse. i even went as far as seeing a hiv specialist who told me i was negative. its very hard to believe your negative when you have so many symptoms that all arise after a sexual experience. ive done a little research and seems like were not alone. i personally believe there is a sexual viral infection yet to be discovered by the medical community. so many people with so many symptoms yet with all normal tests. my doctor just told me to eat better and exercise. many people will tell you not to do it but for your own peace of mind you might try a cd4 viral load test. i had both and thank god they came out normal. hope you get through this.

  • While it is true that western antifungals like nystatin and diflucan can help candida, they are also very toxic meds. Here is the deal about candida overload. Just changing diet won't work. You have to 1. kill the candida overgrowth. 2. process and evacuate the overgrowth out of your system. 3. rebuild you healthy flora with a good quality probiotic. The absolute best candida cleanse I have found out there is called Threelac. It is somewhat expensive, but it works and has a money back guarantee. I have had problems with candida and this has help tremendously, expecially for thrush (instant relief!). Go to www.candidafree.net, or www.123candida.com for more info. 2 months on threelac is SO much safer and effective than taking the western antifungal drugs! Your symptoms should improve very quickly.Best of luck to youDoctor of Oriental Medicine

  • My boyfriend suffered many of the symptoms that you are suffereing from, not all but oral thrush, dirrahea, difficulty consentrating, fluid in lungs and heart, extreme fatigue, and visual imparement. He also had alot of skin irratations. The doc. at the local hospital were confused and stumped. His white blood count was normal but ran a high fever. They were conserened w/ HIV. He transferred to a University hospital that was more advanced with technology. In the end he was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosis. Maybe you should consider being tested for Lupus. You can't be tested for Lupus unless you are having symptoms. So discuss it with you doctor because lupus acts differently with each person.

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • I suffered with Candida for a year before being diagnosed. I went on the candida diet and took an antifungal called Phellostatin, prescribed by my acupuncturist, which is an herb-based "Chinese" antifungal. I took this for over two years. Here are my observations:Before diet and antifungal: intensely itchy, burning and painful skin all over body, horrible tinnea like rash over 70% of body, brain fog, depression due to pain, chronic gas, depression and other symptoms. Thought about suicide daily because of pain I was in. Pain was not unlike that of Poison Oak rash. (Not everyone has the same symptoms, which is one of the reasons why this condition is very difficult to diagnose.)First two weeks of diet and antifungal: massive die-off in the form of diarrhea. (Anyone with candida will have to plan their medication around a time when they can plan to be near a toilet. It's very intense, like having a horrible flu.)After the first two weeks: Provided you haven't cheated on the diet and you have been taking medicines or appropriate alternative treatment, you will start to feel better. You may not see complete recovery from symptoms, but you will see a reduction in them. However, because you are starving the yeast of sugars, they will be very demanding of you. As I understand it, Candida will actually start sending chemical messages to the brain to eat sugar. Hence your cravings for sugar may get intense when you go off it and it may be hard to stay on the diet. But don't give in.If you have always had a sweet tooth and you cannot imagine living without sugar, bear this in mind: If you can get through several months without eating sugar your cravings will diminish. I lost all desire for sugar once I was several months into the diet. When I began to eat carrots and sweet peas again (both are banned during the initial stages of the candida diet because they are high in sugars that feed yeast), I could not believe how sweet they tasted! Sweet peas taste like candy! After this period when things start to get better is one in which it is easy to believe that you have recovered. Don't be deceived. The candida is still there, but it is below the threshhold that triggers symptoms.I belonged to a candida group (online) and you could see the folks who had the most difficult battle. They'd feel better and then go off the diet and bam the candida would come back full force and they'd get discouraged.I'd say stick to the diet well beyond not having symptoms anymore. I was on the candida diet for over a year before I went off it to a less strict form in which I allowed myself fruit, but still did not allow myself sugar. A really good book to use as a basis for your candida diet is "The Body Ecology Diet". I found it very helpful. One thing really interesting. During the two years that I was on the candida diet and was consuming NO FRUIT during the first year (except for lemons) and very little fruit in my second year (except for blueberries and very low sugar fruits) I didn't have a single cold or sore throat. Not even a trace. It was puzzling too because I hardly upped my intake of vitamin C at all. I think that I didn't get sick because I wasn't eating any sugar. I believe that our needs for vitamin C go up when we consume sugars. Pay attention to the onset of a sore throat. Does it come on shortly after eating something really sweet? Once you rid yourself of candida and sugar you will notice a direct correlation between colds and sugar consumption. I have talked to several other people who have gone on the candida diet and they both said that their incidence of colds dropped to zero.It is known that eating sugar suppresses immunity. One day (when they can reduce the power that the sugar lobby has in this country) it will become public knowledge that sugar is the underlying cause of a great many diseases. But until then it is up to us to watch our diet carefully. You have to read all labels. Don't trust food manufacturers, not even those whose products are sold exclusively in health food stores.

  • Hello, unfortunately I had an unprotected threesome with my boyfriend and a friend who is a female. I heard a rumor that she had done needles with a guy who has HIV and now my boyfriend and I are really worried. Anyway, about a week and a half after the act, I began getting Flu like symptoms and my boyfriend did as well. I just assumed that I picked up a bug and it transferred to him. I had all the symptoms except my tonsils were really swollen so maybe it could have been tonsillitis? I went to the doctor and got antibiotics and I seem to be doing a lot better minus the cough. Also, wouldn't it be too early to get HIV symptoms only after a week and a half? I have been having a difficult time to sleep because I've been worrying so much, and my "friends" are not doing much to support me and help me. If you guys could give me some info I would appreciate it.

  • Like yours, my immune system is severely compromised, and I walk around with a white coating all over my tongue, picking up pretty much everything I am exposed to. I've been tested for HIV and STDs, and they always have come back negative. What I've been noticing, however, is that the white coating on my tongue and breathing difficulties seem to coincide with certain places and activities - driving my car, shopping under fluorescent lights, typing on the computer, talking on my cordless phone, etc... I obtained a gaussmeter/electrosmog detector and learned that whatever bug I have that is causing my white tongue and other symptoms seems to be triggered by any increase in electromagnetic and microwave field exposure. I think these frequencies coming from area cell phone towers and wi-fi are causing my immune system to konk out on me, and likely some common, normally non-problematic bacteria, fungus, or virus is wreaking havoc on my body. I have microwave sickness/electrosensitivities. The fungus is candida, and it is extremely hard to get under control. What cleanses have you done? DOM

  • Were you ever checked for diabetes? Was the woman from another country? They have some very elusive STDs coming through from Japan. You could have some type of non-std virus. The warts on your genitals would be a concern. I believe you should see a dermatologist for further evaluation. I believe that there is a medical condition and that further extensive lab work should be in order in addition to your spiritual development. The other gal who did a 3-some. Wait a few more weeks and go get tested. Then get tested in a few months, too.

After 3 weeks of the act I have sore throat, weakness along with mild fever. I assume it to be because of beer and exertion which I had on last weekend which dehydrated me and resulted in sore throat. But I am really worried. Also what are the chances of getting HIV/AIDS when doing oral sex with condom?. I am on antibiotics since last 5 days but not completely recovered. How long will it take for these symptoms to go. I am planning to get tested after 3 months. Is there any other method where in I can confirm the cause for these symptoms earlier ?. Please help.
