I've been sick for so long, and I don't know where to start.
I had protected intercourse with a man, and gave him unprotected oral (I had cryptic tonsils with holes in them at the time) there was no ejaculation in either episode.
Two weeks later My tonsils swelled SHUT. I ended up having a tonsillectomy.
EBV Titers were high for past infection, Mono and strep negative.
6 weeks after the intercourse, I had a rapid blood test for HIV, negative.
The guy I was with also had a rapid blood test for HIV, and was also negative, but he COULD have been in the window period, I do not know.
Through all of this I developed frequent night sweats, a rash on my back, a chronic recurring low grade fever, flushing and chills during the day and swollen and painful lymphnodes all along my collarbone, underarms, and the tops of my legs.
I've had HIV tests run at the following:
6 weeks - rapid blood test
9 weeks - rapid blood test
10 weeks - elisa 1/o/2 ABS (doc office)
18 weeks - rapid Oral Swab test
19 weeks - Elisa 1/o/2 ABS (Doc Office)
21 Weeks- Rapid Blood test
22 Weeks-HIV ICMA (like elisa) test through Labcorp
22 Weeks - HIV PCR DNA Test
27 weeks- Rapid Oral Test
30 weeks - rapid blood test.
All HIV TESTS HAVE BEEN NEGATIVE!
Lupus ANA test, negative, CRP 0.50, HLA-B27- Positive, Thyroid panel, normal
CBC normal (neutrophils a little high, but not significant) - I have had a CT scan that said no cancer. Sed rate is 8.
I was given steroids when my tonsils were huge... could this have given me probs with antibodies>? Would any of you think that this was still HIV?
Symptoms: Night sweats, lymph nodes everywhere, rash on back, funny bumps on legs, flushing, chills
Please help :(
