i'm in a new relationship of about 8 months and never before did i worry about being hiv + but after reading an article about chronic cold sores being a sign i started to worry. i've always gotten cold sores about 2 times a year (usualy when they chap badly from sun or wind) but since the start of my relationship i've been getting them more frequently(I would have one and a week later another would surface). My diet has changed considerable and for a while i stopped taking my vitamins. now back on my vitamin regime i will still get them roughly every two months. they do clear up in the average 7-10 days using abreva and taking l-lysine, but now i worry and started to think back to the begining of the relationship for signs. He did come down with a cold/flu (fever) about a month or so later, which we got rid of in a day or two, but then I caught the same thing. Is is possible if he was infected that I'd catch the flu too?? He then too had a lump in his teste which was first though of by the doctor as Chlamidia, but after further testing found no baterial infections. Now, about two months ago he said that he just wasn't feeling "right" and we both acutally had minor headaches and brief dizziness at the same time. (I'll still get minor dizziness if I move too quickly or get off an elevator). What else confuses me is that he has acute IBS which has been under control (no medication - just less stress) and now it seems to be flaring up again?? I'm petrified that I've unknowling infected this poor person. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
