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.
