I am a straight 37 year old. Two years ago got a little bit lucky. Risk status unknown. Later came down with severe tonsillitis with white covering and swelling. Went away but still had lump in throat and white exudate occasionally in crypts. Lately been getting worse with sinus pain, cervical neck pain, and lots of acid reflux. Pain around ears and teeth. Throat appears inflammed and smooth. Tonsills don't seem too big but inflammed a little with constant white crap in crypts.

Had HIV screening blood test at 4, 8, + 12 months - negative. Waiting on new round of tests - this time rna and t-helper count tests as well. Am I crazy to be obsessing over HIV? or is there another usual suspect causing this grief?


Worried Straight...

PS: Antibiotics never seemed to work.
