Hello, I'm new to the boards and wold like to share my story to garner some opinions as I'm new to all of this. A year ago I had a sexual experience with a woman I later found out to possess HIV. This event happened the day before thanksgiving and my symptoms set on almost immediately after, which for HIV, is unusual as theres usually an incubation period. I thought for certain I'd contracted the HIV virus and, naturally, I freaked out and had panic attacks almost every day for about a month. My symptoms at first were very unusual...I ran a very, very low fever for a little while and then suddenly my body started to become cold. It started in my feet at first, they were very cold to the touch as if my blood had stopped flowing to my feet. What set on the following weeks after that encounter I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. I had sever muscle aches in various parts of my body. My lymph nodes under my armpits swelled and I experienced blurred vision. I had continious herpes outbreaks around my rectum and SEVERE constipation which has lasted all this time... I thought for sure I'd caught the HIV virus. But I was wrong...apparently. I was tested for a year with various testing methods, the method for antibodies, the method for the virus itself. My infectious disease doctor concluded me HIV negative after 7 months of testing, stating after a test for the virus itself in my blood, "your body has never seen the HIV virus." He tested me for a multitude of disease and the ONLY one that stood out was EBV. I can't quite remember my EBV results but the EBNA was HIGH. Extremely high. My doctor said he believed I was suffering from either a reactivation or primary infection of EBV. Symptoms I still have are: Randomized twitching all over my body, Random pain all over my body, Constipation, but when I do poop my feces looks like it has mucuous on it (im suspecting candida) Thick blood--Hypercoagulation? (I started taking nattokinase) I remember when this disease first set on my doctor had diagnosed me with extremely low vitamin D and anemia, and also said my triglycerides were high. I was experiencing blurred vision, burning legs, muscle aches and pain. I gave up on HIV being the culprit, although I still find myself scared because it was a confirmed encounter. Protected intercourse but unprotected oral sex--I received. (which everyone has told me is no risk at all). I know you can get Mono, or EBV however from saliva. Is there anyone else who got this from a sexual experience? Is there anything else I can tests my body for? Do you think what I have is EBV? The CFS/Fibro symptoms I see people posts here and the link with EBV def makes me feel like I've found a group of people I can relate to FINALLY.
