Hi. I just turned 22. About five years ago I had unprotected sex (under the influence of meth, thank god I've been clean for three years) with a female that said she had HIV (I can't quite remember at the time, but she said something about a rare condition). About a week after so, I went to get tested-I was negative, but obviously still at risk. So I continued to get tested every 6 months; negative each time-I also tested for all other STDs-negative and I've continued to do so every six months for FIVE YEARS. Again, NEGATIVE FOR EVERYTHING. I even got a full blood screening, tested enzymes in my blood (check for digestive problems; cancer negative) along with paracites in my feces and TB screening in my lungs; nothing.
Symptoms; About a few weeks or so after exposure I developed the FLU really bad, and my girlfriend at the time also contracted it. About a year afterwards I feel in love with another girl, and felt confident enough to have unprotected sex with her. Shortly afterwards we both had the worst case of the FLU EVER, and she had to be hospitalized for broncitis.
We stayed together until 2007 and I told her about my exposure before than but since we both tested negative for everything so she felt confortable (oh, and there was a mono test too that was negative), but inbetween that time we both continued to get sick-in my case worse. I started to loose a great deal of body mass and my body began to feel and look fragile. Most of the exuberant youthness I've favored in my face has cease to exist. The fatty parts of my face and body (along with the muscle) have gone slack and wasted away. I've lost about 20 pounds and it shows in my face, arms, legs (i've never been "bow-legged", but now I am), chest, abdomen, back, genitals, neck-in short all over. I am less than slender or skinny. I look emanciated; starved.
We both started the coughing fits (me again; before-when first exposed, and again when I meet my new girlfriend), but hers continues and hasn't stopped, but occurs less often (she still coughs (dry) everyday but not as harsh as when after we first started having unprotected sex). My skin seems to have become extremely dry, and I burn more easily-even in winter; I have become extremely pale-We both share this symptom, along with the "hollowed-bruised eyes", the constant restroom trips (constant for more than a year, even after suggested remedies like eatting/drinking right and exercise; diarherra), the discolored "pinkish" fingernails/toenails, flat/pengiun/webbed feet and hands, extreme fatigue, stomach pains, chest pains, nausea, vomiting (less occurant).
It's gotten really bad now, insomuch that my co-workers get sick around me and start to have the same symptoms because of this they fear me. I've had 4 jobs in the last two years and everytime-about a few days to a week or so everyone around me gets really sick and they don't get better (it's always the FLU or FLU-like symptoms). At one of my last jobs, I overheard that my co-workers had to get ANTI-VIRAL treatments and fill out incident reports for on-site injury. About 3/4 of the staff were extremely ill for the entire time I was employed (9 months). Almost all of my co-workers had very apparent illness as it showed in signs and symptoms; coughing fits, nausea, vomitting, repeated restroom breaks, low tolerance to diary products (this is also one of my symptoms and has been for 3 years), "hollowed-bruised eyes", skin discoloration (paleness and pinkish fingernails), extreme fatigue.
My ex-girlfriend's co-workers have the exact same malaise.
Please direct me in the right direction. My doctor doesn't know what's wrong with me.

I'm really sorry to hear about what you've been going through. I have no medical experience, and the only question I can come up with is have they tested where you live for anything? I almost wonder if it's environmental, something that could be on your clothes that people could be exposed to at work. I really have no idea... hopefully someone can point you in the right direction... :)

I am a doctor and i can guess from your symptoms that you have got AIDS, and I am really sorry for you, you really didn't deserve it, nowadays anti retro viral AIDS therapy is available and is highly specific, i guess you just need to seek attention from a good medical man, and he'll definitely be able to help you, and your symptoms will resolve, I hope, I wanna know about your WBC count, do you have any idea about it? Get well soon.

I would like to add that it is very terrible that you are in the danger of AIDS. But I think that nobody is completely protected from the different lethal diseases. You should be strong enough and you should understand that the strong will may overcome any disease.

This thread is a couple years old, so I doubt the OP will see it, but please be wary of medical advice you receive from people you don't know online.
