I am a 32 years old male. I have severe peripheral neuropathy symptoms since 2 months of my hiv exposure. Had a ptotected sex but I am not sure on hiv status of the sex worker or the condom status during sex(broke or any hole).
I am everyday feeling burning pain in feet, extreme body twitching cramps in thighs, tingling in feet leg and hand fingers. Sometimes burning pain in thumb also.
My doctor told it is not hiv but stress but it has never happened before and non ending. I am now 5 months hiv negative by duo test and pcr test. I also did std panel tests twice for hcv, hsv, vdrl, chlymdia and it was negative too.
Please suggest what to do as this problem is affecting my daily activities and even sleep. Is this HIV? How long do I need to do the tests to be 100% sure I do not have hiv?
Lab tests performed:
4th gen duo – 2 month, 3 month and 5 month Pcr dna – 3 month Pcr rna – 4 month
