HIV IS A VIRUS THAT IS BLOOD TO BLOOD CONTACT. A HAND JOB ON A PENIS THAT IS NOT BLOODY OR THE HANDS OF THE PERSON PERFORMING IT IS A SAFE SIGN. YOUR PROBLEMS AND SYMPTOMS ARE FROM WORRYING. GET TESTED EVERY TWO TO THREE WEEKS FOR PEACE OF MIND AND STAY AWAY FROM SEX WITH HIV PERSONS.

Muscular: It sounds like a muscle issue. I'm not sure why a brain or throat MRI would be done for upper arm problem. If it is painful or affecting your function, i would have it checked out again.

Allergic & pregnant: The less medication used in pregnancy, the better, most people agree. However, late in pregnancy, category B antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Zyrtec are generally safe for mother and baby. Nasalcrom spray is especially safe, as long as one is not allergic to it, which is RARE, but it is not very strong. Nasal steroid sprays Nasacort/Flonase are usually fine, because not much is used--all these OTC

It : It sounds like you may have been diagnosed with kidney infection (pyelonephritis) and a prostate infection. The antibiotics you were given are likely not working and/or you may be having an allergic reaction to them. It's very difficult say without actually taking a detailed history and directed physical. Regardless, your symptoms warrant a trip back to your doctor. You may need the stones removed, your kidneys may not be working very well now due to the infection and/or stones.
If you had not done so already, please go back and seek medical care right away.

Sounds like possible: Viral syndrome. If you have a significantly sore throat w swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see your dr for strep throat test & culture. Saltwater gargles are very helpful. Mix a teaspoon of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle with this several times a day. You can gargle with aloe vera juice a couple of times per day. You can make fresh organic ginger tea to help with GI symptoms. Steep slices of >.
