Muscle aches: So you have muscle aches which can be caused by many things but HIV is not high on the list. We need more details-which muscles, duration, trauma history etc- to give you an answer. Perhaps an online consult at HealthTap may help you (I do not participate in online practice due to insurance coverage issues). ...Read more

Diagnosed with myalgia aches in thighs shoulders and legs could it be from Hiv I had oral sex but use a condom w sex in sept normal wbc low vit d 21?

You don't have HIV: Oral sex is etremely low risk for HIV, almost zero. Can't tell if condom was for oral or vaginal sex, but in any case no significant risk. And myalgias would never be the only symptom of a new HIV infection. But the main question here is your HIV test result. Presumably you were tested, right? If not, do it now -- expect negative results. This has nothing to do with vitamin D. Good luck! ...Read more

Received oral see from a female. Month later I had Gen joint and muscle pain x 3 months but no noticeable inflammation. HIV test at 42D neg, Concern?

Relationship?: Whether the generalized joint and muscle discomfort had anything to do with your sexual contact is very unlikely in the absence of other symptoms. If the interaction was only fellatio then the chances of your getting HIV are almost non-existent. You can get other STDs in this manner. Get tested and in the future be protected. The neg HIV test is probably quite accurate. No concerns. ...Read more

So is the muscle ache and joint pains symptoms in the late HIV stage or in aids? And what do people with aids look like?

So is the muscle ache and joint pains symptoms in the late HIV stage or in aids? And what do people with aids look like?

Why do you ask?: You'll be an adult in a few years and you need to familiarize yourself with HIV. If you have only achey muscles and are not obviously sick, you do not have late HIV / AIDS, period. This would be a great time to talk with an informed adult (maybe even Dad) about loving safely, and to get your first HIV screen from your personal physician -- something most young adults should get yearly. ...Read more
