    Sorry; we don't attempt to diagnose HIV by symptoms. If you believe you may be a risk for having picked up HIV your best bet is to get tested at the 90 day mark for this.

    David J Malebranche, MD, MPH responded:

    Sorry you are having a bad time with your symptoms. A couple things I'll explain to you:

    1. Its possible that you may have another problem, though not necessarily HIV, but another sexually transmitted infection that is causing your symptoms. There are other tests doctors can check you out for, so I would return and let them know that the treatment didn't work so they can run more tests.

    2. A sore throat and muscle aches could be just about anything, but you're right that it would be good to check out your HIV status to make sure that you're ok. But please at least wait a month to two months to get checked out...

    Please let us know what you decide to do!
