Customer Question

I have been experiencing night sweats and extreme tingling on the bottom of my feet at night. Almost like a burning sensation when I'm laying in bed. Is this anxiety or hiv?

Hello,

Myself Dr Josh- A Board Certified Physician. and I’m happy to help with your question today.

Well, if the condom was properly worn and it does not break, then you will not get HIV. The risk is less than 1% if condom doesn't get break during sex.
As you said, that it was protected sex, so you would not get HIV.
No need to get panic, and worry for HIV.

The main route for HIV transmission are-
-Unprotected penetrative sex with someone who is infected.
-Through Sharing unsterilized injection equipment .
-Injection or transfusion of contaminated blood or blood products.
-From a mother who is infected to her baby during pregnancy.

In your case, as it was protected sex, so you are safe.

You may be getting anxiety related symptoms. It is not HIV.

Hope this helped

How do I explain the night sweats and tingling feet? I've been worried sick for weeks could these be due to anxiety?
Expert:  Dr Josh replied 10 months ago.

Dear,

Yes, always thinking that you have caught HIV from that incident, would cause severe anxiety attack.

So, you are getting night sweats.

You have not got HIV, from that act. Please stop worrying.

Practice yoga and meditation for relaxation, Deep breathing exercises will help you.
Keep yourself busy in your hobbies.
You should maintain a good friend circle, and have a social healthy chat with them.

This is not HIV. Please relax at home.
