I've had an upper respiratory illness which began Dec 19th.

I've had an upper respiratory illness which began Dec 19th. I coughed for 2 weeks and the doc gave me 5 day dose of antibiotics. It didn't help much. Went back to the doc and she said it could be the lingering affects of bronchitis and gave me an inhaler. I still cough, not involuntarily but involuntarily because I have a xhronic post nasal drip. I seem to have to consttantly clear my throat and am hoarse. Got a chest xray which was normal. Is this asthma or the aftermath of a bad voral infection. Its now been a month since my illness. Thank you!!riJA: How long have you been dealing with the cough? Are you having any other symptoms?Customer: Just a voluntary cough to clear my throat. I seem to get a bit asthmatic after working out and it's always a bit worse in the evenings.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Never smoked, never had asthma.

Hi Doctor,More than 6 months ago I had following exposures,Visited a female escort and,1. Received condom protected oral sex from her.2. kissed her upper body a bit3. touched her genitaliaAfter 20-30 minutes,4. Received another condom protected oral sex from her (with new condom)5. Inserted 2 fingers in her genitalia and tried to stimulate it for about a min or moreSame day I visited another girl and received condom protected handjob from her and touched her arms.After the exposure I had mouth ulcers for few days which may be due to no enough sleep and indigestion. However, after 3 months I had fever for two days and runny nose. Now, after more than 6 months I feel chills in evening and sometimes top of head is quite heavy and when shakes or cough it pains. This is happening from 2 days. I cough a bit like 2-3 times in a hour or may b not but I feel I am about to cough in my chest but I don't cough. Today, when I wake up from sleep I felt wet around my chest. Well, it was not wet like I should change my clothes but wet. I slept wearing sweat shirt and had blanket over. However, was wearing shorts so no sweating in other parts.Does any of this is HIV related? Can HIV symptoms occur after 6 months? I did one HIV rapid test after 16 days which was negative. It was early I guess. But do I need to test in this exposure? Am I really at risk? What is all this related too?
