Ok thanks everyone. So you don't think the doctor or the nurse put HIV into my diazepam or normal saline? I've heard stories of people going to Mexico, passing out and getting sticky notes posted on them saying "welcome to the wonderful world of aids bitch"

Just ... no. Maybe if you'd gotten a transfusion from blood that was contaminated. Even then, the chances are rare. It's not like Mexico's full of American-hating doctors just waiting to infect hapless patients. Methinks you need to keep taking the diazepam.

In case anyone is still confused:  googling your symptoms will cause you to remain in a state of extreme anxiety. Stepping away from the internet is the first step toward lasting peace.

Once again, HIV does not cause ANY symptoms.  HIV is the virus that causes AIDS, AIDS causes the symptoms, and one has to be infected with HIV for 10 to 30 YEARS before any symptoms show up.  ANY symptoms you are getting is NOT from AIDS!   And furthermore you are not infected with HIV in the first place.

Well I know that HIV can cause Primary HIV infection symptoms so I thought my sore throat and body aches could be attributed to that. I did not have a fever, swollen lymph nodes or night sweats. You guys think I'm crazy huh? I mean what are the chances I got some crazy ass doctor just waiting to use his contaminated vials of Diazepam on me, right?

They are symptoms of hiv, but i have had those same symptoms many many times and i have had many hiv tests - all negative. Noone on here can reassure you, im in the same position as you thinking i have MS, not even my own doctor can reassure me. The only thing that will put your mind at rest is a HIV test, and if it is positive (which it WON'T be) you can deal with it. And when you get your negative result you can put all of this worry behind you, the chance of you having a crazy doctor who wanted to contaminate you with HIV is... Probably 0%. I have had the hiv fear SO many times, i swear down i know exactly how you are feeling and you know what im saying is right but at the same time that voice in your head is saying 'but what if...'.
Go get the test. You'll be ok you'll see :)
