I don't have aids but I have a question related. Aids happen when healthy blood comes in contact with hiv positive blood. Right? What if a healthy person doing sex with several healthy people (who do not have any hiv or anything)? Will that cause aids?

Hello lybrate-user, you seem to have symptoms that are typical of migraine. This is a particular variant of headaches which are similar to what you described. This needs urgent attention. You need to visit a neurophysician immediately, and he/ she may ask for an mri in the first step (to rule out if there is any underlying cause in the brain) if not, then you will be started on specific anti migraine treatment. Please avoid coffee/ cheese/ chocolates as these are common triggers apart from anything specific to you eg, loud noise / sunlight / etc.

I m 25 years old my digestive system is very weak nd always feeling acidity in my stomach.
Acidity or gastritis in younger patients occur because of lifestyle problems, meal irregularities, choice of diet. You will first require weeks of antacid therapy after being seen by gasteroenterologist/ gastrointestinal surgeon. If symptoms persist or else you become dependent on antacid medications then you will require upper gi endoscopy. In very few cases hypergastritis is due to large hiatal hernia which is corrected with surgery.

Your hemoglobin level is okay but your smoking is not okay at all. You seem to be on a reactive mode i.e. you will only want to deal with it after some medical problem presents itself. Sometimes, that might be too late: some problems will be permanent e.g. BP. So my advice is to quit immediately.
