Dear Doctor,

You answered my question in May regarding risk of infection.

(False positive? PCR test, put on medication, then stopped..)

My nightmare has continued with severe symptoms and falling CD4 and CD8..

Recently tested negative for HIV but; positive for GP 41, Elisa and WB..

What does that mean? How many bands is "required" in order to test HIV positive?

I need medical help whatever result HIV positive or negative.

(Tested negative for Syphilis)

Greatly appreciate if you could answer my question.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Dear Sir,

This forum is dedicated to HIV-positive folks, particularly those who have concerns related to fatigue and/or anemia. Questions related to HIV transmission, prevention, safer sex, HIV testing and risk should be sent to Dr. Bob at his "Safe Sex and HIV Prevention" expert forum. Please resubmit your question there using the same title and add the phrase, "resubmitted form the Fatigue and Anemia Forum." Thank you.

What's safe for us to eat?
First time exposure to HIV. Am I infected?
