Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres

It seems you did not have contact with HIV,but you have hepatic test elevations that need to be evaluated.You will need work up to exclude hepatitis C and B ,as well as other viral diseases that may cause some of your symptoms,as CMV and Epstein Barr.Go to your doctor and request those tests.
