Your opinion please
Mar 1, 2000

Dear Dr:

30 months ago I had unprotected sex with a female sex worker, 3 weeks later I got severe ARS symptoms for 15 days.Since then I started taking the elisa HIV I-II every month all the way to month 20 also a PCR at 6 month and a VL Roche that said undetectable,All the tests have negative or undetectable results.Unfortunately many symptoms are present: dry mouth, chronic allergies that causes a continuous post nasal dripping terrible breath odor also (when you exhale causes a terrible odor)mucous has turned very dry and remains in the back of my sinus cavities IM lost I believe is hiv but my doctor doesn't have any answers because of my negative results.My cd4 count is 784.

Your opinion please, thanks.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

You are lucky. You do not have HIV-- be thankful, and quit doing risky things like having unprotected sex with prostitutes.

not sure
Am I at great risk?
