What are these syptoms about? Thank you he wont go to the doctor!!

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Stomach pain and vomiting could represent many possible disease processes, including some opportuniistic infections. It could also be the result of exposure to a toxin, or side effects from medicines. The only way to get to the bottom of this is for your friend to seek medical care.

Exposure to blood
Is this the right test for HIV?
