How will i know i have got rid of Syphillis?

Jul 17, 2010

I have been diagnosed and treated for Syphillis. Doctor gave me 3 doses of Benzathine 6 penicillin 2.4 MU in Nov 2009. How ill i know if i have got rid of the disease after the treatment. Even after 8 months i still have got symotoms of syphillis( as read over the net)- headaches, tiredness, hairfall(severe), pain in legs, stiffness of neck etc. i consulted my doctor again and according to her my disease is cured and i need to wait for atleast 2 years, but the symptoms scare me. Please help

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That should be an appropriate treatment course for syphilis. Those symptoms are very nonspecific and could be the result of many other things.

CD4 continuous down,VL still undetectable
Atripla or MS
