Severe symptoms, falling lymphocytes

Jul 2, 2011

Dear Doctor,

I had one PCR positive but all other negative so far!

Severe symptoms, falling lymphocytes Jun 26, 2011

Dear Dr,

I would greatly appreciate a quick answer since I need to take some urgent action.

I am really ill and have been so for many months in something that looks like HIV.

Both CD4 and CD8 falls at the same rate. Ratio around 1.4, CD4 350..

Will CD8 start increase soon? If not nothing defends me from getting more ill in numerous symptoms.. :(

Response from Dr. Holodniy You don't indicate what the results of your HIV tests were.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I don't understand what other tests you have had. What are the results of the HIV screening and confirmatory antibody tests? You need to discuss the results with your doctor.

Should I be worried?
