Tested positive on 7-16-12,had a Western blot done on 7/26/12 no results yet.i have a low neutrophils count of 36 an a high lymps count of 55. the first test was a false positive test, that why i went for more testin in Chapel Hill NC, on 7/30/12 but no results yet. They said everything was Fine. but did not tell me any bad news. Should i be worried? i feel fine an they asked did i wonna start meds an i said yes but should i or should i wait for my results to come back.....
