Hi Dr. Holodniy,
If one tests negative at 4, 12 and 23 weeks yet still continues to experience weird symptoms (prostatitis, floaters, dry eyes, dry skin, etc.) should he test for an undetectable strain of HIV1, order a more specialized test (ie viral load), or test for HIV2 or simply check himself into a mental institution? I have been experiencing these symptoms after a possible exposure with no other explanation given. Furthermore, these things never happened to me before. My Dr. doesn't seem to be concerned but I still harbor anxiety...(wouldn't I be testing positive if HIV were the culprit?) You are the man!
