LOW WBC and Anemia

Aug 26, 1999

Doctor on one of your answers today you stated that HIV can cause a low WBC with mild anemia a few months after infection. 1.Do most viruses cause this? 2. If one had a low WBC with mild anemia a few months after a possible exposure with joint pain and rashes on chest and back would you continue to suspect HIV after negative testing at the 6 month period? This has happened to me and I am getting nervous but I just tested negative at 8.5 months. 3. Could this be alot of other viruses..I was tested for CMV Syphillis, Hep and EBV all neg? My doctor told me that some people take longer to test positive and just retested me. But it was 8.5 months already. Thanks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy
