Early wasting???
Oct 12, 2003

Dear Dr. Moyle,

A couple of weeks ago I had a possible exposure. Now pectoral muscles are very flat and almost non-existant. Is this wasting and if so, would it happen this quickly after infection?

Response from Dr. Moyle


I would suggest you get yourself along to your local testing centre and find out your status, request a repeat test a few months later if the first one is negative and of course look at the reasons why you had an exposure and try and avoid this circumstance arising in the future.

Good luck
