please help me understand!!!

Dec 4, 2003

Please don't ignore me 'cause this is the 5-th time I'm asking. It's not 3 months yet after my possible HIV exposure so I can not rely on my test results. I am worried A LOT about my lymph nodes. Please explain how does the infected person USUALLY feel the lymph nodes during primary HIV infection: 1.Are they USUALLY tender or firm? 2.Are they MUCH bigger than before infection? 3. Are they USUALLY painfull? 4. Does reactive lymph nodes indicate the start of antibodies development? I am waiting for Your reply.. Please help!!!

Response from Dr. Wohl

I am sorry but this is not a forum to discuss whether someone is HIV infected or not or whether they have acute HIV. Persons with HIV infection look to this site to get answers regarding the issues related to starting HIV therapy. DW
