Please help me understand!!!!
Dec 7, 2003

Please don't ignore me 'cause this is the 6-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? Please explain this...I am waiting for Your reply.. Please help!!!

Response from Dr. Cohen

Sorry - we don't mean to frustrate you - but you are sending your questions about early exposure and symptoms to the forum about treatment - and so if you send your question to the forum about early exposure and diagnosing based on these symptoms - they can readily answer your questions...
