Please help

Apr 10, 2012

I have tested 30 times with antibody test all came back negative. I have taken 3 western blot test that came back negative. Yet I have hot sweats ,and white coating on tongue.

Please advise of the accuracy of HIV testing. Thanks,

Response from Dr. Young

Thirty times negative and you don't believe the answer? You do not have HIV.

Not every symptom is proof of HIV infection, not sweats or white coating. Sounds like it's time to look elsewhere for the cause of your woes.


high viral count, CD4 count is fine. what to do?
