HIV? or......CMV

Feb 14, 2005

I'm a healthy male worried I might test Positive for HIV because of my night sweats, swollen salivary glands, neck and groin.

OR could it really be CMV? Are the symptoms similar?

Are there lots of other no name virus' that could be posing as HIV?

I'm worried, but the docs must be something else.... My HIV test was done at 6 weeks. It's now 7 weeks, post risk date....


Response from Dr. Horwath

If the HIV test is negative, then you are not infected with HIV. If you would like further reassurance, repeat the test at 3 months post-exposure. Better yet, avoid future exposure to the virus and practice safe sex.
