Apr 20, 2010

Hello Nelson i have a question. I am 24 and had a possible exposure to HIV years ago i took a Elisa test 2 years ago because of some weight loss. the test came back negative since then i have lost so much more mass/weight in the face,neck,arms,lower legs ect. I can olny gain in the breast/stomach also my stools have changed over the years light color and fatty like i am not getting nutrients i do have a kinda high bilirubin and i am always tired/fatige i have not seen a doc since i had my test. my family is very concerned about my health i am very worried it could have been a false negative test. what would u recommend me to do please help. the only other thing i could think of is to see a gastro doc for mabe Malabsorbtion or someting in the gut.

Thanks and i greatly appreciate it.

Response from Mr. Vergel

I would go see a gastroenterologist. There are many symptoms that seem like "HIV infection" that have nothing to do with HIV, and worrying about it needlessly will only bring stress that can affect your health.
