Jan 17, 2013

A little summary: In may 2009 I had a contact with a woman supossed HIV+ (contact of breast milk in my mouth), I had a severe symptoms for a month: febers, diarrhea, swollen nodes, etc, etc, etc. I had several negative elisa but 14 months post risk i had a positive quick test, but then, several negative elisa again (the last one was 2.5 years post risk) I hava a negative DNA proviral too and an undetectable PCR 9 months post risk.

I have measured my CD4 count for almost 3 years. This is more or less my record:

april 2010 511 (29%) Jul 2010 686 (28%) Oct 2010 520 (24%) cd4/cd8 0.62 Jan 2011 665 (24%) Apr 2011 775 (28%) Oct 2011 594 (30%) march 2012 716 (31%) Dec 2012 (today) 594 (28%) cd4/cd8 0.75

I dont know what happen the worst is that the doctor neither,

Its obvious that I had something, Logically I have tested for other virus but the test are negatives.

Please Help me to analize, i dont need encoraugement, I need only other objetive viewpoint.

Its important to say that my health is really bad, I am always ill, herpes, swollen nodes, recurrent flus, recurrents diarrheas, eyes infections, etc.

Thanks for your time.

Response from Mr. Vergel

Obviously it is not HIV. I would go to an immunologist, although your CD4 cells are pretty much normal for a HIV negative person.

If you have recurrent herpes outbreaks, talk to your doctor about staying on acyclovir for life. Herpes outbreaks activate the immune system and with time may decrease immunity. At least you can tackle one out of your list.

Your physician can run a comprehensive stool analysis, hormonal profile, and other tests that can help him or her evaluate your health.


VL went from undetectable to 51
