A negative test,but still worried,please post

Dec 18, 2003

Doctor, All the time you ignore me,Six months before I had an unprotected sex with a sex worker and felt body ache,loss of apettite,tiredness and few other symptoms. On 27 th day and 6th month after my exposure I tested negative at my doctors office. Still I fear about HIV as I still have the same apetite loss ,skin dryness and tiredness. Please dont ignore me as I may have a medical inspection next month in Muscat.PLS.....................

Response from Dr. Frascino


Well, I'm not exactly sure what information you would like from me. A negative test six months after a potential exposure can only mean one thing. Can you guess what that is? Yep! You're HIV-negative!

I can't tell you over the Internet what's causing your symptoms, but I can tell you what's not causing them. It's not HIV. OK? Now, where the hell is Muscat?

Happy Holidays.

Dr. Bob

Regarding your TV apperances...
I'm infected with HIV & I was performing only unprotected oral sex
