Buttocks and 6 Months

May 24, 2004

Hi Dr Bob, After going through all the posted ARS symptoms, I have had aching legs and burning hands for months as well as dizziness. I tested at 6 months -ve. Can I build my house extension or should I be worried? Respectfully Matt

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Matt,

OK, you've tested negative at six months, so we know absolutely, positively, and unquestionably that you are HIV negative.

Regarding your next question "Can I build my house extension or should I be worried?" Well Matt, I don't have an answer for that, because I don't know if you even know which end of a hammer to use. So whether or not you can build your house extension or not would be total conjecture for me.

Matt, I can't tell you what is causing your aching legs, burning hands, and dizziness over the Internet, but I can tell you what's not causing it. It's not HIV. OK?

Stay well. Good luck with the home improvement project.

Dr. Bob

Dr. Bob... How can I go about making donation?
