|Overactive Immune system.. HIV ?
May 6, 2006
Doc. back in 2003, I had protected sex and received oral sex... after that life is not the same..
I have come down with prostate infection, ear infection, and sick very bad.
I am always sick, have sypmtomes all the time.. Such as, Chest Pain upon breathing, not feeling good, fatigue, dizzyness and sometimes crazy symptomes.
I have tested for HIV at 1,3,5, and 12 months using Elisa . Results was negative.
Also HIV 2 testing at 1 year from exposure, result Neg.
I have mouth buring symptomes, joint pain, cheek bone pain, prostate infection, chest pain upon breathing, breathing problem, stomach problem, gastro problem, leg pain.
All this started after the sexual encounter.
My Immune System panel results shows that overactive immune system with Lympocyte and B-Cell.
Do you think I should get tested again ?
I have CFIDS, just like my other doc says.
But seriously, I am only 22 years old male . How can I have so many symptomes ?

I'll be brief.
1. Your HIV risk is negligible to nonexistent.
2. Your repeatedly negative HIV tests out to one year are definitive, conclusive and excessive.
3. You do not have an "overactive immune system," nor do you have CFIDS. Get a second opinion at a medical center or from a certified clinical immunologist. I'm absolutely confident he or she will agree with me.
4. I cannot diagnose the cause of your symptoms over the Internet; however, the vast majority are remarkably consistent with anxiety, irrational fear and psychosomatic illness. I strongly suggest you seek the help of a psychiatrist to help you confront these unwarranted fears.
One thing that's absolutely certain is that HIV is not your problem. No way. No how.
