Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Majed,

Ten negative HIV-1/2 and p24 antigen tests out to four years from the time of your potential exposure are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how.

A valid negative HIV tests trumps any and all symptoms each and every time. I cannot diagnose your symptoms over the Internet; however, I can tell you, with great certainty, what's not causing them: it's not HIV! See your doctor for an evaluation if you are having persistent problems. Continuing to perseverate on HIV, when there is incontrovertible evidence that this is not the cause of your problem, is counterproductive.

Do you have a rare group of HIV? No. Your symptoms are not worrisome for or even suggestive of HIV disease.
