Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Fan from Pakistan,

If I was confident that you are HIV negative after your three-month negative test, why would you think I would possibly change my "oponion" now that you've had unnecessary and excessive additional negative test at 6 months, 7 months, 8 months and 10 months?????

Yes, I stand by my opinion. The pain in your legs is unrelated to HIV, because you don't have HIV! Sorry, but I can't diagnose the cause of your leg pain problem over the Internet. What I can do is advise you with great certainty what is not causing the problem. It's not HIV!

"Shud" you stop testing? Of course you "shud."

"Shud" you stop worrying? Of course you "shud."

Remember, my advice was to stop testing and worrying seven months ago. Now let's see if you listen to me this time. I sincerely hope you do.

Be well. Stay well!

Dr. Bob

Back for a kiss doc!
