Response from Dr. Frascino


You may be "almost 100%" convinced you are HIV+. However, I, on the other hand, am 100% sure you are not! You've had six negative HIV tests out to six months. You just can't get any more negative than that! HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. A negative HIV test outside the window period trumps "symptoms" each and every time. I can't diagnose the cause of your symptoms over the Internet, but I can, with great assurance, advise you what's not causing them: it's not HIV! Your HIV fears are unwarranted.
