Get numb fingers during the night.... do I need to test again or are my symptoms something else... please answer.... I cant vote in november sorry

Response from Dr. Frascino


You don't mention what type of potential HIV exposure you might have had; however, assuming there are no extenuating circumstances and you had a "routine" potential exposure, such as unprotected sex, repeatedly negative HIV tests out to 13 weeks would be considered definitive. Whatever is causing your symptoms, one thing is certain: It's not HIV. See your doctor for a routine medical checkup if your problems are persistent or bothersome.
