It is indeed possible your initial test was a "false positive." You can read about false-positive HIV tests in the archives, as I've discussed them on numerous occasions over the years. Your next step is to have your ELISA test repeated with a confirmatory Western Blot run only if the ELISA is again repeatedly reactive (positive). Write back if you have additional concerns after you get the results of these follow-up tests.
