Pianos Rock (The Sequel)

Jun 22, 2009

Sup Doc,

Its the piano dude again -- you know the one who did the DNA by PCR test, then the ten week antibody (both negative). Well, I was quite content on accepting the fact that I was HIV- until I acquired a rather curious discomfort in my lower abdominals and in my testicular region. It doesn't really hurt, it just feels like some extreme pressure is being applied to my pelvis. The pressure comes and goes, but my testicles are still very sensitive. Theres no swelling that I know of, and I'm sure it isn't vasocongestion because I've masturbated and its still there.

This can't be late ARS can it? Should I test again?

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Piano Man,

The answers to your questions are no and no.

Dr. Bob

Can excessive gas be part of ARS?
Woo hoo and a bit of an essay ;)
