Possible hiv risk

Sep 23, 2009

Here is my story. On August 2nd i got a DUI, and I had to get some blood drawn at the cop station. There was a Phlebotomist on site at the cop station. Then about a week and a half to two weeks later i started getting night Sweats, unable to sleep, loss of appetite, kinda of loose stools but not really, light muscle aches, felt like i was going to get a soar throat but i didnt. Im really worried that the syringe he used was possibly contaminated with hiv and im going through ARS. im really scared of getting tested. what do you think?

Response from Dr. Frascino


What do I think? Well, I think your HIV fears are irrational and unwarranted. I also think you shouldn't drive while drunk. Drunk driving will kill you much more quickly and efficiently than HIV/AIDS.
