Response from Dr. Frascino
I can't diagnose the cause of your lymphadenopathy over the Internet. What I can do with absolute certainty is advise you that HIV is not the cause. Your negative ELISA, and undetectable PCR and NAT out to 180 days are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. My advice is that you stop chasing a disease you could not possibly have.
