Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi,

All of your tests are negative. Your doctor advised you are 100% OK. Your ENT doctor advised your lymph nodes are not enlarged. Your dentist advised you do not have oral hairy leukoplakia.

My assessment remains unchanged. Your fears are irrational and absolutely unwarranted. Psychotherapy (counseling) is recommended to help you confront and conquer these irrational fears.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi,

Your question is: "Am I paranoid?" The answer is an unqualified yes!

I tend to doubt your roommate was a homicidal syringe-wielding maniac who injected you with fresh HIV-tainted blood while you were in a drunken slumber. Your symptoms are not worrisome for HIV. If my reassurance is not sufficient for you to put your irrational worries permanently to rest, get a single HIV-antibody test. The result will undoubtedly be negative.

Dr. Bob
