Confudes, classical symptoms and negative, even one year after risk
Jul 11, 2011
Hi Mr Frasino,
After (how stupid!) a one-time unsafe sexact I had gruesome symptoms as weightloss (from 83 down to 77 kg). This weigthloss happened in the period 6 weeks after the risk. Later (so from the 7 th till the 12th week) I had other symptoms: night sweats and herpes zoster in my groin. Also much transpiration in general, but this happened a little later, so around week 10-12 after risk. Its now over year later and I have had so much tests, most in the period from 8 months till 13 months after risk. All this 14 tests (ABOTT rapid tests and EIA, immonoassay tests at different hospitals) came back negative. One hospital gave me an exact degree of 0,23 (EIA), while starting at 1,00 they suspect an hiv-infection, which must of course be confirmed by a BLOTtest. As I had the classical hiv-symptoms (weightloss, nightsweats) I am now very confused. Can I be happy with this negative results? Or am I infected with a variant of the (HIV)virus on which the tests do not react?
Response from Dr. Frascino
You're "confudes" and worried about your "transpiration"??? OK, if you say so.
Regarding your 14 negative HIV tests over the past year, exactly which part of "HIV negative" are you confused about???
Whatever is causing your symptoms, one thing is certain: It's not HIV!
