Response from Dr. Frascino
Your repeatedly negative HIV-antibody tests out to eight months; including rapid tests, ELISA and Western Blot; plus your undetectable quantitative PCR RNA and qualitative PCR pro-viral DNA are definitive, conclusive, WOO-HOO-able and extremely excessive!
Your CD4 count of 423 is completely normal (normal range 354 to 1,100). By the way, there was no clinical indication to even order this test.
I can't diagnose the cause of your symptoms over the Internet, but what I can do with great certainty is advise what's not causing them: It's not HIV!
My advice is to see your general medicine doctor for evaluation of any persistent symptoms. But remember, HIV is not your problem. From an HIV perspective you should stop testing, stop worrying and start WOO-HOO-ing.
