Could my symptoms be suggestive of HIV? Could all these be possible in early infection. 3 months to 9 months?

Please help me.

Response from Dr. Wohl

The elevated liver test, platelets and eosinophils point to something being wrong. This doe snot sound like HIV. You should be tested for HIV, HBV, HCV, and syphilis but there are other non-STI illnesses that also may need to be investigated. Please consult you physician.
