Response from Ms. Southall
Hi If there have been no other exposures since 2010 the results that you received in 2012 were conclusive that you are HIV free. What I would recommend is if the symptoms continue follow up with your health care provider for evaluation. But rest assured it is not HIV.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
