I tested negative at 22 weeks and I am wondering if you can she some of your expertise on my problem. My legs are so stiff and I can see the blood vessels more so now than ever before in my life. I am in my early 50's and I am wearing vascular -support hose because of the leg problem. They are mottled and swollen and hurt. does this sound like a seroconversion -LATE- because I am approaching 24 week and last tested at 22 weeks and will get tested at 26 weeks again. I AM IMMOBILIZED WITH FEAR -- Please help me

Response from Dr. Bartlett

I know this is a very anxious period of time, and I am glad that you are following through with your testing. Your symptoms do not sound HIV-related at all to me, but please complete your testing. Good luck.
