Symptoms high CD4 count
Feb 23, 2001

Dear DR. I had a high risk exposure 4 years ago(unprotected sex with a female hooker)exactly 3 weeks later I came down with very severe flu like symptoms(sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, fatigue, fever).Since then I started taking the EIA for HIV 1-2 every month all the way to month 36 also a VL and a pcr test for hiv 1 at month 09.Unfortunately my last 3 girlfriends experienced the same flu like symptoms after 21 days of having intercourse with me.Im suffering weird symptoms like retracting gums, dry mouth, hair thinning (head and body) also a reddish tint on my hair??? I had a cd4 count last week results were: cd4 939 cd8 518 relation 1.86. I need your advise Im going crazy.... thanks

Response from Dr. Bartlett

Since all of your HIV tests, antibodies and DNA and RNA PCR, are negative, you do not have HIV infection.

Pls help....
