K-Nine, & rest of the symptomatic HIV Neg group
      #14444 - 01/04/01 09:26 AM

I too, have had the same types of symptoms. If yours have been as bad as mine, I can assure you that they are not in your head.

For me it has been over 2 years since I first got sick. On the plus side, the symptoms have gone from almost completely debilitating to the point where now it is just more of nuisance on most days.

While the symptoms seem to most closley match HIV, I have had a recent test which is 2 years out and I am negative.

The reason that I keep checking this board is not because I think that I have HIV, but because the symptoms are so close, that I am sure that many people here are going through the same thing.

After a ton of different tests, the only thing that consistently shows up outside of normal limits on me, is that my CD8+ cells are low. With CD4+ cells being on the upper end of normal, this is completly the opposite of what you might see if the cause of my illness were HIV.

Lately there have been a few articles printed on reduced immune function with normal cd4s and low CD8s and HIV neg. The articles relate these findings with syndroms such as Gulf War Syndromes, Chronic Fatigue syndromes and Fibromyalagia(SP)syndromes.

I would be very interested to see if other people with symtpoms such as mine have simaliar T-cell tests. I have found that it is difficult to get a DR to do a TCell test but after being rather insistant he did it.

If you are going through the same thing, try and get your physician to do a tcell test, post your results and maybe we will start seeing a trend.

My Doctor tells me it can take years to produce enough antibodies to test positive.

My doctor told me that there were only 9 HIV+ people in our state. Our doctor's must have gone to the same school of uneducated idiots!
