You're not hopeless -- you're HIV-negative!

If you continue to experience symptoms you should talk to your doctor about other possibilities -- but after all that time and all those tests, there's NO WAY that you have HIV.

steve, thank you for your opinion. you are right, I have done enough tests about 20 months. but is it hard to accept the results .(symptoms) and I have read some people never have antibodys. Gman,Steve,Debtex you know about such people ? I am not a nutcase, the symptoms are not only in my head. What would you do? Sorry for the bad english and thank you for your help! Tom

Believe me you are not a nutcase. There are many more like you and me with the same problem. If you would like to share your story with others like you then visit http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/aunknownstdviralillnessreading those stories can comfort you in not being a nutcase and people share tips. However like I know being really preoccupied with all this also causes stress and stress and worry is bad for your body and resistance. Decide for youself if you want to join the group. People including my doctors and even family still don t acknowledge I am sick (this is very hard of course). I wish you all the strengt and you should consider to stop testing and just visit your doctor with complaints of your symptoms not a theory about undetectable HIV (even if you are right).

I do NOT know of anyone who doesn't eventually create antibodies. I've heard of people who have undetectable viral loads, but everyone I know of HAS eventually created antibodies. you are negative. I'm not doubting the symptoms that you are feeling, but they are not related to hiv.

best of luck,
prayers
debbie

Tom,

Virtually everyone creates antibodies. I've only heard of one person who didn't, and his case was written up in the medical journals it was so rare. You could NOT have this problem, because you also had two PCR-DNA tests. They don't look for antibodies -- they look for the virus itself.
