Has anyone gotten HIV this way?
      #186873 - 04/18/06 05:06 PM

Has anyone ever gotten HIV from a doctor visit? I realize the case in florida with the dentist is one such instance, but any others? I know I sound crazy but I am worried that my doctor intentionally infected me with a shot. I had ALL the symptoms of ARS and getting a shot of cortisone is my only risk factor. I am concerned because I talked about my political views with the doctor and I don't think he agreed with them.

You didn't have a risk. A cortisone shot is not a risk factor. ARS symptoms are indicative of MANY other things such as the flu or mono. Put HIV out of your mind if this is the only reason you would be concerned about it. It is not a risk.
