Fever and Dentist
      #19837 - 07/28/01 01:03 AM

Hello all, question for you. I been tested at 3 weeks w/PCD/DNA test - both negative, then at 11.5 weeks on elisa antibody (home access) - that negative.

Well, went to the dentist yesterday, drilling for fitting of a crown. Today I woke up and felt horrible and now have a fever.

Has anyone gotten a fever from their Dentist after drilling - I 'doubt' it is HIV infection related cause the CDC says people develop symptoms within 1-2 months. If the CDC says that, it must be that or less since they are soooo conservative.

What do you think?

You're not showing HIV symptoms related to your Dentist:
1) The day after is WAY the heck too soon.
2) There hasn't been a case of Dentist-related HIV in many, many years.
3) 3 weeks is a tad early for a DNA test, but the 11.5 week Elisa pretty much takes care of that.

It's not HIV.
