What are the odds
      #23092 - 10/07/01 11:05 AM

My last "risky" exposure was two years ago ( oral sex to a man - im female ) I took a HIV test last week, it came back negative.......what are the odds of having a false negative?

How about 0%? Given your very low risk and the high accuracy of ELISA tests these days, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Be happy and be safe! :-)

The only reason I even took the hiv test was because I have a burning tongue...( dont know if its stress related or not ) but i also swallowed this mans semen. He said he was tested last year and his test was negative. I'm not sure what else would cause this .... yes, ive been to my doctor, he put me on some meds but it hasnt really helped.

I can understand your anxiety, but a burning tongue is not a typical HIV sympton. Fever, swollen lymph nodes, and a rash would be more likely. I suggest talking to your doctor again and let him/her know that the medication is not working. You don't have HIV, so at least try and start putting your mind to rest while you are working to alleive your tongue problem.

You are quite welcome! :-) I hope you get to feeling better soon. Let us know if you need some more reassurance. I know it has taken several times and countless times of reading this board to get back to a positive frame of mind and not go all over myself because I think these silly symptons that I have are more than they are.

I do know the more you focus on a "symptom" the worse it will get, the mind can play very powerful tricks on you.

Good luck to you and a big *smile* coming at you!
