First Off, have you been tested for blood deseases?
How long ago was your possible exposure?
Have you had any other related symptom?

I also have it but tested neg 5 months after the possible exposure. The thing that worries me is why so early?

Guess, you've been posting about your glossodynia a lot. Even after your negative results,you cannot accept that fact. There are other factors that can cause this symptom: long term medication, allergic reactions to certain household items (soap, etc), even low iron in blood. I suggest you try to identify the cause of your tongue problem by eliminating each suspected cause. I have the same problem, and like you, did many HIV elisa tests. Finally, I found out that my cause was the statin (cholesterol) drug I was on. So, Guess, and all out there with tongue problems, and HIV -ve, believe your results, and try to find other causes for your tongue problem. Sometimes its stress. Most of the time, there are other causes. Keep posting and good luck.
