I have taken countless HIV test that have all been negative since the condom broke 3 months ago. Last week I had a spontaneous right pnuemothorax, and asked to get a HIV test. They had the instant ones that just should whether anything active showed up, it was negative. Could the pnuemothorax have anything to do what HIV or is it just consequential?

Pnuemothorax can be caused by the following:

Diseases of the airways - Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (especially when emphysema and lung bullae are present), acute severe asthma, cystic fibrosis

Infections of the lung - Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP), tuberculosis, necrotizing pneumonia

Interstitial lung disease - Sarcoidosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, histiocytosis X, lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM)

Connective tissue diseases - Rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, polymyositis and dermatomyositis, systemic sclerosis, Marfan's syndrome and Ehlers–Danlos syndrome

Cancer - Lung cancer, sarcomas involving the lung

All those things that can be the cause and you want to focus on the ONE thing you have tested negative for already.

Calm down. If you had a negative test at 3 months after possible exposure. Your issues have nothing to do with HIV. See a doctor and get tested for some other stuff.
