      #42760 - 10/31/02 08:43 AM

I had a Negative antibody test one year after exposure to HIV, It was a 3rd generation antibody for HIV 1/2 is what they told me. Despite having a tremdous amount of symptoms and not completely feeling normal to this day. Have I ruled out HIV infection, can i leave this board and move on.
Thanks

Symptoms were, within a couple of days of exposure, starting with prostatitis, nausea. At two weeks, coated white tounge- geographic toungue. Dry mouth, weight loss, joint pain, mostly upper body elbows shoulders and neck. Throat Drainage, mild sore throat, tenderness under jaw. Burning and sweaty palms. These symptoms continue for two months. Most symptoms fade, but toungue, mouth and thoat problems continue until present. Geographic toungue now gone, but prostatitis has come back as well as the weight that I initially dropped. Have tested negative to hiv rna pcr at 3 months and negative to hiv antibody at 3,6, and 11 months. Also tested for Hep B,C, mono, at 11 months as well as all other std's. Lab results reveal a slightly lower wbc count at 4500 as of late, ranging from 4700 to 3700. Any advice would be appreciated
thanks

nearly all of your symptoms are not even ARS. When ARS occur, they usually last no more than two weeks and this occurs within the first month upon initial infection. Your sypmtoms might be some type of infection but not HIV. Your tests prove this

Yes you can move on. A 6 month window period is considered "conservative" so a year would be twice that. Even those rare cases of late conversions they always turned positive by 1 year.
