CD4/230 what symptoms to expect>
      #66495 - 06/30/03 04:35 AM

I just got my cd4 count and the only symptom I have is an oral thrush.Before that it was a geographic tongue.I don't know what to expect in time to come though I am on meds now.The problem on the tongue is now a whitish coat usually first thing in the morning.
I'm very ignorant on this pls help.

The meds is efavirenz & combivir.I get paranoid but now its not so bad as its almost two weeks since i started.

When i was first tested, the result was reactive and it was sent to be confirmed on the western was positive.

Are all these test reliable? and can the cd4 be an accurate test that you are finally Hiv+?

A CD4 count is not an accurate indicator that someone is infected. However the fact you have had a reactive ELISA confirmed with a positive WB is a very accurate indicator of infection.
