very skinny
      #32166 - 04/17/02 01:17 AM

Please help me. I am unsure of my HIV status. I am very skinny and can eat quite a bit and dont really gain, actually, i can gain, but lose weight very fast. I do drink alot of coffee ,maybe that has something to do with it. I havent been majorly sick ,except for bouts with hives . I am 30 years old, and am becoming embarrased about being skinny. Is aids wasting such that you just cant keep weight on without fevers or diarreah?

No one here can tell you whether your weight lose is due to HIV or not. It sounds like this is something you have been dealing with for quite sometime, perhaps all your life?

It's quite possible that you just happen to have a high metabolism. It could be from other causes. The best thing to do is to talk with your doctor about it. When you see your doctor, you can ask for an HIV test. Then you won't have to be unsure of your status.
