HIV Transmission and Education >> Am I Infected?


White cell count
      10/25/01 09:40 PM

Here I am at 29 days. I tested for HIV a few days ago, but will not get results until Monday. I tested now because I have had a sore throat and swollen nodes in my neck for the last 2 weeks (no fever or aches, but no cold). Today some test results came back: no hep, no mono and normal blood workup. I assume this includes white cell count.

My question: if these symptoms were ARS would I not have elevated white cells. I thought the lymph nodes produce/store white cells. If the HIV test is negative it should tell me these are not ARS symptoms because the symptoms started at least 10 days before I was tested.

I guess I am looking for some comfort that my normal white cell count means something as I have 4 more days to wait for the HIV test.
