Dear Paul,

You have done some great research, and it is very good to have that knowledge at this particular period of your life. But we all have to know (probably me first - as I don;t beleive in anything atthe moment) that symptoms mimic lot of other illnesess and if you look on the net something else you will find that almost 80% of symptoms are related to hundreds of different illnesses.

That is the main reason that doctors refuse to make a diagnose based on symptoms, not only with HIV but anything else. It is also due to fact that different people feel differently about the same type of pain or symptom, and further to that they explain differently.

And how many times I went to doctor and forgot to tell him about this or that, and than went back again and than forot to tell about something else.

So, no sickness of any (half) serious nature can be done with symptoms to the best specialists in the world. That is why there are so many tests, scans, biopcies etc - for confirmation what it is.

In lot of instances we are talking about risks too. High, low, medium, percentage etc etc. We also do know that lot of couple hetero, gays, lesbians etc live together one HIV+ one not and they don't get infected with numerous unprotected sex encounters. Than someone gets it after first exposure because condom broke. We will never know and doctors don;t know enough - there was not enough studies to know more precise - that is why they suggest to do the test.
