HIV Life >> I Just Tested Positive

Unsure of diagnosis
      03/02/06 06:39 PM

Ok, talk about confusing. I had an affair for a month, then 3 weeks later got really sick - fever, fatigue, nausea, myalgia, WBC very low, liver function tests abnormal. I have Lyme antibody, but not the disease. Lupus tests negative. Initial HIV test result I got Tues. - ELISA positive, Multi-spot negative, Western Blot indeterminate. I know Lyme antibody can made the ELISA false-positive - or is that just wishful thinking on my part? I think I had acute retroviral syndrome - any opinions? I had repeat HIV test drawn Tues., will be 3 weeks for result. Hematologist I'm seeing seems clueless about HIV, and thinks I had mono. (again, acute retroviral syndrome is described as a mononucleosis-like illness)
