My World Has Come Crashing Down
      02/03/09 02:50 PM

I just found out my qualitative PCR RNA test came back positive. The lab ran the same sample again and also did a HIV Duo test (antibody) which came back negative. They have frozen the unused blood sample to retest in 3 days time when they next run the tests.

My exposure was multiple unprotected blowjobs, deep french kissing (with cuts in my mouth from grinding my teeth), rubbing my penis on/near her vagina (but no penetration). She also was rubbing a lot of cocaine on her tongue during this whole time.

3 days later, I woke up with stomach pain (and had to go to the bathroom), pains in my armpit/groin/neck, and headache with pain behind one eye, and nausea on/off throughout the day. The headaches went away after 2 days but the nausea and body pains continued for 5 days. I thought it might be due to the antibiotics I was on.

I tested 15 days after the exposure. The only prior exposure was 30 days ago (unprotected blowjobs). Before that, I had tested negative with the appropriate window period.

My questions are:

1. Could this be a false positive, or is that wishful thinking since they tested the sample twice. What causes a false positive for a qualitative test?

2. How long after ARS do antibodies show up? Would the negative HIV Duo test be reasuring or is it too early?

I feel like I cant breathe. I always thought what I did was not a risk for HIV and that symptoms cant appear so soon. Was I wrong?
