Unless you plan on getting really really stressed out with moving (like pulling your hair out stressed) and unless you are going through ARS symptoms (which it doesn't sound like you are) chances are very good nothing will change much with your vl or cd4 counts.

Since you tested yearly you can say with some certainty that you were infected in the last year and a half. Your levels have evened out by now. They won't change a whole lot by moving. (Unless you're like me and get sick from moving, but I have another condition that makes any change very stressful) then you are good to go. Just do some research into the area. Find a local ASO or clinic that deals with HIV in your new location. Call and make an appt before you move for like a week after your planned move date. Then you won't worry about that cause it will be planned out already.

I know it's hard not to stress out about it, but chances are it will take a few weeks to get in with a HIV specialist where you are anyway. So why start with one and then have to go through it all again when you move. It's a pain in the ass with the paperwork and lab tests and the intake. So do yourself a favor and do it once. I made the mistake of doing it then moving, just to have to do it all over again within a months time. Believe me when I say it's better to just do it once. Lol
