How can I diagnose whats going on?

Mad,

You can't. You are not a doctor. Go see a doctor.

You are conclusively hiv negative. You do not have hiv. A doctor can help you - we cannot. There is nothing more we can do for you here. If you insist on coming here to question your hiv negative status, you will be given another time out.

Hallo again,

It's one year of my fight with strange symptoms. As I still haven't found any solution I would like to ask you one more question. Recently I found on the medical web site that at the beginning of HIV disease the virus was called HTLV3. HTLV it's a similar virus to HIV itself and it also affects lymphocytes.

Does standart elisa tests also detect HTLV 1 and 2 type virus? Or do I need to perform special tests against this virus?
Does somebody have some information about HTLV virus?

Thanks a lot,
Regards

mad,

The hiv ELISA test only tests for hiv. You need different testing for HTLV - and you'll have to ask your doctor about it. HTLV isn't hiv and this is an hiv website.

You may also benefit from seeking counseling for dealing with your health related anxieties. We cannot help you with that here.

It's a 1992 article that doesn't hold water.

Madday,

You couldn't find any follow-up because there is no such thing. We've learned an awful lot about hiv in the past fifteen years and things have moved on since 1992.

It's time for you to move on as well. You do not have hiv.

If you need a time out to get the message, that can be arranged. None of our answers are going to change. You've been posting here for nearly a year now - you should understand this by now.

You do not have hiv.

Ann

Welcome to all.

I'm struggling with similar problems as moon29: sexual intercourse and followed by the symptoms of acute HIV infection (described in a medical literature as SYMPTOMS of ACUTE HIV INFECTION, something what students of medicine learn as the symptoms of ACUTE HIV INFECTION).

I would like ask you one more question: if the HIV tests are so reliable how can you explain the cases of "Idiopathic CD4+ T-lymphocytopenia" (non-HIV Aids)??

http://www.autoimmune.com/Non-HIVAIDSGen.html

http://www.jci.org/97/3/672/pdf

Why the hell U.S. National Institutes of Health sough the people with the disease mentioned above if such a disease (non-HIV Aids) doesn't exists according to you

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?cond=%22Lymphopenia%22

And last but not least why the people are diagnosed with such a disease (non-HIV Aisd) if it doesn't exist???

Kind Regards to all,

madday

P.S. I dared to write here as I asked you a similar question about non-HIV Aids cases described in TIME magazine from 1992 few months ago. I got answers that that there is not follow up, that matter doesn't exist nowadays as the tests are so advanced etc. The problem is that there is follow up.... You can find many cases like this DIAGNOSED by the doctors and descrlibled on different forums.

P.S.2. As you wish ROD ;)

Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

YOU ARE NEGATIVE!

Maddy,

If you'd read your own links, you'd have the answers to your questions. They don't call it NON-HIV aids for nothing.

You do not have hiv. If you have some non-hiv problem, then you're on the wrong website. Whatever is going on with you is outside our remit. You do not have hiv and this is an hiv website.

Given your previous history on this forum, I'm going straight to a time out. While you may have a problem, whatever that problem is, it is NOT hiv.

I haven't posted anything for a while. I am from Eastern Europe. 4 years ago as a result of sexual intercourse I contracted some hiv like disease. I stoped to have sexual relations with my wife, she left me. I did it although I was told it was all in my mind. I made many different antibody and PCR blood tests.

Recently I have met a girl. I told her my story, I wanted to believe the whole medical world is right, it was all into my mind. We had unprotected sex.

Now since several days she has severe night sweats, exactely the same as I had at the begining of my disease.

I'am devastated - now I ruined not only my life, not only my relation with my wife but also life of some innocent person. Don't know what to do whom to ask for any help.

Stres, anxiety, rumours, regrets this all is excluded from her case.

All the best to all

Your gf's symptoms do not disprove everything that has been said to you before. You still do not have HIV.

We are not going to indulge you in another round of exchanges about your situation. If you continue to return and insist that you are HIV+ when the science says otherwise, you will very quickly find yourself getting banned from the site permanently, since you have already had two Time Outs.

Whatever is going on with you (and your gf) has nothing to do with HIV.

Also, until you are in a securely monogamous relationship in which both partners have tested negative for HIV, you ought to be using condoms.

Consider yourself warned.
