I've got a problem, results
« on: July 19, 2006, 07:50:23 AM »
Hallo to everybody,

I need your help. Over 3 months before I had sex with prostitute without protection. One week after I got fever, I started to swept during nights and days, white tongue (it occurred later to be candida albicans) then after four weeks sore throat for over two weeks (no medicins worked), something with my sight (I couldn't stand the day light), I'm week, feel mentally worse than before - slower thinking.

I did IV generation tests at 15 and 21 day, then after 8 weeks and after 12 weeks all negative.

I know that this tests should be conclusive but as I still have some of the symptoms: I swept very very much without any reason (esp. my head and neck), withe tongue (candida albicans), I'm very weak and mentally not so fast as before.

Should I still be worry about HIV?
Please help me!

madday,

You have conclusively tested negative for hiv. You do NOT have hiv.

Whatever is going on with you has nothing to do with hiv as you are not hiv positive. You need to go see your doctor to find out what is going on.

You have reliably tested negative for HIV. You are HIV negative. Period. End of story.

If you are continuing to have troubling symptoms you should discuss them with your doctor. Having symptoms doesn't change the reliability of your negative HIV test. You're still HIV negative.

You also need to learn from this experience and in the future always be sure to wear a condom when you have intercourse. No exceptions.

Good luck with sorting out the real cause of your symptoms.

We're not in the guessing business here about symptoms.

What we can say is that from what you have reported you have reliably tested negative for HIV. So that is eliminated as a possible cause of your symptoms.

Now you need to check things out with your doctor to see what is going on.

Cheers,

The PCRs are very sensitive tests and the problem sometimes is with a false positive, although not false negative.

They do need to be done at an appropriate time. Did you have either of those tests done, and if so when in relation to your unprotected incident and what were the results?

I did PCR-RNA 10 weeks after it was negative. On the result was written "The assay was performed by genetics means using PCR method (Polymerase Chain Reatraction). As a template RNA extracted from patient's serum was used. The outcome of the test is negative".

I'm wondering if the virus can exist in red cells but not in the serum? And what the difference between PCR-RNA and PCR-DNA? Is it possible that outcomes of this tests are differ?

Thank you very much for your patience,

I'm still very worried as I've got very strange symptoms.

The RNA is a viral load test that measures the level of RNA of the virus in the blood. The pcr proviral DNA test measures the DNA created in infected cells. This DNA is created by infected human cells. The proviral DNA test is a virus detected/virus not detected type of test whereas the RNA test is a viral load test. That's how I understand the two types of test. Both have chances of false positive with the RNA test having a higher incidence of false positive.

Thank you for your answer. This forum is really helpful and helps not to get mad and gives more hope.

So if took PCR-RNA test and it was negative after 10 weeks should I stay calm and stop worrying about HIV although I still have lot of the symptoms that are peculiar for being infected? Or should I take PCR-DNA?

One more question. I know that PCRs test are designed for HIV1 and they don't search HIV2. Is there any counterpart of PCR that search HIV2?

I know that HIV2 is most common in African countys but today world is becaming more and more globalised and the possibility of getting HIV2 is small but exists!

madday,

You do not need PCR testing and it is not approved for diagnostic purposes anyway. No matter what, the ELISA antibody test is the final answer, even if you tested positive with the PCR test.

Your antibody test at twelve weeks is conclusively negative. You do NOT need further hiv testing over this incident at all.

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL STIs together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

Anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs. You do not need further hiv testing until it is time for your next annual, routine test.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results. Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv.

You are hiv negative today. Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse and you will also be hiv negative tomorrow and every day after that. Use condoms and avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.

If you continue to have physical problems, go see your doctor.

madday,

While I was posting to you, you sent me the following PM and I want to answer it here in the forum.

Quote
Hallo Ann,
I'm madday and I'm a little bit confused. I've been tested negative after conclusive 12 weeks, but I have lot of the symptoms that are peculiar for being infected. And you could think I'm mad but there are lot of people that have the same, like fever, changes inside mouth, weakens, problems with throat, sweat all the time (oily face). And if it was only me I would believe I became mad. What's more I don't believe in such a coincident that my strange problems can cause sth. else than sex with a sex-worker. I know that I should think before but actually I didn't and the only thing I can do is to wait for something that I don't now yet. Over 3 months passed and I'm still in a hell. I've visited many doctors and they can not solve out whats going on with me. This is not only mental problem but something heppens inside my body and it has obvious connection with the few minutes I spent with the sex-worker! If it was only me we could ignore it but there are more people with almost the same symptoms and they all test negative after conclusive 12 weeks.
Will they find any HELP?

I have lot of the symptoms that are peculiar for being infected.

NO, you DON'T have symptoms that are "peculiar" for hiv. The symptoms you are experiencing are shared with hundreds of other illnesses - including stress. Stress really does a number on the body.

There is a very strong mind/body connection and while I don't think your problems are "all in your mind", I do think your mind could be the CAUSE. The only thing you became infected with during your experience with a sex worker is a bad case of guilt and shame. Throw that shit overboard, you don't need it. The only person or thing that is punishing you for visiting a sex worker is YOU. Stop it right now. You visited a sex worker. Big deal. Let it go.

Learn from this experience and from now on, protect your hiv NEGATIVE status and make sure you are using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions, no matter who you are with, sex worker or neighbour or even best friend. Use condoms and avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.

You are reliably, totally HIV negative. This is not scientific inquiry. It is the search for fear. I urge you to revisit your participation in this site. Until you have accepted your negative diagnosis, your scientific inquiries will not be based on rationality, and are therefore worthless as intellectual pursuit.

You've gotten some great advice on here yet you're unable to accept it.  I work in science and with PCR, I support all the advice you've already been given, PCR-DNA, PCR-RNA it it does not matter!. You tested negative and now you need to try and get past this.  You say you're still worried and don't know what to do.  Have you discussed any of these issues with a mental health professional? More testing will not help you, but a good counselor would. Mental issues are just as debilitating and sometimes more so than physical issues.  Don't be afraid, seek some good help for your issue so you can rest easy.  Good luck.

What's to help? You have reliably tested negative. You do not have hiv. Period. End of story.

If you read through the Welcome Thread, you will have read the following:

Quote
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). The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

You have conclusively tested negative. If you cannot accept your negative results, please seek the assistance of a mental health care professional to help you put this behind you. If you continue to come to this forum to question your conclusive result, I will have no choice but to give you a time out in order to encourage you to get the face-to-face help you need.

There is nothing more we can do for you here. Please consider yourself warned.

madday,

You have conclusively tested negative for hiv. How could you possibly transmit a virus you do not have?

You are hiv negative and you do not need further testing unless it is in a year or so time and is part of your routine sexual health care check-up. You do NOT need further testing over recent events. You are hiv negative. Use condoms and you will stay that way.

There is nothing more we can do for you here. If you continue to have physical concerns, discuss them with your doctor.

You are still under a time-out warning.

I know I've been warned. I also know that my test should be concider to be conclusive. And I know also that I still have lot tons of symptoms that I've never experienced before. And I know that there are many people on the forum who have the same symptoms after exposure(f.e. Seiko, Stillil, Scared01). And I know that this can't be just coincident.

Whatever it is, one thing it isn't is HIV.

I honestly think it's time for you to look outside this forum for the answers to your questions.

I've already did what I could! Each available medical check up! Including PCR for HCV and HIV, ultrasono of my head. And nothing.

Thanks for your replay and I promise I will try to keep away from sending another posts.

Hallo again,
I wait for results of following researches:

CD3+CD4-CD8-
CD3+CD4+CD8+

Lymphocytes B and plasmocytes CD19
Lymphocytes Naturel Killers NK CD16 CD56

Does anybody knows what do they mean and why doctor decided to do them for me? I live in Belgium and it is mostly French speaking country, and my French is nod good enough to understood exactly what the Doc. said.

Best wishes and thank you for all,
Madday

Maddy,

The numbers you list don't actuall include any results.

They don't matter anyway. You are conclusively hiv negative. If your doctor can't find what is wrong with your body, get another doctor. Whatever is going on, it isn't hiv. You do NOT have hiv.

You are still under a time out warning. There is nothing more we can do for you here.

CD3 - 78% (61-84%)
CD4 - 40% (32-58%)
w mm3 1089 (288 - 1500)
CD8 - 31% (12-35)
CD4/CD8 1,30 (1,30 - 2,50)

I do not understand the following, what are they?:
CD3+CD4-CD8- 1,1% (<7)
CD3+CD4+CD8+ 3,83% (<3) it is higher what does it mean?
CD19 9,7% (4,0 - 22,0%)
NK CD16 CD56 12,4% (21%)


Herpes Simplex1 - 1,3 (1,1)     what does it mean??

What did the clinic or the doctor say about your results? I don't want to hear that they just gave you the results without and answer.

Said everything OK don't need any further testing. But my doc was absent (holiday) and an other doc gave me the results.

Is it possible that my CD4 rose from 549 two months ago to 1089?
And would it be possible if I was infected have these results?

Thanks a lot RapidRod

Yes it's possible for the CD4 count and NO it's not possible if you were infected without meds. Guess what like you've been told before you are negative.

Thank you very much RapidRod,
I've one more question. How do you think could Herpes Simplex1 cause all of my symptoms?

Take care

maddy,

That is a question for your doctor.

You do not have hiv.

This is your FINAL warning.

HSV1, causes cold sores. Over three Fourths of the population has HSV1. It can come on due to anxiety, stress, stomach disorders, etc. etc.

Stillsick,
I find your words very alarming and I also thing there is somethin strange with the symptoms that many (including me) experience after exposure. It is just not possible to have them all just as a matter of head. There are too many similar examples.

I think that somebody should consider that it is just too much as for imagination and state of mind. Don´t you see the link between exposure, symptoms and HIV matters?

Take care,

madday

Maddy,

I've removed your most unhelpful post from stillsick's thread and placed it here, in your own thread, where you should keep all your additional thoughts or comments. You are in no position to give advice or comment on the situations of others in these forums.

I'm also giving you a four week time out, as you have been warned. Do not create a new account to get around your time out, or you will be permanently banned.

Hallo everybody,

I have tried to stay outside the forum as long as I could. It is 6 months after my exposure ant 2 months after my last test. Still have symptoms. The most annoying is the fever 37,2 C degrees and candida albicans. Will I ever find any help? Really I don't know what to do? How can I diagnose whats going on?

Wishes to everybody,

Madday
