Can early infection of HIV fail syphilis treament?



After a possiblie exposure(read my previous post at: I was confirmed of having infected by syphilis as my VDRL test came back reactive with 1:16 titre. My anti HIV test EIA method came back -ve while Hep B surface antigen also came back -ve. The TPHA test also came back +ve confirming i'm infected with syphilis. This was in week 5.

After that I took treatment for syphilis. My doctor said it's going to be a month treatment. First he gave me a Penicillin jab and some medication for 2weeks. During the 2 weeks i had tinglish feeling on and off muscle & joint pain. I got mouth ulser too.

After the 2 weeks I was given another Penicillin jab and somemore medication. My medication will end this monday(19 June 06) but I'm not seeing 6 Maculopapular type of rash which doesn't itch. I do have light tinglish feeling and also light muscle pain.

Now my question is:

Is it possible if I've coinfection of HIV & syphilis? Is possible because of that my syphilis treatment failed?
