Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines.

What else can you ask for as far as symptoms is concern! Im starting to think about /hiv again even though i tested thrice... You can never blame us because this symptoms keep coming... now im thinking that this could be rare... doctors never seems to find out whats wrong with me...

Jegan,your symptoms and your thoughts, feelings and self-diagnosing notwithstanding, you are still HIV negative. Period. End of story.

You say it "didn't work" to see a psychologist. Did you think there was going to be overnight magic and suddenly everything would be gone?

As for your symptoms, you should be discussing them with your doctor if you have persistent ones.

No matter how you try to make it otherwise, this is NOT an HIV situation.

Whatever is going on, it has NOTHING to do with hiv. You are hiv negative, period, end of story.

Work with your doctor to get to the bottom of whatever is going on. You have ruled out hiv - look for other causes.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
