Today I recieved my six months labwork. I was diagnosed HIV Positive in August, I believe I was infected in July. I started to seroconvert so I sought a HIV test. I began treatment immediately after finding out as I have private insurance through my parents. I began Atripla in September with a Viral Load of 29191 copies and a CD4 count of 208. Today I got my labs back and my CD4 count is 891,CD4 % of 42 and Viral Load undectectable. I have no side effects from my treatment except maybe one day out of the month that I wake up nauseous. Is this normal for a CD4 rebound like this? I'm happy for my lab results but am a little shocked by the numbers.
