    • Not to good, I've been having diarrhea that past few days with chills.. I dont know if it's from all the IV antibiotics I had when I was in the hospital. My stomach is constantly making a growling noise. I dont know what to do. As soon as I eat the food go straight threw me and the back of neck hurt like hell it's real tight. My muscle twitching has subsided a little but I still get the tingling in my feet when I lay down and I constantly losing weight. I dont know what else to do. I asked for a western blot test and they refused it. I call all around to try to get one but no labs offer it only the 4th gen. How about you? Are you feeling any better?

        • I saw my infectious disease doctor today and she gave me the DNA test, I have to wait a few days for the results I'm also hoping to do the HIV 2 TNA PCR. That test is like the RNA but better. I'm starting to except being positive I just want the medication so I can feel better. I have another appointment today with hematology/oncology for another set of eyes on me to see if there is anything that was missed.

              • hello neenie, I'm sorry to hear you feel so bad. I really hope that it is not HIV that is causing your infection. i know exactly what you are going through and it is a hell of a hell. I no longer feel any hope for my part but what should we do we have to just wait and hope for the best.

                  • He wants me to give him a stool sample to see if I have parasites. He's doing a MRI of my brain.. He said I do have a infection. So I have to give two stool samples on Thursday and have to wait and see what he find.. but deep down I already know what I have it's just a matter of when it's going to show on the test

                    • Ok I see.. all the HIV specialist told me that 6 weeks are conclusive and with finger prick AB test its 8 weeks. I did a finger prick test today and it was negative 8 1/2 weeks post .. My doctor said its 200% conclusive and should move on.. tomorrow will go to another clinic and try to get a DNA RNA test as u mentioned.

                      I hope for both of us its just a counsidense that we have all this symtoms with the swxual exposure...

                              • Not other than that one person on Dr. Hooks forum who had been testing negative and then turned positive at 7 months.. so far that's it.. I'm thinking I'm going to be one when my DNA test comes back in a few days.. Every time I read a post of people in our situation they never come back and report and up date. But I think I will know for sure this week.. if I'm infected with hiv 1 the DNA test will let me know for sure. I really dont think you have it. You didnt get all the systoms I did. I have severe joint and muscle pain and twitching, my menstrual cycle is irregular, I had a bad sore throat, I lost over 30 pounds, extreme fatigue, my teeth decaying, body rash on my thighs for months, blurred vision, heat sensations throughout my body, nasal pressure, stiff neck and face, diarrhea, neuropathy in my feet and hands. My fingers and to would get stuck straight, extremely dry skin, skin was peeling on my feet looked like athletes feet, yeast in between my fingers, oral thrush, yeast infection, pressure behind my eye, warts on my fingers, chills and night sweats, swollen lymph nodes in neck and groin, if you name it I had it.. it was on thing after another.. the arthritis was crazy bad. Most have subsided just have the twitching, nasal pressure, neck and back pain which is hard to bare. The only thing I didnt get was a high fever.. maybe its coming soon
