Yes: You should have had your HIV assay turn positive by this time. The other findings are either trivial orsomething to discuss with your physician but do not suggest HIV infection.

Thanks for writing a clarification to me. You've told me that you now have a lasting fever. If this is above 100, and not just a slight elevation into the 99's that might just be you, it needs to be evaluated by a physician. It's more likely to be a deep infection such as TB and this is what needs to be ruled out. If more love comes your way, please use barrier protection.
