HIV negative via Elisa and rna 20 years after any possible exposure but having symptoms of late stage HIV. Weight loss and fatigue and low testostero?

Leave google alone for now and ask an expert. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Why do you ask?: You'll be an adult in a few years and you need to familiarize yourself with HIV. If you have only achey muscles and are not obviously sick, you do not have late HIV / AIDS, period. This would be a great time to talk with an informed adult (maybe even Dad) about loving safely, and to get your first HIV screen from your personal physician -- something most young adults should get yearly. ...Read more
