I had a possible high-risk exposure four months back, and I am worried about HIV infection. I got a fourth generation PCR, PCR for HIV2, and viral load, which were all normal. I still have symptoms like diarrhea and joint pain. Just last week I did a CD4 panel, and this is the results, the absolute CD4 helper is 937, percentage CD4 is positive, the absolute CD8 suppressor is 886, percentage CD8 is positive, lymphocytes is 32.8, CD4/CD8 ratio is 1.06, WBC is 12.2, and neutrophils absolute is 8.9. My concern is the CD4/CD8 ratio, I read that a number below 1 might be HIV, and I am so close to 1. Also, my WBC and neutrophils are high. Do you know what it means?
