Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I had tested with five different manufacturers of HIV rapid kits at home after three to four sexual exposures. Is this test conclusive, accurate, and reliable? Do I need to test more? Am I negative for HIV 100 %? Present symptoms include pain in the body, weakness, palpitations, and continued burning sensation in different body parts shifted from one place to another. I have got checked vitamin B12 and vitamin D3. Both are normal. I am not suffering from diabetes. Why am I having these neuropathy-like symptoms?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern.

No need to worry about HIV. There is no need for further testing. All these symptoms are due to stress and anxiety.

I hope this information will help you.


Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
