Hi doctor,

I had unprotected sex with a call girl ten months back. Then after three months, I got my HIV test done and the test was negative. Then again I got the HIV test after six months, the test was negative. Then after eight months, I got my HIV test done again, the test result was negative.

I did Elisa test, tri-dot test, Elfa test, finally western blot test. All test results were negative. I am getting some symptoms like body pain, body tiredness, bitter mouth, sore throat, tightness in neck.

So, I am fully scared. My question is that are these symptoms related to HIV or again I have to take another HIV test? Recently I did a WBC count test and it is 12000.

I have got Vitamin D test results as 16.6 ng/ml. Is Vitamin D deficiency related to my symptoms? I got Vitamin B12 test results as 188 pg/ml. Is this related to the beginning of HIV infection? I am totally confused.Please answer my questions.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

So whatever symptoms are there, it is due to vitamin deficiency. All tests are negative so it is clear that there is no HIV infection. So do not worry. You can consult a general physician. So he will give you written prescription, even I can but a long treatment is required. You will be all right after taking treatment.

Thank you doctor,

But I have read online that most of HIV positive people have a B12 vitamin deficiency. This is my thinking and also I am non-vegetarian eating chicken items, eggs, fish.

But how is it showing B12 deficiency? So I am scared of this. All tests were done before I drank plenty of alcohol. Can this affect my test results?

And what should I do next? Give me suggestions.

Injection Renerv (Thiamine hydrochloride) one ample IM after sensitivity test every alternate day for five injections followed by weekly, followed by one month for six months.

Then maintenance by oral tablet Cobadex Forte (folic acid, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B12, and many more) one at night for the long-term. You have Vitamin D3 deficiency also.

Take sachet Cholecalciferol 60,000 IU one per week for eight weeks followed by one sachet per month for six months and tablet Bio D3 (Calcitriol) one at night for a long-term basis intermittently.

As you take non-veg, you can drink plenty of milk and take milk products too. Butter, milk, and fresh curd are very beneficial.

Try to control, at least go for protected sex. As for last six months, you are in marvelous mental stress, one fault is equal to six months panic. No one should get such a punishment. So I think you will not do such a mistake. Be healthy, be happy. So now do not worry. All should be good now.

Hi doctor,

Thank you for the reply,

All tests are negative. Is there any chance for it to turn positive. Because I am reading online that HIV symptoms come up to 10 years.

I do not believe in prediction. It may be written. Ten years is a long time to predict the outcome. Stop thinking so much about this otherwise, you will convert into OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder).
