This Dr. David

it sounds like you have been HIV negative

common viral infections, mononucleosis, epstein barr virus can cause tender glands and fatigue.

cd4/8 ratios can normally change over time and are not signs for HIV.

your HIV tests have all been negative.

have you been tested for mononucleosis viral infection?
