Obviously we aren't talking about HIV here Gabriel but I would like to know what your doctor has told you please
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
1 HIV specialist said that 1 have to retest after 1 year
At list 9 HIV specialists said that it is not possible to have the virus after so many tests
Internist, ENT's, hematologists, dentists, dermatologists, infenctionists are just sending me from one to another.
Most HIV specialist are sending me to the psychiatrist.
I can go there as well but my problems are real: headechs, very dry skin around the mouth,bruising easilly, eachy skin...
I'm also a smoker, smoking around 20 cigares/day.

Do you know what your TSH level is?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No, I don't know
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
This is a test for tiroid.
I have made a few of those, all negative or below limit, so ok test
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

OK Gabriel. Once again I emphasize that you don't have HIV

I think you're hypothyroid and unless your TSH level is near 1.0, you need to be treated for that with thyroid hormone supplementation.

Talk to your doctor about this and, if necessary, see an endocrinologist

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok, i'll check this tomorrow, and I'll let you know.
Do you think it can be something else like a cancer, leukemia ...??
Thank you!
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

No, not cancer or leukemia Gabriel.
