Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

Second opinion] I am under PEP treatment for possible HIV
I am under PEP treatment for possible HIV exposure about 14 days ago. I am having blood work done to monitor my kidney/liver functions and I am concerned about a drop in my WBC as it may be an early indication of HIV infection. My baseline (3 days after possible exposure) was 7.3 total WBC and my new total WBC is slightly low at 4.44. My lymphocytes are at 23% (up from only 15% on baseline report) and my neutrophils are high at 66% (down from baseline at 79%). The total WBC count concerns me because I don't see many causes other than sever infections, namely leukemia and hiv, as causing a low count. The lab report shows normal range as 5-10.0. Is this concerning or possible indicator of hiv infection? It seems strange that it would drop that much in ten days to below normal levels. I am very stressed but I do get sleep, eat well and am working out. Thanks for your help. … read more
