Fourth generation cannot be wrong.

Another cause for your symptoms need to be investigated.

A lymph node biopsy may be performed.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

I have read that at late stage you loose antibodies and may give possible negative results
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Your wife would have been positive in 14 years.

Fourth generation look for p24 too which is virus itself.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Could you please reply to my last question
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 6 months ago

None of these symptoms indicate late stage HIV. These are common for many diseases like pinched nerves in neck and back, anxiety, acid reflux, hormonal issues, vitamin B12 deficiency etc.

What about dark urine mouth ulcers and burning genitals and groin and heat sensation through body
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Basically you are saying hiv is not my problem
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 6 months ago

HIV is diagnosed by HIV test.

Test is negative. It rules out HIV.

Now your symptoms need thorough investigations like (to ascertain the cause);

Electromyography

Nerve conduction velocity study.

Color doppler study of groin, pelvis, abdomen.

MRI of spine.

Diseases cannot be diagnosed just by symptoms. They need investigative confirmation.
