I am not sure if this is the right place for my issue, so maybe someone can tell me if there's a more appropriate forum for this.
My problem started about 1 year ago. I have always been a little afraid of hiv since it's uncurable, but 1 year ago it turned into an obsession.
I went to a saloon for shaving and i got big cut on my neck, i am not sure if the barber used a new razor blade or not and my worry of HIV infection started.
Later on after 13 days after that incident i have gone for HIV PCR RNA test, CBP, VRDL and Hepatitis B in a private hospitals (when sample is collected i made the sample collector to wear new gloves) all came back negative and my lymphocyte count was 29% (Total WBC-7100). But my worrying didn't gone for two months and later on i went to ICTC center (a place where testing and counselling is given for people on HIV) and the Councillor explained everything and when i heard about all the thing she explained me, i got relief from my tensions. Later on she counselled in a way that i had taken the test at the center. I asked her to wear new gloves but she told the HIV infection is not that easily transmitted and collected blood by wearing used gloves and before she inject the syringe into me for collecting blood i saw her touching at the other end of needle with the fingers of the hand. After that incident my worrying became more and all my symptoms started. I got gastric problem and loose motions and i feel some foreign object is there in my throat. Then my parents took me to a psychologist, i explained him everything he said this is a symptom of globus sensation and given me some anti-depression capsules but my symptoms have not stopped and i also had pain near lower part of my jaws. After four and half month i took western blot test, all the things came negative except serum control which came back as positive (but my lymphocyte count is 45% (Total WBC-5700)) and later on after five and half months i took tridot test which is also came back as negative and at 8 months 25 days a ELISA immunology and the i received the value as 0.90.
The reason behind my worry is my physical symptoms, those were horrible, as you advised i have started taking treatment regarding those symptoms but the physical pain is still there. I have severe pain near my groins and a soar throat and i have digestion problem.
I am sure that the sample collector had used previously used gloves while collecting the sample for the test, i asked her to use new gloves but she turned down my request and taken out the blood.
It is now exactly nine months from that incident. I have under gone several test after that
My questions to you are:
Is the tridot test after 5 1/2 months and western Blot after 4 1/2 months are accurate for diagnosing HIV?
There is an increase in my lymphocyte count form 29% to 45%, I have no fever or other infection at that time (it is the thing that is most worrying me as i have read in one article that lymphocyte count will increase in the early stage of HIV infection) is it true?
And is there any test which is better than western blot and do you think i need any further testing is needed?
With the Elisa test i have taken i have a new worry, the value i got is 0.90 which is just on the border. Is it definitely conclusive and negative?
How much time (Seconds/Minutes) can HIV virus be alive in human blood outside the human body?
If i had shared an syringe with a person with HIV and got tested negative after three months, can it be taken as conclusive?
Is there any chance i will be showing as positive in future?
As i told, my family is planning to get me married now, but i am thinking of to wait for another 5 to 6 years and then tested for HIV and to married if my report was still negative, is there any chance of my report to change after, 5 years?
Can i donate blood, now?
Can you suggest me the best test in identify the HIV Virus, instead of antibody in India?
Is there any test that is 100% accurate in finding the HIV Virus?
Really appreciate your help.
Awaiting your response.
