I have two large white spots on my tonsils that will not go away even after three rounds of antibiotics and my throat is constantly sore which extends into my neck. I have whole body soreness and an overall feeling of weakness and nausea. I had shingles about three months ago and my wife had them as well. I have tested negative for HIV up to 33 weeks after any possible risk incident. Is it possible to have HIV from years ago but test negative because my immune system has become too run down? I want to trust the HIV test but I am just getting sicker and weaker with time. Please, any advise is appreciated.

Why HIV? It could be many things.If you have tested negative for HIV on several occasions then you need to shift your focus to another problem.If you only focus on HIV you may miss the real problem.

I understand that and have been looking at other avenues through my doctor but the shingles, and white spots in mouth, sore throat are all classic HIV related symptoms. I just want to know when if ever can you trust the test results in light of obvious physical symptoms?
