HIV & CBC
1) Would a person infected with HIV have low white blood cells or high level?
2) Is this really something common?

***At about 6 month from know I could have been exposed to HIV after having sex with a CSW and I had been tested after dad at about 10week and my Dr. said the no more test was necessary sow I stop testing. Now 6 month after the encounter with the CSW I have a sever sinus and when to my Dr. he had me done CBC which came out to be low white blood cells.

I am really scared pleas I someone can help me

They would have a low level, but they can fluctuate or get lower for many different reasons.  I'm almost positive the sinus problem is related to something else, If you get a blood test now after 6 months and it comes up negative you have nothing to worry about

You can't diagnose HIV by CBC or WBC. My CBC and WBC have always been normal except for when I contracted an OI.

NO, not after a recent infection. WB cells are the fighters and when one has an infection of some sort you have an increase in WB cells.
