could HIV infection improve cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure ?
hello , about 10 weeks ago I had a risk for HIV infection , and 2 weeks ago (8 weeks after infection) I found some symtoms such as loosing the weight , rashes in the moth mouth , sore troth and " aseptic meningitis " with a bad Headache , So I went to a hospital for 6 days and got some test , the pressure of  cerebrospinal fluid was high and there was som wbc (white blood cells ) in the (CSF) , but hsv and HIV ag/ab both were negative ( at 60 days after infection ) , and the doctors all were confused , and told me I have behcat syndrome !!! my questions is that :
1-could I be infected by HIV and it affected on my CSF and caused aseptic meningitis but my HIV ab/ag test back negative 8 weeks after infection ?
2-could anxiety cause aseptic meningitis ?
3-how many time after incident is a good time for conclusive result ?

8 weeks HIV ag/ab negative is a good news.It is highly unlikely to get changed at 90 days after infection.However you require to test again at 84/90 day i.e 12/13 weeks for conclusive results.

transmission REQUIRES penetration of an unprotected penis inside a vagina / anus.  nothing you've described placed you at risk for contracting hiv.

If you didn't have a risk then you have no reason for testing.

In your case since you had NO RISK it's already conclusive so you can stop worrying and move along!
