Please don't yell at me to go get tested right away, I will do it soon, just trying to understand a few things going on with my body. I've been tested negative in Apr and Sep of last year, and since then only had 1 potentially risky situation with a condom failure diring vaginal intercorse with a CSW in Nov of last year.
For 2 months now I've been having constant gurgling in my stomach, soft stools and yellowish watery diarrhea in the morning and sometimes during the day. Went to a gastroenterology specialist, he ran stool tests and CBC. Nothing was abnormal found in the stool test, and blood counts appear to be normal. Can anyone tell me if CD4 cell count is done during a normal CBC test, and where can I find it? The only thing that looks somewhat recognizable is:
TSH/FREE T4 IF TSH ABNORM (TSH, 3RD GEN):
2.09 [0.40-4.00] uIU/ML
CBC WHITE CELL COUNT:
9.5 [3.5-10.5] K/UL
LYMPHOCYTES: 21% [15-50]
ABSOLUTE LYMPHOCYTES: 2.1 [1.0-4.0] K/UL
Can HIV by itself cause chronic diarrhea without having any other parasites in my gut? I have read that HIV attacks the gut and chronic diarrhea is one of the first signs of HIV infection, so I'm scared to the stage where my hands are shaking when I'm typing this :(
Thank you all!
