Hey, i am sorry that you have went through so much testing. i understand your results and I will try best to exam them.
Q: Do you have any symptoms ????
Okay Lab results:
Your Elisa seems to be Positive, but WB Is negative. In other words you are HIV negative.
Are you male or female ? if you female are you pregnant ? Active HHV 6 or 8 or CMV ?
Your May 25, 07 Elisa is + and WB is neg
Your Aug Elisa is + and WB is neg again. 2 or more band has to be extreme positive in order for WB to be positive.
Lot of things can cause false + but two in a same row, no big deal.
Now, your Cd 4 don't seem to be too promising, why did your Cd 4 drop to 700, I have no answer, usually for healthy person that are between 600 - 1500.
So in other words, your immune system is doing fine.
CD 4 % is excellent shap.
And your Cd 4 / Cd 8 ratio is very good 1.65
From what I have read and what I have done research on. I have notice that as soon as you seroconvert, your body drops Cd 4 less than 500 < and than goes back up to say maybe 600 or whatever, but never to 1500 or so.
In addition, the ratio of Cd 4 / Cd 8 will drop below < 1.0
In other words, they will be inverted, in ur case is not such a case.
CD 4 % is the most important thing in noticing how well ur immune system is doing.
Well ur immune system is doing great.
I do not think you have HIV.
Check your Cd 4 / Cd 8 ratio 3 months from now.
If everything is good u are in good shape.
I just thing that you have a protien that binds to HIV E-lisa
CMV, HHV 6, CFIDS, Mycoplasma, anything can cause it.

I hope this helps, let me know what u learn from this.
Ask your ID to check for,
Coksaxi (sp?) virus, CMV, HHV 6, Mycoplsama, EBV, Gulf Syndrom, TB .
Any other symptoms ?
Regarding HIV, looks you're negative!
Your doctor won't tell you your'e negative without been sure.
If he had any doubt he would have asked for a DNA PCR or viral load (PCR RNA).
Your symptoms look like depression, timing and description of your symptoms confirm that.
Get your life back.
HLA antibodies (to Class I and II leukocyte antigens)(7, 46, 63, 48, 10, 13, 49, 43, 53) whats this
You are absolutely do not have HIV, end of story. You have an unrelated antibody cross-reacting with gp41, causing all the tests to go off. It happens, nothing to worry about at all.
Thanks guys for lots of good info. I am starting to feel better. Ben, the list helps a lot. That’s lots of things to trigger false positive. I was a very healthy 27 year old male before taking the test.
"Q: Do you have any symptoms???? "
Yes. Started May 25 (day I gave blood first time). Had fever, cough, weakness, sore throat. My fiancé had same sickness. Hers went away in 2 weeks, but I still have a slightly sore throat for the last 4 months. Also, I feel sleepier throughout the day than before I tested, and I experience a bit of weakness.
"If he had any doubt he would have asked for a DNA PCR or viral load (PCR RNA). "
I did have PCR RNA and bDNA tests done during my second visit - they both came back negative
I have another visit coming up Tuesday. I am going to ask for the following tests:
Also IDC doctor diagnosed me with "Medical student syndrome"
I would say you can be inmunosuppressed because of depresion, stress.
Be careful with so much tests, they are a source of stress and most docs. will tell you not to do them.
Don't look in hiv or other illnes, look in your mind and take care of it.
