June 4th, Dr. diagnosed me whith Shingles. After looking it up on the web I began to panic. 14 months prior I had unprotected vaginal sex with a woman that caused severe friction burn broke skin on my penis. (possible means of infection). Of course since I have been diagnosed with shingles I am constantly getting HIV symptoms. (to many to mention).
June 12th I went to a different DR. with my concerns, of course he told me I have no concern and said I should take the test to clear my anxiety.
June 27 I went back for results. Dr. told me that his report showed that my test was pending. When I asked what that meant he said they have to wait for enough samples to run a test. He then sid he would make a phone call. He came back and said I have nothing top worry about it was negative.
July 3rd. I went back to Dr. still with concerns of my symptoms. He still did not have a report from the lab with a negative report. It seems very strange to me that it would take almost a month to get a report back.
My question is at the time of testing I was on an anti viral medication i believe it is (famciclovir). And I was a week into shingles, could this cause my test to be inconclusive.
Should I get re tested, I would love to see a piece of paper that say's negative. I cant help thinking that it was inconclusive and the DR. is telling me it is negative just because he believes it would be.
