I feel that I need to see an hiv specialist doctor because of all the symptoms that no one has been able to help with. But because I have tested negative repeatedly with rapid antibody fingerprick tests, I cannot get referred. So I am unable to get any treatment at all.

Hello while the testing you have had indicates that you are not HIV positive and this is great news, and this means that seeing an HIV specialist would not be a need for you. You may want to consider seeing your doctor and requesting a complete physical medical check-up. Symptoms are not an indication of HIV infection and your health related ailments may be related to a host of other health issues. Stress and anxiety can often lead to overall health problems.

The good news in this situation is that you are not living with HIV and this is something you can begin to move past. The science of HIV testing is highly accurate and reliable and a Rapid Point of care HIV test is as sound as any standard HIV test. testing for HIV requires one test at 12 weeks, post risk exposure for conclusive results.

We wish you well and are hopeful that you will find the reason for your current health problems.

Yours respectfully,
David.
