Question: Do I have HIV …Aids…my blood results scare me.
Hi I wanted to ask a question that I have been having anxiety over. I’m 28/female and have swollen lymph nodes in my axilla and shotty lymph nodes in my groin. My cbc has come back normal and my sed rate is a 2. My ultrasound has come back normal with 1.9 lymph node being the largest. My hematologist thought this was still big for being normal and sent me for a ct scan next week and a lot of new blood work that I just received the results on. She ordered an hiv test which sort of scared me because I’ve only had sex with two
guys. My HIV test has come back NONREACT. I’ve been single for the past 2 years and haven’t had sex so there is no chance that I took it too soon after an exposure. The rest of my blood work is giving me anxiety though.

If you look at the last few ones my cd4 says 54. Is this test an actual count of the cd4. A count like that would mean full blown aids. Thank you for taking the time to read my question. I would appreciate all of the help
