It is true that people with HIV
get shingles, but mostly only when they have advanced AIDS
. More important, the vast majority of people with shingles do not have HIV.
You have no choice but to have an HIV test. Just do it. It is the only way you're going to start to get beyond your fear of it. I will have no other comments on this thread unless and until you return to report your HIV test result. It will be negatove.
