1747881 tn?1546179478 Stephen Stein, a dentist who practiced oral surgery in Denver and Highlands Ranch, is advised to get tested for HIV and hepatitis. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment made the recommendation today.

Avatar m tn As for your recent oral sex exposure, I really don't see a high priority for HIV testing -- but if you would like the additional reassurance of an expected negative result, you can be reliably tested any time more than 4-6 weeks after the exposure, depending on which test (or comination of tests) are done. I'll be happy to comment further if you would like to post either a current or future HIV test result. In the meantime, I hope this has been helpful.
Avatar f tn I attributed the presence of blood to friction and lack of enough natural lubrication We are both African Americans, in Denver CO. I am 31, he is 45. He suffers from MS and is on a weekly injection, along with a brain lesion that is drained once a month. He seems to go to the doctor pretty regularly. The only thing I have noticed is a little irritation when I try to urinate, a mellow burning sensation and a small amount of itching. There is no odd smell or discharge.
Avatar f tn We both live in Denver, CO. I am a white married female, and he Latino. He is with his ex wife after being divorced once already. They have 2 children. We were both intoxicated and had sex without a condom but he pulled out prior to ejaculation. I have no reason to believe he has sex with men, or uses intraveneous drugs, but I am somewhat paranoid regardless of what might have occurred.

Avatar m tn Thus, the chance you caught HIV is no higher than 1 in a million, probably a lot less than that. That's far too low to warrant HIV PCR testing. Had you visited a health professional, s/he would have advised you to save your money on that sort of test. However, since you did it, the result confirms you were not infected. As you leanred in your research, almost everybody with a new HIV infection has a positive PCR test by 10-12 days.
Avatar m tn Can anyone advise me on pursuing the Western Blot for HSV in Denver, CO? The problem I'm having is that I'm on a limited budget and though I have health insurance it's a high-deductible which I'm far from meeting. I've found an infectious disease consultant eager to see me, but I believe that seeing her is like adding an expensive and unnecessary "middle-man" to the process. I called an Urgent Care to see if they could help, but they require a directive from a doctor.
Avatar f tn They turned out negative on further testing for HIV-1 genes, indicating that they did not have the HIV-1 virus. It turns out that the Mycoplasma infection that they had contained a portion of one of the HIV-1 genes, the env gene, which encodes a part of the gp120 viral spike glycoprotein. Most HIV-1 antibodies turn out to be against this part of the HIV-1 protein coat—thus resulting in a false-positive test result.

254544 tn?1310779332 Perhaps because I can only guess where I contracted hcv (from tools at work) and know that it wasn't from a transfusion or IVDU, I want everybody to ask their doctor for a test so they don't go undiagnosed for decades as I did. Testing for hcv should be as routine a part of an annual checkup as testing for blood sugar. Anybody can get it. Therefore, why the stigma?

Avatar n tn Then I went back to him after already dumping over $200 in co-pays and medication and he said I have a sinus infection. I just finished the antibiotics and I still feel the same as I did when I first went to him in July. He had me on amoxicillin plus Astelin. I have tried Nasacort, Zyrtec, Claritin, Alavert, etc.... no relief. I am a computer programmer and I can't function like this anymore. Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I have not been able to get much info on the net except from the Drug Co. They have one slot open and I need to be there tomorrow for my bloodwork and EKG. Is there anyone on Med Help that is in this trial or anyone with any info that would help me make this decision. I was so dis-hearted when I could not stay in the Teleprevir study. It is Phase 3, either 12 or 24 weeks and either with or w/o Riba. It starts next week. Thanks for any info.
Avatar n tn The doc was testing me for the flu, in which I knew I didn't have! And then, he calls to tell me he's prescribing an antibiotic because he thinks I have a virus... I refused the antibiotic, searched for a new doctor for future reference and laughed at them.. they thought my selenium poisoning was insane, and they were prescribing a freakin zpac for a VIRUS??? DOCTORS need to back off the computer and start thinking with what they know!
Avatar m tn I'm not as troubled by the floater anymore and more constantly busy with testing the new visual effect to see if it gets worse. Though this may sound strange there is a reason for my fear: glaucoma runs in the family and thus I'm afraid that I might get that and so I'm always very aware of any visual defects or "unexplainable" effects. I'm going to see my ophthalmologist next Friday and will report what she said if you would like that.
1647691 tn?1363727302 I told her that the internet disagrees as they dont have a controlling body for testing. She didn't like me much. I love the world wide web hehe haven't touched the green teas. Have to say don't like them. Feeling sick about tomorrows appointment. The sleepless nights still continue after that 2ww.
Avatar n tn coronary, pulmonary or spontaneous bleeding and clotting can occur at any time and hasten death Additionally, it is not uncommon for liver failure patients to wax and wane in terms of their mentation, confusion and overall state. Paradoxically, it's a laxative (lactulose) which can improve their mentation by converting and clearing amonium from the system - which is a function of a healthy liver So it's a roller coaster I'm afraid.
