You should describe your oral & physical signs & symptoms, also tell us, what did your doctor say after examining your tongue & seeing your blood & other reports. Well don't panic about hiv/253657?iL=true" >AIDS. If its the only disorder you are suffering from. As in AIDS, one suffer from generalized symptoms, as he/she steps into the 2nd stage/phase of the disease. First phase is asymptomatic. Second shows many hallmark signs & symptoms of HIV infection. During this phase the patient consults a doctor & found HIV positive on complete clinical & pathological examinations. Third phase is full blown disease which consists of several complications in the body and it is called AIDS, acquired immuno-deficiency syndrome. 2 different types of tests can confirm false +ve & false -ve HIV reports. I suggest first you get yourself tested for HIV again. Western blot test is the confirmatory test for HIV. I hope you don't have it. May god bless you & remove all your worries.

Tell me more about when you have tested for HIV and your last sexual contact. Any family history of diabetes? Whether it is a oral thrush or Geographical tongue? Any symptoms like frequent fever, weight loss? Any burning/change in sensation for spicy foods?
