Brief Answer:
Both HIV1&2 ruled out conclusively.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome back.
Thanks once again for sending your query.

By a negative HIV test after 3 months ( It is expected to be an antibody test for HIV 1 &2), both HIV 1 &2 infections were ruled out and the result was a conclusive one.
Pain in muscles and joints are due to multi-variable reasons like rheumatoid arthritis, gout etc. If you consult a Rheumatologist or an Orthopedic surgeon, he/she will do appropriate investigations and fix the diagnosis. Then you will get relieved from your present illness with specific treatment. Get well soon.

The past 10 years I have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune disease, sjogrens, fibromalasia along with many infections mostly in the lungs. I feel horrible most of the time and the very worst upon waking in the morning so much so I dread going to sleep. I need help but don t know where to turn

My 14 yr. old is having extreme burping, we have been to the ER and got no results. She was previously diagnosed with a Lyles Heart murmur or musical murmur. She is 5 9 , 138 pounds, active with basketball and dance. She complains of lightheadedness, chest pain in upper left quadrant, left arm pain and she says she feels like her heart is racing at random times. She can t inhale or exhale deeply without burps, and they are constant and persistant. She has had a normal sonogram of the liver, kidneys, gall bladder. Do you have any suggestions? We are frustrated. In the ER she had low potassium and low BUN, she has also been diagnosed with chillblains on the fingers and toes, negative antigen test for Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis.

I read your Can mold cause rheumatoid arthritis and I have also read toxic mold systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis - Google Search and a blog about a 14-year-old girl with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, was found to have Stachybotrys growing in her bedroom walls... the reason I reiterate all this is because my son got so infected by Stachybotrys and other toxic molds in our apt that he developed systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and it affects his heart, lung and joints - so does this type of mold cause it or not?
