Hello sir,i had a high risk exposure 3 years ago(nov 2013) and after 1.6 year(may 2015) after exposure got tested with TRIDOT(3 rd generation) and the result came back non reactive and again due to some doubt i got tested again twice in july 2016 and march 2017 and the test used was 4 rth generation ag/ab test and both the results came back non reactive.my question to you sir is how accurate are these tests and do i need any further testing or these test results suffice? Also does pollen allergies,pcos,hypothyroidism and its medications like metformin,synthroid,provera,clomid,OCPs and antihistamines-can they affect my test results ? can vaccinations like flu shots and hepatitis vaccinations alter my test results? i got tested for STDs(syphillis,herpes,chlamidea and gonnerhea) all the results came back non reactive.does this rule out any possibility of having hiv?

Dear sir/Madam, I am Muhammad Jawad, 26 years (male). I face problem in my chest (Chest congestion). I have visited several doctors. Some recommended Levofloxacin 500 mg full dose some prescribed Moxifloxacin but in vain. One doctor recommended Monteleukast sodium 10 mg once daily. I feel better when I take this drug but feel chest congestion again when give up this drug. Normally my congestion starts when I am in rest position. My congestion is severe in places with high number of pollen. Kindly let me know what my problem is. Is it pollen allergy or something else? And one more thing, I often suffer from chest infection as well. I am smoker but I have reduced smoking. I don’t smoke more than 3 cigarettes per day. Kindly let me know my disease and how to cope with this problem. Thanks very much.
