Dear all,

1 year after protected sex , i went and got tested for HIV and other STDs & everything was negative.However, I have white ridges on both side of my tongue. I think it is the normal appearance of my tongue but not sure.Ridges (like white flesh) on the left side of tongue got swollen and got big but after a week/10 days became normal.

could this be hairy leukoplakia. I am really worried that i could have got a false negative HIV result. The test was at a my local GUM clinic in UK

THe past year has completely destroyed my life and i was recovering mentally now this thought has come up. I cannot bear the mental pain of another HIV test.

Your views on this would be really helpfull and Should I do another HIV test ?

Thanks

Hi Testman and welcome, I had to edit your post as we have people who are 13 on this site. No offense intended. I would take the HIV test again just to put your mind at ease. We have an HIV site here as well if you want to ask more questions on that topic. Do you feel anxiety is the major issue? We can help with that my friend!!!

Welcome to HealingWell.  If you feel you need to be tested again I would encourageyou to just get it done.  Face your fears up front and please don't let them run your life.

http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=6&m=1086751

If you click on this link you will go right to the information on the AIDS site.  They have the answers you may be looking for.  They are very straight forward.

As far as your medical issue concerns with your tongue, we do not and cannot dx as we are all like you, just folks with issues.  We can support and give our own personal advice.

Take care and if you want to share your problems with Anxiety and Panic please do.

Again a warm welcome,

Kitt

Tester,

I really don't know that anyone will have that info.  You might try to gogle it.

Get the second test is you want assurance and when it comes back negative...............move on with your life. Put this behind you.

Sincerely

Kitt
