Blood Tests When Suffering From Fever And Painful Swallowing?
At that time I had a fever for 2 weeks and it was painful to swallow, after that I went to the puskesmas and was only given some medicine, and it didn’t work, and finally I went to the hospital for a blood test, when my blood was checked the result was 17,000 white blood cells. I asked when I checked the blood at the hospital, will the blood also be tested for HIV
Hello Sister Rani,
Fever for 2 weeks, accompanied by painful swallowing, with a white blood cell result of 17,000 can indicate an ongoing chronic infection in the body such as pulmonary tuberculosis, bronchitis (inflammation of the airways), bronchopneumonia (inflammation of the airways and lung cells). In addition to blood tests, other examinations related to accompanying symptoms such as coughs and colds with X-ray examinations, digestive disorders will be examined by Widal. When the blood is checked at the hospital, no HIV examination will be carried out, it is recommended that HIV examination through VCT (Voluntary counseling and testing) consultations, namely blood collection and HIV testing is carried out voluntarily and is known to the patient with an explanation of signs and symptoms, various types of examinations and a schedule for repeat examinations. transmission, risk of complications, benefits of examination and treatment. If you have had risky sexual intercourse or have injected drug/tatod syringes alternately, you could potentially get it. Consult for symptom improvement and evaluate the response to therapy in the body, consult a doctor regarding concerns about the disease in person or in a special HIV clinic at the hospital. Good luck
