Good evening Farhan, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also concerned about your condition. HIV infection, at the beginning of its appearance before 2000, is a disease whose verdict is almost always equated with a death sentence, because this disease weakens the immune system and makes sufferers susceptible to various diseases.
