Thanks for any info.
The only reason for false negative results is if people test too early. Given that you appear to be testing at 3 months, this is not an issue for you.
There are many medical conditions that could and I stress the word could
cause a false positive. As for your condition you should certainly mention it to the medical staff prior to your test and ask for their advice. It is unlikely to interfere with the result but any medical condition must be mentioned before any HIV test.
