Re: Blood Test When Ill - Do they check for?
I think a basic blood test called a complete blood count would show the lowered immune system that comes with AIDS but probably wouldn't show an early HIV infection. The only way to know is to get an HIV test.
I'm guessing your docs would have told you if they tested you for HIV, you can request copies of your past blood tests from your docs office and double check for yourself.
