I have a chronic disease of the bone for over 10years and was diagnosized HIV+ in the past 5 years. I was a virgin and of low risk before my HIV test. I strongly still believe that my chronic disease might be interfering with the HIV test. The antibodies that my test (Western Blot) detected are very likely to be my chronic disease antibodies.

A good prove is that I have remained no progressive since my test for over 5 year
The viral load is still the same up till now
I am very healthy and the doctor says I have good antibodies
I don’t have any symptoms and have never been sick besides the chronic bone problem that occur once in a while.

Is there are more conventional testing I could go for HIV testing besides the obvious ones that detects the antibodies?

The antibodies detector (Western blot ) I was administered during the test might be seeing the antibodies of these chronic illness and complications.

Is there a more conventional testing methodology to prove that I am indeed HIV+ besides the ones that detect antibodies to HIV? Please recommend one.
