Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids symptoms signs

aids

Avatar m tn I have read many conflicting things on the internet about the asymptomatic time period of hiv, I have read the average amount of years before you develop AIDS without treatment is 10 years. What is the average amount of time before most people know they have hiv (develop symptoms that alert them) and does this differ by age at time of infection. Do people in their 20's differ from those in their 40's 50's and even 60's?
Avatar f tn I never tested because I got reassurance from ppl and was afraid due to anxiety over this illness anyway. Now, in November 2014 I am having signs of AIDS. I have had an incredibly serious yeast infection (not diagnosed) (urgent care could not diagnose me at all or tell me what was wrong). However my symptoms are nausea, not eating three days, white tongue, and also vaginal yeast. It is clear it is this. I also took a candida medication and my symptoms are being relieved somewhat.
12742885 tn?1427016324 I went to my doctor the next day, and rang them up at the morning and told them i needed and HIV test. I forgot all the symptoms why i was about to present to them, which my Fiance knew i was going to present to them, and there she might new that i was about to get the message that i was HIV positive anyways so she told me the day before i was about to go to the doctor ( this was mindset). The doctor told me i was HIV negative i was happy and told her i was lucky.
Avatar n tn How long does it usually take for OHL symptoms to arise after being infected with HIV? Is it at all possible to exhibit signs of OHL only 3 months or less after infection with HIV? If yes, then is it possible to exhibit signs of OHL and test negative for HIV and the same time, but still be HIV+? My negative results give me confidence I am ok, but the fact that the ridges haven't went away leave me thinking I may still have HIV.
Avatar n tn And the thing that freaks me out the most is that i have a lot of symptoms that could be related to hiv/aids. I have low wbc count. I also a high level of protein in my blood too. I feel like i am at a lost. Every doctor ive been to tells me not to worry, but how am i not suppose to when i have all these signs in my blood work pointing to hiv?
Avatar m tn I figure that it could be an infection. HIV cannot cause it, AIDS can. all hiv does is to destroy the immune system. It appears that there's a worldwide pandemic of Lyme disease and who knows what else. I guess that to find out what it is they need to do spinal tap on you to search for bacteria in your cerebro-spinal fluid. you need to see a Neurologist or someone who understands the problem.
Avatar n tn HIV can be "dormant" in the body for many years, which only means it is not producing any clinical signs or symptoms of illness. However, even if it is clinically "dormant" it is NOT dormant in terms of activity. Even without symptoms, HIV can be reproducing itself by millions of new copies every day. The virus can be clinically silent, but it is still detectable by an HIV antibody test. As malbat has wisely advised you, get tested now.
Avatar m tn You had both PROTECTED vaginal and oral sex. NO RISK FOR HIV OR STD's NO NEED TO TEST You can NOT contract HIV from an ingrown hair. And one does not contract "AIDS." You can acquire "HIV," which, if left untreated, will eventually become full blown AIDS. Symptoms are NEVER used to diagnose HIV and since you never had a risk, your symptoms are either being triggered by your anxiety or they are indicative of a completely unrelated underlying issue.
Avatar n tn Or in this situation (razor blade cut after 2-3 minutes, 64 days negative hiv test, only shingles after 4 years without other signs of AIDS). I only want to learn how long hiv lives out of body and how much reliable my hiv test 64 days after the event . And information about shingles/AIDS relation.
Avatar m tn or you really have fever, you need to seek a doctor for that.for me, symptoms are useless because some of people living with HIV dont develop ARS symptoms before.If you want to know your status just take the test. Good luck!

Avatar n tn you have been advised of your risk. if you lost the condom during sex...it was a brief unprotected exposure. if it came off during withdrawal (which you would have known since it more than likely would have been hanging out of her vagina)...then you were protected during intercourse. continuing to dwell on what you perceive to be "signs and symptoms" of hiv...does NotHING but add fuel to the fire of your anxiety. the ONLY way to know if you have hiv is by testing.
Avatar m tn The other is can a rash unaccompanied by other symptoms be a sign of HIV, no fever , flu like symptoms, or other signs. I did have a slight loss of appetite and stiff shoulders (most likely from worry)? I did something stupid and exposed my self to a person of unknown status. I am now very concerned about being infected. I will be taking a test when I get back to the US. At that time it will be 7 weeks since the incident.
Avatar n tn Which world do you live in? you do not get "AIDS" like that; It is HIV you are talking about. And there are no doctors on this forum.
Avatar f tn um I was with my bf for like a year anyways he left me about a month ago he just left didnt tell me he was leaving I think he may have hiv or aids and has infected me ive been feeling sick for a while off and on but I have not been tested in about a year anyways ive got this rly bad cough and sometimes I feel like its hard to breathe it been like tht for a couple weeks now I dont have insurance and ive been too much of a coward to go to the hospital because im by myself I cnt tell my family...
Avatar n tn t have a risk of contracting HIV and your symptoms have nothing to do with HIV. If you are concerned about your symptoms see your doctor.
Avatar m tn You never had an exposure. See your doctor for your symptoms. You don't have an HIV concern.
Avatar n tn Ill keep praying im fine and the doctor is ordering an RNA for me to help the stress go away and ill just wait until 6 months if the RNA is Negative. I know whats going on with my hands are signs of late late HIV infection or AIDS, not ARS so my hands are not really worrying me too much cause it could be related to another nasty STD Syhphillis, herpes or Hep-c or trauma from the horrible stress i have been having.
Avatar m tn A WB is a confirmatory test, when a pt tests positive on another HIV test, a WB is done to rule out/in infection. You need to seek professional help, it's simply not rational to still be concerned about HIV when there's overwhelming proof you don't have it. There's nothing more we can say to you...you only had ONE risk, and you tested negative numerous times WELL beyond the window period which means you don't have HIV. AIDS is an advancement of HIV....
Avatar n tn Some people with advanced HIV/AIDS suffer from frequent or severe HSV infections, either oral or genital. But that is never the only symptom; such people are generally very sick from advanced AIDS. Of all people with oral cold sores, probably 1 in a million has HIV. Forget it. "I am showing signs of OCD?" Yup. Take care of that OCD.
