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 m tn That's impossible, and in any case your symptoms don't suggest AIDS. Don't worry about it.
Avatar n tn ll list a set of ARS symptoms and then symptoms of further HIV which also include similar things like weight loss, diarhea, headaches, muscle aches. But this time, these symptoms aren't because of ARS because they've already been infected for some time --but how long? Someone who went through ARS, could they start getting the further HIV symptoms like 6 months later (is tht too early) a year, 2?
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.
Avatar n tn 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 m tn I have read in this forum people with swollen lymph nodes and high fever and gastro problems rashes and then they test –ve my question is why do they get these symptoms is it just anxiety or what?
Avatar m tn My throat is sensitive to sweets and lately ive been chocolates and ice cream and upon reading this comments and signs, ive been anxious. And i have anxiety attack. The pain of my girlfrien was only that night and the following day. No more pain.
Avatar n tn I'm sorry...it's just now that I've seen it's an STD forum and not about HIV/AIDS. But still...can you answer me please? Is it maybe some other STD than HIV? Thank you.
Avatar n tn I have seen a doctor who informed me that it could be guilt and stress combined and recommended that I need not to have a blood test however they are organizing one to play down my fears. I have checked myself for any other signs and symptoms like swollen lymph nodes on my neck, armpits and groin and any blemishes but these are normal and there is nothing else that seems out of the ordinary. I am now eaten normally except for the fact I am drinking over 1.
Avatar m tn But you still can be sure you were not infected, because of the condom and because it is unlikely your partner had HIV, and your symptoms do not sound like those of an HIV infefection. But if you want even greater certainty, you could have another HIV test now. HIV/AIDS cure: At present, HIV treatment is so effective that most infected persons who have access to excellent health care can expect to live normal life spans.
Avatar n tn You should not tell people to not get tested for HIV. Imagine he took your advice and was infected with HIV and then infected other people. See the domino effect. Yes, most likely he is not positive but I advise you to not tell people to not get tested.
Avatar n tn You don't diagnose HIV by symptoms. HIV has no specific symptoms. Your HIV test will be conclusive at 3 months post exposure.
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 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 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 n tn In the past few years I've been susceptible to some respiratory symptoms. They usually start with heavy sneezing, then followed by a mild fever, and sometimes my nose will be running. This will last maybe 5 days, and I think on average I've had this once or twice a year. There was also one case of where I thought was bronchitis; I had some trouble breathing, and they did an x-ray and said they didn't really see anything. They gave me antibiotics anyway.
Avatar m tn This is a forum for individuals who are HIV positive or have AIDS to connect and support each other. Take your questions to the HIV Prevention Forum.
Avatar n tn well i just looked at my arm and i have a pimple that looks like a ant bite on my forerm and i had the same thing on my stomach. i pulled the head off and it looked like a regular pimple. and i lost 2 pounds in about 3 mnths should i be worried!
Avatar m tn 5 F), muscle soar, and profound fatigue). Could the test be wrong and I have AIDS and transmitted it to my wife? What are the symptoms of the Acute HIV phase? I don't know if I should run another test but I'm desperate, what do you think? Please help.
Avatar n tn Is it possible to have persistent HIV symptoms a few months after exposure? Say like 3-4 months?
