Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids symptoms treatment

aids

Avatar m tn HIV can be transmitted due to sharing needles, this is because the blood interact. Unfortunately, there is no cure for HIV (note that HIV isn't the same as AIDS) but treatment for this virus is really advanced. There are medications that permit people live a completely normal life with HIV without developing AIDS. I hope everything is ok, post your results. Personally, I think you didn't involve in high risk. This virus is very fragile and die easily at normal temperature.
Avatar f tn I don’t have any kind of Hiv risks but I have all the symptoms of aids,my tongue is white always ,I have white lines in my cheeks it started about 5 years ago and still is.
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 Can you Get HHV8 and not get HIV/AIDS?. Is it possible to skip HIV and get AIDS directly? Would HHV-8 be what caused all my symptoms (fever/neck ach/night sweats/nightmares/nausea/tiredness? If I was coinfected with HHV-8, HIV would it take longer than 8 weeks to show on elisa test? Please help need more answers. The Dermatolgist had a wait and see attitude with my questions.
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 m tn Today, HIV should not progress to AIDS with treatment. You have neither so it does not concern you.
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 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 what did you mean not anymore ? because i did find some info that was like 2010 and said that if you take the treatment right you wont get aids. how far before did you mean ? years ? months ?
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 ve been asked this before, but is it possible that in a person with Aids or a person with an advanced stage of Aids would stop making hiv antibodies? Do people with hiv show hiv antibodies for the rest of there life, even in the terminal stage of aids? And is it possible that someone could catch the hiv virus and in 3 years develop aids in an advanced stage if that person where unaware that they where hiv possitive and where not receiving treatment for hiv?
Avatar m tn but i would like to know if a teeth severe pain that responded to treatment with antibiotics .. or pain inside the ear can be among early HIV symptoms or not ?? thanks in advance ..
Avatar m tn Your test results prove your symptoms are not due to HIV, and the exposure you describe was no risk for HIV anyway. Work with your doctor to learn the cause of your symptoms.
Avatar f tn That's not sick. I mean sick as in hospitalized. Unable to function at all, period because death is imminent. Your symptoms are not full blown AIDs symptoms so you'll have to keep working with your doctor to figure out what's wrong. HIV tests are among the most reliable and sensitive tests on available on the market. Negative results at any time 3 months post exposure are more than conclusive, assuming that no other exposures have occurred after that time.
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 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 f tn Hello, Can u kindly explain me how many stages are involved in HIV positive? Can get AIDS as soon as being suffered for HIV?? Can HIV person be recovered like a normal person if taking a medicine regularly and obeying doc's suggestion properly??
Avatar m tn He mentioned a prophylaxis and antibiotics. I was worried about HIV and thought that this prophylaxis was for aids. He gave me a shot and a 10 day supply of doxicycline (antibiotic). After, I realized that this was for the prevention of an STD. I have searched the internet and have not found anything about STD prophylaxis. I am now concerned/wondering what Shot I was given. Has anybody heard of this type of treatment??
Avatar m tn HIV is not something to be diagnosed by symptoms alone. That being said, ARS symptoms typically develop 2-4 weeks post exposure.
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 m tn Candidiasis is common in AIDS patients, but it takes years to develop AIDS after becoming HIV positive and Candidiasis can happen to anyone who isn't HIV/AIDS infected as well. One of my friends had this happen to him once, and he was clean for STDs, it was just something weird that happened. But only your doctor can tell you what is wrong. I would advise you to relax for the time being. But do get tested, and abstain from sexual activities until your results are returned to you.
