Hiv and aids symptoms treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv and aids symptoms treatment


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 re not feeling well then go see the doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. But there is 100% no way you have AIDS because you were never exposed to HIV.
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 aids is oral thrush.
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 That's impossible, and in any case your symptoms don't suggest AIDS. Don't worry about it.
Avatar m tn For the simple reason that you guys are not even having an open mind to consider that I am having all the classic opportunistic infections (mind you I am using the word Infections, and not symptoms) of intial stage of AIDS. And then have a look at my cd4 counts. They co-relate. I have stated that I had UN-PROTECTED frottage with this wasted prostitute.

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 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 The lesions you describe are quite typical of this process and are in no way suggestive of HIV. The rashes of HIV are very different and irregular in appearance. Just for completeness sake, I will add that your condom protected intercourse and oral sex are not meaningful risks. You have nothing to worry about from this exposure. Take care.
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 Given my sordid history I am not asking about ARS symptoms but about what I fear may be HIV symptoms and that I may have lived through the non-symptomatic phase. And of course I will get tested, but I am hoping to grasp at some straw that what I am experiencing may not be HIV after all. I would like you to comment on my risk probability. I have seen the 1:1000 figure for a single act.
Avatar m tn Such symptoms do not suggest HIV. But even if you had typical symptoms, test results always overrule symptoms and exposure history, as long as enough time has passed for reliable testing -- and 6 weeks is sufficient. Your negative antibody test proves you were not infected. You'll have to look to other causes of your symptoms and you don't need any further testing.
Avatar m tn ve been in a panic over this since it started back up, but in Googling HIV and MS, I found several articles stating that MS-like symptoms have been shown in recent studies to appear in people who initially test HIV-negative, but then end up testing positive within 20-40 months afterward (!!!). So now I'm really petrified waiting for my results. I realize this isn't helpful, but I can really empathize with your concerns.
Avatar n tn I'm'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 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? Or does anyone with hiv always test positive for hiv antibodies even if they had developed an advanced stage of aids?
Avatar m tn i started using antibiotics and paracetamol for 10 days , throat was healed and also temperature is getting better . i got no rash no ulcers no swollen glands .. does this sound like primary aids symptoms and do i have to be tested ...
Avatar m tn serologic, clinical, and virologic results. AIDS. 1999 Jan 14;13(1):89-96. “This report describes the field and laboratory investigation of eight patients who had clinical evidence of HIV infection, but repeatedly negative HIV-1 antibody screening results in the course of their clinical care.

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.
