Hiv positive early symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv positive early symptoms


Avatar n tn I have read that in any case the per encounter risk of female to make transmission is low even from an HIV positive female to an HIV negative male. Is that true? In that case, the risk with condom must be even much lower..?
Avatar m tn I have to wait about 3 months for a blood test, but the wait is just killing me. I've been reading a lot on the early symptoms of HIV and I seem to have a lot of them, but I haven't had any night sweats, swollen lymph nodes, or rashes on my hands and feet, and I would think an HIV rash wouldn't appear only during a shower, but I honestly don't know.
Avatar f tn yesterday i saw white patches or nodules on my swollen tonsils (it never happens before) and it is a early symptom of HIV. i don't have any symptoms like fever,tired feeling,Swollen lymph nodes,Joint and muscle aches,rash. (i saw from that site ) i hope it is not cause of HIV but if it is then what will show 4.5 week HIV test result ? will it be positive ? if the symptoms are showing it that mean body already produce enough antibody ?
Avatar n tn No these arent symptoms fo HIV infection at all and test at three month is reliable but one monhyt -ve test is good indication of HIV -ve after three months as well.
936016 tn?1332769204 Many of the questions we answer on this Forum and also the Freedomhealth Sexual Health Forum relate to anxiety about HIV and also possible early HIV symptoms. One of the main problems in relying on HIV symtoms themselves is that they are notoriously vague and almost all the symptoms may in fact be symptoms of a different disease. The best method always of diagnosing HIV is to have a modern HIV test.
Avatar n tn As I said during your last exchange with me, your exposure was no risk for HIV. The symptoms you describe are not suggestive of HIV. It appears that you are looking on the internet and trying to match your symptoms, which are most likely all due to anxiety, to symptoms of HIV infection. This is an error since there are no symptoms which are highly specific for HIV and as a result you can find reports of just about anything being associated with HIV.
Avatar n tn Nobody has ever taken that long to test positive to HIV and you won't be the first. I have no idea why your doctor wants you to test again, likely for your own piece of mind.
Avatar n tn I'm not asking for a positive diagnosis, only if these symptoms are those of an acute HIV infection. I stated that I knew testing was the only real way to know.
Avatar m tn I have also been very stressed out about the idea of being HIV positive. What are the likely chances that these symptoms (and the tingling sensation in my feet) are from the incident i.e. also phlegm in my throat, fatigue, etc.
Avatar n tn Were new needles used? Actually, early HIV symptoms are vague, and your symptoms could be from many other things. And not to freak you out more, but if clean needles weren't used, you should also test for hep b and hep c. If you used clean needles, then you have nothing to worry about, ok?
Avatar m tn Are these the symptoms of HIV? 2. Isnt a 12 day P24 antigen teto st a realiable indicator of HIV? 3. can oral candidiasis occur as early as day 5 after possible exposure to hiv? 4. What are the chances of 26 day negative elisa result to turn positive?
Avatar n tn if you have early symptomatic HIV, would you test positive in an HIV antibody test definitely?
Avatar n tn As for your symptoms, they are early for the ARS. They are likely to be due to something else, not HIV. In terms of what to do, getting a blood test 6-8 weeks from exposure is a good idea but you can have an answer to your concerns even earlier if you can get your partner to go get an HIV test next week. If he doesn't have HIV, he cannot give it to you.
Avatar m tn you never had an exposure. hiv is transmitted through... unprotected vaginal / anal intercourse sharing iv drug works mother to child hiv is not transmitted through oral sex. here are some quotes from the hiv specialists here at medhelp: There is no debate (among experts) about the HIV risks associated with oral sex. The risk is so low that almost nobody who cares for HIV infected patients has ever had a patient believed to have been infected that way.
Avatar m tn lastly i noticed my tongue was kinda white, not at all patchy jus kinda evenly on the whole thing but i drink heavily each weekend an smoke and i dont know how long ive had that, i didnt put any of this together until i started reading early hiv symptoms and now im totally freaking out i also tested positive for hsv-1 but that was it..
Avatar m tn well during the early stage of HIV 70% will develop some early symptoms, usually two to four weeks after they were infected. During this primary HIV infection symptoms usually include fever, sore throat, headache, diarhea, swollen lymph nodes and a rash. I have experainced all but sore throat and rashe. in addition persistant headache, stomach ache, loss appetite and diarrhea. During this window period eaither 6 weeks - 3 months test show negative result.
Avatar n tn The reason for my asking though is that, whilst I'm knowledgeable that HIV is largely asymptomatic, I can't help but feel I have acquired some of the early symptoms frequently mentioned on many of the posts. Exposure Largely out of character, I had protected intercourse with a sex worker at a bachelor party. Without giving too much detail, intercourse didn't last too long (less than 5 minutes) and the condom was still in tact as I withdrew upon climaxing.
Avatar n tn Before I address your personal concerns, let me also emphasize that the internet is sometimes not a good place to seek information about HIV or, for that matter, other health symptoms. The symptoms of HIV, like those of many other illnesses, are share by many other health problems. Health care providers go to school for long periods of time to learn how to best put the variety of symptoms and signs that each person has to generate an accurate diagnosis.
Avatar n tn right now, the 20th day, i realised ive been having red dots on my back and my bottom, they seem like pimples but smaller, and often they itch. i am wondering if these are HIV symptoms, and usually how long after exposure do the symptoms develop? i am very scared now ...
1503835 tn?1302984542 Symptoms are not helpful in judging new HIV infections. The identical symptoms occur in acute HIV infection and in innumerable other, minor medical conditions. In any case, your symptoms are on the late side -- usual onset is 10-14 days -- and HIV rarely causes only minor pharyngitis or low grade fever. Over two thirds of newly infected people have all 3 among severe sore throat, fever (typcially 38C or higher), and body-wide skin rash.
