936016 tn?1332769204 - Severe sore throat High Temperature A body rash These three classic symptoms and signs in an adult should suggest a possible HIV infection and should generate a suggestion that that person should have an HIV test. There are many other symptoms and signs such as severe muscle aches, headaches, night sweats, lymph node enlargement, and joint pains. All of these are valid but the key three features are as given above - 1) very high temperature 2) very sore throat 3) body rash.
Avatar n tn Didn't you read other posts on this forum? No matter how long it is, you will find antibodies after 4-6 weeks and after 3 months for sure. But after 20 years?? Dude, move on. If you had it, you would have been dead by now. You are fine, move on. Why are you getting tested after 20 years?
Avatar m tn In July 2010, I did three rapid test which were all positive. Given that the symptoms continued, I did the HIV 1/0/2 ICMA and the HIV-2 EIA tests at labcorp in August 2010. Both tests were negative/non-reactive. I did another rapid test for HIV 1/2 at the end of August which was again negative. So, my questions are: 1. Can I conclude that I am ok based on the exposure three years ago? 2.
Avatar n tn None of your symptoms sound like they are HIV related. You should get tested by three months after the incident, and the odds are overwhelmingly in your favor that you will not have hiv, so do not be so paranoid.
936016 tn?1332769204 It lasts about two to three months, though the symptoms will last for a shorter period. Seroconversion is also known as acute HIV infection. The symptoms of an HIV infection are often described as ‘flu-like,’ the most common are fever and chills, swollen glands, a sore throat (with or without ulcers), anaemia and rash, particularly on the upper body.
Avatar m tn Six months ago, I met a girl who is not promiscius one type, no drugs and as she is claimng, she had two long time relationships within a last three years. Month after we met, we had a condom with spermicide prorotected sexual intercourse (about 10 min) and unprotected oral sex. The problem was, at that time, I had two smal red spots on my penis. Not bleeding, just a red skin.

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.
Avatar n tn I have not been tested yet (last test was several years ago and was negative) and am afraid to find out the answer, but assuming I am HIV+, how long would I be symptom-free? Are there any alternatives to HAART? I am scared to death of having to go on regular drug treatment, because of the side effects and the fact that I can't afford it. If I go to get tested, how am I going to face the result if it is positive? I know these questions are moot, but please humor me.
Avatar n tn Two days after our encounter, I started to have odd symptoms that were pretty awful for about two weeks. These included bad swollen lymph nodes with a burning sensation, especially in my underarms though also in my neck, a REALLY bad headache that lasted about a week, the worst vaginal itching and burning I've ever had though without visible sores, bad abdominal pain in the area of my left ovary for two weeks, spleen pain as if it were enlarged, and occasional night sweats.
Avatar n tn If the cold I had was a result of Acute HIV Infection, would I have tested positive on the antibody test which was taken three weeks after cold symptoms began? 3. Temperature - wouldnt I have a significant temperature if I was fighting the Acute HIV Infection? 4. Would vomitting twice in a night be considered an HIV symptom or would you vomit for days? 5. Lastly, if my DNA PCR test returns negative, should I feel completely confident about the results? Thanks for your help.
Avatar f tn interaction occurred in early November. After three months I began experiencing flu symptoms so I purchased an at home HIV testing kit and tested negative. I also went to the doctor where I was swabbed and found negative also. Three months following my negative testing, I am once again experiencing some questionable symptoms like lymph node swelling, muscle aches, head aches, and shortness of breathe. I am convinced SOMETHING is going on and I am mortified at the thought of it being HIV.
148588 tn?1465782409 However, I AM saying that treatment definitely did NOT cause MY symptoms. How do I know that? I had the symptoms years, in fact, decades before I ever even knew I had Hep C and decades before I treated. So my symptoms were NOT caused by treatment. I know that for a fact. My Rheumatologist agrees with me. My Rheumatologist sees a lot of people with Hepatitis C and most of them have autoimmune disorders. These are people WITH Hep C. They are not post treatment.
Avatar n tn hi!my name is john!!i want to ask you about the symptoms of hiv!!it's been about 4 years now that i had sex with a girl tha we had a relationship for about one month. after we broke up i heard that her ex-boyfriend which she was with him for about 6 years,was taking drugs i had then an hiv test and it was negative. after these years i am feeling very well but anxiety is all over me.i do not have the courage to go and make a new hiv test..................can you help me please?????????????????
Avatar m tn I also have HIV and now most doctors just say its HIV neuralgia but I did not contract HIV until 7 years ago and have not been affected by it. My HIV is a non issue. I am the specialist on my symptoms; I have had them since I was 14. But I could deal with it then because they only happened about once every three or four years and only affected my hands, which would remain practically frozen shut for a week or two.
Avatar m tn I don't know if I am confusing stress symptoms by thinking that i'm infected or if this symptoms are real hiv symptoms. this four month had being very stressfull. . .my major worry is that the woman have hiv and thats the reason she is refusing doing the hiv test What should I do? Should I trust the three month elisa test?
Avatar m tn typically 10 or more) it progressively weakens an infected person's ability to fight infections of all sorts. As a result, in its advanced stages, after years of infection, persons with HIV can no longer fight off infection by micro organisms that people with normal immune systems co-exist with on a daily basis and as a result common, every day infections become even more common. These latter sorts of infections include fungal infections, sore throats, and sinusitis.
Avatar f tn I'm 17 years old male received unprotected oral sex and started to have symptoms 5 days post exposure till 3 month 1-fatigue 2-joint and muscle pain 3-upset stomach 4-sleep problems and many other symptoms I forget I the hiv prevention claiming that I had no risk and no need for testing but however I am going to test but I can't right now I need to wait two months later I need help I am dying because of these symptoms
Avatar m tn about a month ago i recieved unprotected oral sex not sure on there status and then a couple days later i had unprotected sex with one of my friends that ive known for a few years. i told him of my symptoms and he assure me that i was fine.
Avatar n tn HI, Three years after having had unprotected sex I've developed small rashes on my hand. They are slighty raised....They appear one by one..the most i've had is three which clears up with some cream..the weird thing is that they only appear on my left hand and it doesn't itch. I've also noticed that on my tongue there are two small white a pencil dot...that doesn't come off even when I brush my doesn't bleed, doesn't hurt. Could this be symptoms of HIV?
Avatar n tn You are reading wayyyyy too much into each word. If you have HIV symptoms and test neg at 6+weeks, so what? Your "Hiv" symptoms are not "Hiv" symptoms. Since HIV symptoms lines up with a million other things you certainly have one of the million other things. Most brought on by stress. Your risk factor and testing trumps all your symptoms. If you hav a 6-8 week test your done, move on, audios, next subject. Symptoms: HIV symptoms dont hang out.
Avatar n tn You need to test at 3 months to get a conclusive test result. The answer to your second question is yes you can contract HIV without having symptoms.
Avatar n tn I am quite certain she has not had an exposure( there are no secrets between us )( I had an HIV test three months after the exposure in 2001 so HIV I think is ruled out.
Avatar n tn i guess anyone in high risk group such as Gay, Bi-sexual,Iv drug users, should notice their sex risk and symptoms, because i have read many post in another forum, all messages tell us HIV is still very common among us. i think u know the fourm i am talking about. even many people were infected by unprotected anal, however, still a chance for a percentage people got it by giving oral. sometimes a single event made you being infected.
Avatar m tn but i did lots of blood test including viral load test at 3 weks after exposure hiv proviral dna test at 30 days after exposure. Also conducted HIV ag ab test T 45 days, ECILA test at 56 days, Again ag ab test at 75 days Elisa at 84 days and ECLIA test at 87 days... All result come back negetive. Sir still i do have strong symptoms of HIV...shud i recheck after 6months or can i do normal life..
Avatar n tn Where did I say it wasn't? I answered yes his 14 week question which was three years ago. "are oraquick tests after 14 weeks accurate?" Now if you think you've had a risk, feel free to ask.
Avatar f tn Between 50% and 70% of individuals with HIV infection experience an acute retroviral syndrome three to six weeks after primary infection. Symptoms usually persist for one to several weeks and then gradually subside as the immune response to HIV develops and the level of plasma viremia decreases. ARS symptoms vary greatly from person to person, and may be so mild as to go essentially unnoticed or be so severe as to be debilitating.
