Hiv symptoms develop

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms develop


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 m tn and i eat a doxycline which already treatable since that i have no nothing about hiv and after 5weeks i develop a fever only for one day and i read at the internet this symthomps is like acute hiv infection and i starting to fear every single night since that i have develop many symthomps of acute infection like muscle aches,diarhea,the sore throat before flu.
Avatar f tn You have no disease. HIV can't be caught from oral sex so all those "symptoms" are just in your mind. They occur because you are worrying yourself into a bit of a frenzy because the disease is repugnant to you, however disease is not contagious from worry so you won't get it that way either. You wasted your money on the test and I am surprised the doctors would not tell you that.
Avatar m tn In less than a week I developed viral-type symptoms (fatigue, headache, sweating, chills, etc.) Is it possible to develop hiv symptoms in less than a week after exposure?
Avatar n tn The symptoms you describe don't sound at all like HIV, and in any case HIV symptoms cannot come on less than 7-10 days after exposure. Almost cerrtainly you caught a cold, either during that event (if you're close enough to have sex, you can catch a respiratory virus from someone) or from someone else. Colds are common at all times of year, not just in the winter. The most common cause of oral ulcers is a canker sore, which can be triggered by colds or other infections.
Avatar m tn Kissing is not a way of transmitting of HIV. All your symptoms are due to anxiety or some other illness...
Avatar m tn Most ppl who actually do get HIV don't even know it for years before they develop symptoms. This is what you need to do, First Relax, second retest at the right time see below for testing time line only if your encounter was unprotected and since you have no idea it may be best just to get it done right Gonorrhea, chlamydia, trick- 7 days post exposure Syphilis- 6-8 weeks HSV- 3 months HIV- 3 months Testing before is a good indicator but not conclusive.
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 ...
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 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 m tn You'll find several (hundreds) of cases on this forum where people develop several symptoms and yet test negative. I am not a doctor but going through the same scare myself. Your symptoms sound more related to anxiety than HIV. However, since unprotected sex is a (small) risk for HIV, get yourself tested as teak advised and move on. The odds are very much in your favor that you did not contract HIV. Good luck.
Avatar n tn The one thing that does keep turning up in my research as my symptoms persist and continue to evolve is HIV. I've ordered my Home Access test and figure it will be at least two weeks until I have results, and those results will only show antibodies at about the 45 days post-possible exposure stage. In the meantime, can anyone tell me if these symptoms sound like any acute HIV infection they have ever heard of? How about any other std?
Avatar n tn You have a good understanding of the timing of the ARS and the subsequent time course of HIV infection. However, you have seemed to missed our repeated statements that the symptoms of the ARS are TOTALLY non-specific and when people experience "ARS symptoms" they are much more likely to have something else, usually some other, more typical virus infection.
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 A day after the discoloration I woke up with a swollen left lymph node on my neck which i still have. One week after that, all kind of symptoms started to develop. I had fevers on and off this pass week, usually at 99.6. Lost of appetite. White spots all over my arms. Brown liverspot looking spots on my face and all over my body. Old insect bites that had scared and fadded a couple years ago began to reappear and is more visible than ever.
Avatar m tn So was the test i had a good indication that i don't have hiv or could these symptoms indicate that i do have hiv.. since i got my results back night sweats stopped but since i got a sore throat they have came back.. and sometimes I get muscle aches but it comes and goes like almost feels like it bruised or something.
Avatar m tn 1) May I know at what time frame the initial symptoms(high fever,sore throat,Rash) usually appears? --> 2-4 weeks post-exposure; the earliest is 10 days. They will last for 1-2 weeks (or even longer in some cases), and will disappear afterward. 2) Does all these 3 symptoms appears together for all of 70-80% of infected people (who get symptoms) or they may get any of these 3? --> Dr.
936016 tn?1332769204 com/article/211873-overview ) , it is thought around 70% of people who contract HIV will develop symptoms when they are seroconverting. Seroconversion is the period between exposure to the HIV virus and the completion of the initial response of your immune system. It lasts about two to three months, though the symptoms will last for a shorter period. Seroconversion is also known as acute HIV infection.
Avatar m tn I see no reason for blood tests or even other urine/swab tests. HIV questions pleas epost in the HIV forum. But you did not have a HIV risk.
Avatar m tn If tested one year ago negative and cbc count was normal, if you were exposed shortly thereafter, could you experience symptoms of hiv 1 year later. diagnosed with folliculitus and seborric dermatisis. Read everywhere these are signs of hiv. Could these develop within 1 year?? Please help.
Avatar f tn 11 months ago i gave unprotected oral sex to a female prostitute,ive had5 hiv tests all after the 3 month window period,all negative,with the last being 2 weeks ago.
Avatar f tn if you go to the expert forum you will read that most people infected will develop symptoms 2-4 weeks after infection and that symptoms will not last more tah 2 weeks. but since you had unprotected sex i think you should go test if you passed the 3 months after exposure.
Avatar m tn It has caused me anxiety, and of course, in a matter of a couple of weeks, I started to develop symptoms. Perhaps I could be worrying needlessly, but the timing, of course, is bothersome. First of all, I have had a sore throat which has come and gone since approximately january 3rd. This has been accompanied on occasion by chills. Though my jaw feels a little swollen, My glands to do not seem swollen, though the glands in my groin may be.
Avatar m tn Conditions tht would 'block' antibody creation include a compromised immune system, people who just had transplants and people on PEP. NORMALLY, ARS symptoms develop within 2-4 weeks after infection. More likely thn not you DID not contract HIV frm those two exposures. Smile. =) You're clean.
