Hiv symptoms early signs

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms early signs


Avatar f tn Never gauge HIV infection, using the yardstick of symptoms. Symptoms are most of the time confusing and misleading. Since it is more than 4 weeks past your exposure, go get yourself tested, collect your conclusive report and move on with your life.
Avatar n tn One of my questions is, Ive read in several places that white spots in the mouth are early signs of HIV, and then I've read that they are much later signs of HIV. Which is true? These spots seem more like scraps or cuts of where my teeth may have rubbed up on my inner mouth but Ive never really had this. They seem to heal in 2 days. Cause this be an early sign? I'm extremely stressed, cant sleep, can barely eat or think straight from the anxiety of this.
Avatar n tn I don't think anyone has every gotten HIV from a single exposure of unprotected vaginal sex. Your symptoms do not reflect HIV (5 chances in 10,000 according to the CDC). ARS symptoms are flu-like and are experienced a week to three weeks after exposure. However, there are a hundred other illnesses that can cause these symptoms which are way more likely than HIV. Plus, your partner probably wasn't infected. Your chances are 1/100,000 at worst. Don't worry, get tested at 6 weeks.
Avatar n tn // Ive had several weird symptoms after having vaginal sex with a high risk individual. I got tested at 3 weeks out and 7 weeks out both were negative. I keep reading that if there is some sort of immune problem with your body it would take minimum 3 months for HIV to be detected. I've been suffering from adverse drug reactions to quinolones for 16 months.
Avatar m tn yes was penetration but not with a broken condom becouse he was trying to penetrate me and we heart a noise so he checked immediately couz penetration was so slowly becouse I was a virgin, hope u understend. I know HIV is not based imto symptoms but symtoms that I described are related to ARS? My body temperature change so offen from 36.6 rises to 37 or 37.2 and about 30 min latter without medicaments it goes down to 36.9 or 36.8.
Avatar m tn I have feeling in the roof of my mouth like I have burnt it but have not, could what I'm describing be early signs of HIV infection??
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 m tn I can understand how looking at web sites that provide lists of symptoms can fuel anxiety, particularly for an infection like HIV that causes few symptoms and for which the symptoms that are caused tend to be non-specific. The long and the shot of things is that for HIV diagnosis there is simply no substitute for testing.
Avatar n tn Teak, other members My wife has frequent bruise like marks on her legs, her gynecologist suggested blood clotting from time to time Her mother has similar marks also She coughs at night sometimes, family doctor suggested allergies Otherwise she is in good health Is early symptoms of aids manifested this way Thank you AZ
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 *Can stress and anxiety mimic all the early symptoms of HIV? Yes. Plus, you have to understand that TRUE ARS symptoms are very commonly seen in SO many other conditions/infections/issues. It's not like HIV has a unique telltale symptom that would be hard to ignore if it presented. Not to mention, the timing of your symptoms (like remar said) would absolutely exclude HIV infection, even if you had HAD a real risk (which you didn't).
Avatar m tn You had no risk
Avatar n tn On 1/3, I saw my primary physician and told her the whole sad story and worry that I may have exposed myself to HIV. She checked me for any signs. There were no signs of swollen nodes, fever, or anything except my extreme anxiety. She sent me to the lab for full blood work and everything came back negative. Saw urologist on 1/4 and he said no node swelling except mild prostate swelling. The female partner told me she is fine and has been screened for everything.
Avatar m tn no risk at all.those symptoms can be from anxiety or other viruses and bacterias but not HIV.
Avatar n tn My questions are 1) I have read in places, ears popping, runny nose, sore throat could be causes of the onest of HIV / STD. Are these symptoms after a couple of hours / days possible signs that i have been infected. I do have them. 2) I noticed a small red mark on my penile shaft, it has now cleared up i was concerned it could of been a cut. 3) My left testicle has had a dull ache non stop since this event, could this be anything. 4) Could i have passed anything on through kissing?
Avatar m tn No they are not signs of HIV, HIV is not transmitted by oral sex.
Avatar n tn I'm going to get tested next week in the 10 day window. In the meantime, what signs/symptoms should I look out for for HIV and other STDs? Can symptoms show up this early? My real concern is HIV.
Avatar n tn 3 days later I still feel the same is it possible that this could be the early signs of HIV?? Please help I'm very concerned.
556087 tn?1226599014 No it was to early to develope symptoms that early and as you know you can't go by signs or symptoms. If you want to test which you should test at 6-8 weeks post exposure and then do a 3 months conclusive test.
Avatar n tn Anyone know?
Avatar n tn Hi there, 6 days is kind of a liitle to early and are not specific for HIV(ARS). HIV is diagnosed through a blood test, not through signs and symptoms. Do not scare yourself with the illnesses If you have unprotected intercourse, you can go for a HIV test 1 month after exposure and retest at the 3rd month for a conclusive result.
