hiv

Avatar m tn I believe I am experiencing late stage HIV/AIDS symptoms and repeatedly test negative with anti body tests. I have shingles now, continue to loss weight in my arms and legs and I have three brownish , purple spots on my thigh about the size of a quarter that look like bruises but do not fade or blanch when pressed upon.
Avatar f tn 100 days post a high risk exposure was tested for hiv by blood test, negative, also had one maybe three week closer to th exposure.  At this point past all the regular symptoms explained many times on this site, lve had them all from  a to z.
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 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 m tn I've been on Doxycycline for 3 weeks or so and am feeling a little better it seems. Is there a definitive blood test for late stage cardiovascular or nuerosyphillis? Any ideas on what other testing or suggestions on what to do? Is it possible to have late stage syphillis but have a negative RPR and FTA-ABS? Any help, guidance or suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks!
Avatar n tn Yes it does sound like lyme, but late stages of lyme. I went through some of the symptoms you have and never tested positive to lyme until after I had finished my antibiotic treatment. My doctor had no idea what was wrong with me. In the beginning I had pins and needles in my feet and hands. Then I had a headach that would kill a moose, the pain went across my eyebrows and down the side of my face and into my jaw. That lasted about 3 weeks, no treatment.
Avatar f tn My question is how accurate this test can be in late stage infection and based on my symptoms should i get any further hiv testing.
Avatar m tn According to the studies I've read, you have the same chance of being cured regardless of stage unless you are stage 4 which is more difficult. In other words, someone with stage 3 damage has the same chance of being cured as someone with stage 1 damage.
Avatar m tn Basically, back in early February I had my first encounter. Had Sexual Intercourse with a girl, she was a fellow student; 18 and English, presumably her number of partners couldn't be that many considering her age. Anyhow, after this exposure the following occured: 4 days after - Beginning of Fever/Flu symptoms/Swollen testacles.
Avatar m tn I am also one of those few people that had symptoms while acute. I am actually in the acute stage at the moment waiting to see if I might clear on my own. The chance is low but it is there. But I had every symptom you could have. It started with me feeling like I had the flu which I thought nothing of. Next I got rash spots on my legs and belly.
Avatar n tn and this is an especially weird disease, in that some people can have cirrhosis and have no symptoms, and some people can have stage 0 or stage 1 (low to no liver damage) and have many symptoms... many docs and researchers think it's because it's the virus itself that wreaks havoc with the immune system, etc...and that;s what's causing many symptoms...
Avatar m tn so I developed severe anxiety worrying to death that I might be infected with HIV…I saw the late symptoms of the second stage of HIV but I had none of them…but with time I started to feel them one after the other…I had burning tongue (witch maybe erythematous candidaiss ) but after few weeks it went away and then I started to notes that I have too much scales on my face and behind the ear (even though I have dandruff since I can’t even remember and scales behind the ears and some around the nos
Avatar n tn evryone! if symptoms do occur..does "dark urine and light stools" will be the most likely to occur?,anyways,i will have my test after 4 mos. as evryone said,4 mnths is the right time to be tested.

Avatar n tn Anxiety can be very hard to get through. Please also note that symptoms or the lack thereof are never an indication of HIV contamination, so please stop trying to look for them and do not browse the internet needlessly. Also remember for next time that after a risky encounter you can go to the hospital and ask for PEP treatment within 48h of exposure which the Dr will give you or not depending on the risk taken and the context.
Avatar n tn im sorry one last question how could i possibly got a purple blotch on my arm i never had one before it was 2 inches wide , if i have hiv can it be progressing into a late stage too fast cause i heard you start getting blotches at late stages , i need to get tested but im too scared and im probabbly running out of time too fast sorry any prespective would be really appreciated
Avatar m tn Lymphadenopathy can occur in symptomatic stage HIV . Lymph nodes swell for many reasons the vast majority of them not HIV.
Avatar n tn Hi - here is a <a href="http://www.medhelp.org/forums/hepatitis/messages/30195a.html">response</a> to a similar question posted on this forum a while back. Liver damage is caused by buildup of scar tissue ("fibrosis"). The amount of fibrosis is usually determined by a liver biopsy and is graded in different "stages". There are a number of different scoring systems.
Avatar n tn Do you want us to tell you that you are right?! If we do so, then we would avoid telling you what we know about HIV. A single test anytime after 3 months is conlusive. You don't need more tests. Always remember that HIV isn't an easy virus to transmit. Insertive vaginal sex is a good example of how HIV isn't an easy virus to transmit. Good luck. R.
Avatar n tn ---stage A (compensated cirrhosis) ---stage B (the beginning of decompensation) ---stage C (decompensated cirrhosis) A person with Stage B cirrhosis, is starting to show the physical effects of portal hypertension. (Ascites and/or varices) A person with Stage C cirrhosis has so much damage (so much distortion) that ---- along with the problems of portal hypertension--- their liver FUNCTION declines.
Avatar m tn I am concerned about the possibility of they were not covered by condom. So I tested PCR Quantitative For HIV 13 days later and it was ok. 43 days after this exposure I tested again (3rd generation HIV 1 & 2) and 59 days I tested again (4th generation test). They all were negative. But 5 days ago I had fever (38,5ºC) and yesterday again (39ºC). I have some problemes with Diarrheya too.
Avatar m tn Two other short lived symptoms I had were tingling in the hands and feet off and on for a few days and a nasty taste in my mouth late during two nights as I woke up. Neither of these symptoms have returned in any form. The only symptoms I have now are the insomnia and a mild white coat on my tongue with bumps, but centralized to the back of the tongue. I also had loss of appetite during mid December, which lasted a week. Now I am regularly hungry again. Could HIV cause any of this?
Avatar m tn the flu, which Joggen has stated ISN'T suggestive of ARS, or a late stage OI. If you and your wife are in a mutually exclusive relationship then HIV isn't really an issue here.
Avatar f tn 4 by ear, but it was back down in the 98s late morning today. Are these symptoms typical for very early stage Ars? Plan to get tested at 4 weeks when the test is 95% accurate but would like some input in the mean time.
Avatar m tn late stage? do you think you were infected 2 weeks ago and now you're in the late stage of aids? c'mon now..........................
Avatar m tn Of course it will be accurate. As long as you haven't put yourself at risk less than 3 months before testing.
