Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms liver

Avatar m tn Welcome to our Forum. I see that you have asked the same question earlier of Dr. Handsfield and have asked this questions as two separate questions on this Forum. I have deleted your second question on this Forum and have read Dr. Handsfield’ response to you. I agree with what he has said to you. The exposure you describe was no risk for HIV. Even if your partner had HIV and that is unlikely, condom protected sex is safe sex and does not put you at risk for HIV.

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 n tn HIV doesn't cause liver damage it's the meds for HIV than can damage your liver and you aren't on HIV medication.
Avatar m tn I had my galbladder removed and the surgeon said my liver was fine, and my gastrointerologist says liver is good as well. I am just wondering because I cannot get a diagnosis for my enlarged spleen, so was thinking mabie some kind of indolent lymphoma or chronic leukemia. My low counts and red hands did not present until about 6 months ago, and my spleen has been enlarged for about 2 1/5 years. So it seems like they are caused by the enlarged spleen.
Avatar m tn I did have symptoms in my acute phase back in 1985 but there was no such thing as Hep C back then so nobody knew it was actue hep. I was on chemo for Leukemia at the time so they just passed it off as a chemo problem for me.
Avatar n tn To be safe, I suggest you see a clinic or doctor about these symptoms today. Hepatitis is not a concern for the symptoms you describe, at least not acquired only a few days before onset. What you say about hepatitis B applies to most infectious diseases, except for a relatively small handfull like rabies, ebola, smallpox, and others.
Avatar n tn When the hep c gets at your liver it causes all kinds of bad effects because the liver isnt cleaning out the possions like it should.
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 f tn Remember, however, that symptoms, even all of the above listed symptoms, do not equal HIV disease. There are many illnesses that can cause these symptoms. The only way to know if you've contracted HIV is to get tested. After initial ars smyptoms dissapear it can take up to ten years for them to resuface.
Avatar m tn Hbv has no symptoms and in the few rare cases it Has they are signs of immune activation common to any infection from cold/flu to all infections.
Avatar f tn i am havin weird symptoms dry mouth oral thrush sickness diarheoa headaches sleeping difficulty tiredness in the day i also have been diagnosed with oral thrush which as been on going for 16 months i read all symptoms and got hiv so i got tested as i was unaware i had been put at risk of hiv my blood test indicate high white blood count and neutrophilis high i was diagnosed 15 months ago with glanduler fever but reading up hiv can be wro
Avatar m tn Only a blood test diagnosis HIV. Your Dr is right anxiety is the cause of symptoms.
Avatar m tn 1. See above about STD symptoms. You should be checked,. Your other symptoms do not suggest HIV at all and, in fact, are far more likely to be due to a combination of anxiety and possibly a community acquired, non-STD/non-HIV viral illness. Symptoms are useless as an indicator of the likelihood of early HIV. 2. I am not sure about anonymous HIV testing but the Department of Public Health STD Clinics offer highly confidential testing for STDs and HIV. 3. No Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn That's the only viable coure of action if you think you may have contracted HIV. You will not have shown symptoms of ARS this long after exposure. No one on this forum can accurately guess what is causing your symptoms. Work with your doctor to figure out what your medical issue is. Be well.
Avatar m tn Your symptoms are not HIV specific. HIV is diagnosed through a blood test, not through signs and symptoms. When doing a HIV test, one needs to take note of the window period, which is between 1 to 3 months after an exposure. One can go for a HIV test at the 1st month and repeat at the 3rd month for a conclusive result. Cheers!
Avatar m tn There is really nothing in your description, either of the risk or of your symptoms, that suggests HIV. But since you're nervous about it, have an HIV test. Enough time has gone by for 100% reliable testing. You can expect it to be negative. HIV cannot be transmitted sexually other than by penile-vaginal or penile-anal intercourse, rarely penile-oral, never by genital rubbing. If you need more detail, you'll have to re-post your question in the correct forum.
Avatar m tn How would you quantify the accuracy of these results? If my symptoms really were from acute HIV would the test have been positive? Any reason for further tests?
Avatar m tn I had posted a post regarding my hiv concern a month ago.
Avatar m tn Although, it is a big relief for me that you think I do not have HIV(AS i AM CLOSE TO A nervous breakdown) afraid of it , but if I do not have HIV then what the hell do I have. Which std has these symptoms, of yellow urine, muscle weakness, fatigue of another level, always tired and hairfall. please let me know and I state with intent that I will not repeat my posts promise. I just want an answer. Because the doctors here really do not know.
Avatar m tn In terms of any possible HIV symptoms, I have noticed about 5 tiny rashes from looking hard around my body but I am not concerned about them as I wouldn't have noticed them if I wasn't looking. I had some pain on my left wisdom tooth last week but that has now gone away. My health is still very good overall and so the wait goes on. I guess the next 2 weeks will be critical. The PEP has 2 weeks to run and would any firm HIV viral infection simptoms appear on me?
451075 tn?1210262248 I am too scared to go get tested, but I took a full blood work test including a liver function test and it came back completely normal, even though 3 weeks before that test, I had a liver function test that showed my liver enzymes were through the roof (but I was taking tylenol, acyclovir and was drinking heavily at the party). I know bloodwork doesn't mean anything in HIV infections and that only a test can show, but I am too scared to go. I cannot take this anymore.
Avatar n tn Drugs and chemicals can cause a wide variety of liver injury and may include mild elevations in blood levels of liver enzymes without symptoms or signs of liver disease. Elevated liver enzymes can also indicate inflammation or damage to cells in the liver. In most cases, liver enzyme levels are elevated mildly and temporarily. If it persists, have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn and the large majority of CSWs in Singapore don't have HIV anyway. Your symptoms are not typical for HIV anyway, and an ophthalmologist has already examined you and given you a diagnosis unrelated to HIV. In any case, HIV test results always overrule symptoms and exposure history, so even if you had had a substantial exposure or typical symptoms, your negative test results prove you didn't catch HIV. Ten weeks is always sufficient time for reliable testing.
Avatar m tn In light of this description, can my symptoms indicate HIV, and, also, what other illness with similar symptoms could I have caught there? Any help will be appreciated.
Avatar n tn Please read other forum threads about how low your risk is. Symptoms mean nothing. Undoubtedly the doctor you saw reassured you. There is no need fo rhIV testing. 1) Symptoms are meaningless as an indicator of new HIV infection. Search the threads for "ARS symptoms" and/or "HIV symptoms". 2) Many of your symptoms are due to anxiety. None are due to HIV. 3) I don't know. Maybe some of your symptoms are due to smoking. 4) You do not need testing.
Avatar n tn Hey I'm 23 and I was DX with .......Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in 2005. Was found after I was in a car accident and my AST & ALT levels were up into the 400 and 300.......they have ruled out all Heps and HIV. So it's not that. They did a process of elimination basicly. And came up with the NAFLD. I have had my gallbladder removed still pain terrible.And now my enzymes are going crazy again they flare up high in to the 350's and I get extremly sick vommitin and what not.
Avatar m tn You shouldn't need any additional liver enzyme tests unless you begin to have signs or symptoms of trouble with your liver. Contact your doctor immediately if you have unusual fatigue or weakness, loss of appetite, pain in your upper abdomen, dark-colored urine, or yellowing of your skin or eyes. http://www.mayoclinic.
