Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms most common


Avatar f tn i mean that what would be the most common symptoms among 40 to 90% people who show the symptoms? can these symptoms appear 7.5 weeks after exposure? i only have painful lymph nodes in my left neck, my right armpit. i dont know exactly if they are swollen. they are not but i am feeling pain in these areas and sometimes in my groin. can lymph nodes due to hiv cause pain? other wise i didnt got any other symptoms like fever or rash. only these painful areas..
Avatar f tn Do u think anxiet can case same symptoms in all of them even thou most of them didnt even think about hiv till they got these symptoms ? Is there a different virus they got and duno about it thats why all of them experiance the same symptoms !? Im just thinking loud and would like to hear ur opinion ..
Avatar f tn What are the most common ars symptoms? Would it be a fair assement to say that if you do NOT have the Rash or the Swollen Lymphnodes glands that you do not have the ARS symtoms?
Avatar n tn 6 wks neg test even though convinced from symptoms I have hiv. I am waiting for 3 month result and though nervous as heck I am beginning to think my problem has been mental and emotional guilt more than real risk. what do you think represent most forms of trans from male to male in terms of sexual contact? anal 99% of the time? less? there must be some stats on male to male sexual transmission of hiv?
Avatar n tn Well you did put yourself at risk for HIV so testing is the only way to know your status. Symptoms do not tell you anything about being infected. Most people who test NEG have most ARS 'Like" symptoms and then most people who test POS have no symptoms at all. This is why symptoms mean nothing when it comes to HIV. You will need to wait 3 months after your last unprotected vaginal or anal sex to get a conclusive result.
Avatar n tn You and I have come to different conclusions. Most people who have molluscum do not have HIV. In persons with HIV the infection is more aggressive bu tthat is only in persons who have had HIV for years. I have nothing more to say. Please let us know about your test results as they become available. I remain confident they will be negative.
Avatar m tn HIV has no specific symptoms. If you had a risk the only way to know your status is by testing.
Avatar m tn I have also been feeling a sore lower back, it may because I lift boxes all the time at work but I am wondering if it is common or a indication that I may have HIV. also when do ARS symptoms occur mostly and what are the most common ones. I havent had any other symptoms of ARS and its been a few months since I had unprotected sex with her. i am concerned and worrying about this lately and just looking for an answer by a qualified DR. thanks in advanced for your input.
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 n tn my exposure was 6 weeks ago now, but i still have symptoms, i try to relax but the symptoms persist, its been about 6 weeks now with symptoms especially the tingling sensation in hands and sometimes in feet most after waking up, is this very common. my 4 weeks test was negative twomorrow i am going to do the 6 weeks if am negative 2morrow (i am praying for it) what is the percentage i am not infected?
Avatar m tn Your wife's symptoms do not sound like those of an acute HIV infection, but even if they did, the odds would be against it; even classical acute HIV symptoms usually are caused by other, more common viral infections. Further, it is pretty much impossible that you caught HIV, transmitted it to your wife, and she developed symptoms all within 2 months since your last negative test. Further, most sex workers -- including those in India (if your username means you live there) -- do not have HIV.
Avatar m tn Out of these symptoms, Fever, headache and sore throats are so common, that how someone call diagnose that these are because of HIV infection and not due to common cold? 2) Is there any pattern in which these symptoms occur, what is the timeframe in which these symptoms first occur and how long these persists (Days, Week)? Do these symptoms repeat in specific pattern in initial 3 to 6 months?
Avatar n tn But colds, flu, and other viral infections are extremely common; occurrence of symptoms like yours soon after sex doesn't necessarily mean they are connected. Assuming you indeed had NGU (nongonococcal urethritis, which is the preferred term for "NSU"), that's the only thing you got from the sexual exposures you describe. I'm also inclined to ask whether most of your symptoms are psychological, related to the anxiety you obviously are feeling.
Avatar n tn Could there be a chance these are HIV symptoms.
Avatar m tn There may be some other symptoms, such as swollen glands, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, but the 3 symptoms are the most common ones, with at least high fever definitely being present. 3) What about HIV rash?? I need more info on HIV rash.I did not get what is a rash? how it looks like? which color? big or small? bulgy? How does it feel? itchy? burning? painful? how the HIV rash could be differentiated from normal rashes? --> Rash is a change of the skin color.
Avatar n tn Your spot on your tongue also does not sound like any of the common symptoms for acute hiv. Finally, you should not be looking for symptoms, that is not wise and will lead you to believe symptoms for hiv are present when they are not there- like the rash on your leg which would not be a result of hiv. The likelihood of you acquiring hiv from a minute of unprotected intercourse, with a portion of the populaiton that rarely has hiv in the first place is very very small.
936016 tn?1332769204 What are the symptoms of HIV? This is a common question we receive here at Freedom Health. According to this article on emedicine ( ) , 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.
Avatar n tn That's because the symptoms of new HIV infection are identical to those of innumerable other conditions, all more common than HIV. Even among people with the highest risk exposures, the classical symptoms of ARS usually are due to something else. If you have tested negative for HIV more than 4-6 weeks after your past exposure, that result tells the truth and outweighs your symptoms, no matter what they are. OK, now I have read the questions themselves. Guess what?
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 yea dont rely on symptoms with hiv 3 months ago i had all your symptoms plus many more it freaked me out i got tested everything was neg so that just goes to show you in viruses like hiv symptoms are never a good indicator because those symptoms are common with almost every virus get tested again at 8 weeks for a 98-99percent accurate test then 12/13 for a conclusive
Avatar f tn 4) People may or may not have symptoms. Yours don't suggest HIV. 5) Most people with new HIV infection get symptoms. But the vast majority of people with symptoms -- even when symptoms are typical for ARS (which yours are not) -- have other things wrong. The symptoms of ARS are identical to those of a hundred other minor viruses and other medical conditions. See a health care provider. That's what people do when they have symptoms that concern them.
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 One side of the groin only) - I would not worry about your symptoms and get tested at the 3 month mark Most people who test NEG have swollen nodes and most who test POS do not have symptoms at all. That is why symptoms do not tell you anything.
Avatar m tn Sometimes i wake up in the middle of the night as i feel some shaking and sometimes feel like this heavy pressure on the head like its choking you. Although these peripheral neuropathy symptoms not common in all they still do appeared make feel 95% i got it. the girl keeps telling me she doesnt have it so im convince she is in the window period. as that makes it likely why i got it in one time exposure.
Avatar m tn Now i am having new symptoms every 2 to three days, Nausea but never vomited, the last one is muscle pain/needle/burning sensation in my back of the head/ feet/arm everywhere comes and go in seconds this is the most annoying symptoms. The only symptoms of HIV i didn't get is fever/Diarrhea/Enlarged lymph nodes in the neck, armpits or groin/ etc I had only one Diarrhea 24 hours after i took azithromycin 250g x 4.
Avatar n tn High Fever of 101.5 F or greater (experienced by 96% of ARS sufferers) Rash that is very faint, does not itch and appears on chest or stomach normally (70% experience) Sore throat Swollen lymph nodes (which only a doctor can tell you if they are swollen) Fatigue/General Malaise Diarreah (less common symptom) Loss of appetite/Nausea Like Teak said, symptoms are not a reliable indictor. I had all the symptoms and more 3 weeks post exposure but the Dr ran tests on me and said I had Mono.
Avatar n tn more than likely coincidence. only about 1% of the population is actually infected, so chances are this guy does not have hiv. even though preinseminal fluid is also infectious, the amount of fluid does not begin to compare to that lessens your chances even more. even if this man was is NOT an automatic transmission of hiv. now...with that being still put yourself at risk by having unprotected sex.
