Hiv symptoms runny nose

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms runny nose


Avatar n tn Over the last two-three weeks I have had different symptoms. It first started as a runny nose. When I blew my nose smelled kind of funny, the kind of smell mucus has when your sick. My runny nose was clear at first before turning green nearly clogging my nose. I had to clear out my nose several times a day because the mucus would become very thick and hard. My nose is still runny but the fluid is now clear. Symptoms then spread to my throat.
Avatar m tn However, I have also had a runny nose and I have been sneezing a lot. From what I am to understand, these are not symptoms of HIV. Or are they? If they aren't, does that mean that I can rule out the possibility of HIV? I probably just have a cold right? Anyway, I know I'm probably being paranoid because of the small chance of catching HIV (especially seeing how I don't have any other symptoms such as rash, swollen lymph nodes or body aching) but I just want some reassurance and confirmation.
Avatar m tn Symptoms are not relevant, the nature of exposure is? If you had unprotected intercourse you want to get tested at 3 months. Assuming you are a male who had unprotected vaginal intercourse the odds are very small that you caught. If the women was a sex worker, give it one chance in 100 and actual intercourse without a condom at 1 chance in 1000 - your odds are 1/100,000 - pretty good odds, but still worth a test at 3 months.
Avatar n tn Even though I tested negative at the 6-week mark, I still fear possibly being infected. Is a runny/stuffy nose or nasal drip a symptom of possible ARS symptoms? I don't have the funds to get a 13-week test done to put my mind at rest at the moment.
Avatar m tn Loose condom issue which many judged as a no risk situation. I have runny nose and greenish pleghm in throat and nose. Is this because of common cold or because of HIV I do not have any other symptoms like fever, headache ,nausea yet. Please reply.
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 i read online flu like symptoms can be a symptom of hiv. weeks ago i picked up a straw from the ground in water at the park with cuts. and now i have a runny nose few days ago . . i never engaged in any sexual activity or do drugs. does my runny nose have anything to do with the fact i picked up a used straw with cuts on my hand? should i be concerned?

Avatar n tn I began by just getting a runny nose and a bit of tiredness for a week and then that followed by extreme fatigue and muscle/joint paints that are getting worse. My girlfriend now has a cold as well and she can't seem to budge it. I am so so bloody nervous that I have not only caught HIV but have also given it to my girlfriend who I love so much and feel like the biggest idiot in the whole world right now for possibly ruining her life.
Avatar m tn Hey guys I had a post a few weeks back. I developed cold like symptoms runny nose,sneezing,coughing, and sore throat about a week and half after unprotected vaginal intercourse with a girl of uknown status. I started reading symptoms of hiv online and think i freaked myself out. I went to dr. about three weeks after exposure he said it was allergies and even gave me a wbc count to calm my nerves it was normal. Then at 4 weeks i got tested it was neg.
Avatar n tn I have been suffering from a mild sore throat and a dry cough (No runny nose, but I feel my ears are plugged a little bit). All those flu like symptoms started on the 30th of October and have been going on for 4 days now. I have also been feeling tired and sleepy during the past 4 days. During the sexual encounter I gave the girl a little bit of oral, my tongue touched her rectum pretty quick for one second maybe.
Avatar n tn is a runny nose watery eyes and sneezing a hiv symptom? its been 40 days sinse exposure . can ars start around the 39 or 40 day mark?
Avatar f tn Your symptoms relate to numerous other issues. From reading various reports online, the main symptoms are a Fever, body rash and Flu like (not to be confused with a cold). The scenario you mention doesnt sound like anything to be remotely worried about. Here is a great link of info put together by one of the moderators here. Ultimately the only way to be sure is to test. https://www.medhelp.
Avatar m tn Ive had a runny nose for the last 2 months, with no signs of other illness. I know that runny nose is not a sypmtom but it refused to go away. I have been healthy, working out ect. I get me blood test result back next week for all STD. Should i be worried about anything.
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 f tn Nope. HIV generally doesn't cause nasal congestion, runny nose, etc. You have a cold.
Avatar n tn I understand that I need to get tested for HIV and other std's but do the symptoms described above seem like initial HIV Symptoms? 3. When the lymph nodes swell due to HIV do they swell significantly to a size of pea or are they very minor swelling? I am really stressed out about this. Due to my anxiety i will get tested at 3,5,12 weeks. I can't focus at work and keep thinking about this all the time. Thanks in advance for your help.
Avatar n tn For last 3 days my symptoms are getting worse, it all started with ear pain, then stuffy nose, than runny nose, than headaches, then pain in the rib cage on both side, then pain on the kidneys on the right hand side, and know the watery eyes, when I blow my nose. Usually, I get better in 3 days or so, this is over 3 days. It seems like immune system is losing the battle... I am just concern, how can I tell my family members, how do I tell them ?
Avatar m tn I have had a nonstop headache, nausea, and been generally feeling flu ill like symptoms but no cold, runny nose or the like.
Avatar f tn After ten days or so I developed a slight cough, which has developed into a heavier cough with blocked/runny nose and some phlegm. I had a sore/stiff jaw too and my ears felt blocked. Still have a cough after three weeks. Are these symptoms? Please respond Sad and lonely Please everyone, BE SAFE.
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 f tn Me and my daughter e recently have gotten sick with a sore throat, coughing, head aches, ache body, runny nose and mild fever and just super sleepy. I have been paranoid that I could have caught something and transmitted it to my daughter in my breastmild. Do these sound like hiv symptoms at all? Could I have given it to my child? Im worried about getting tested and seeing a result.
Avatar n tn )- the cough and phelgm still continue today day 24- still have the hacking cough with clear phelgm and tender around the neck area ( I dont think I have swolen glands but I really couldnt be sure) I cant find any info on the web that puts coughing and runny nose as ars symptoms but it is definately clear that the sore throat and stiff neck are symtoms of ars, but diferent sites say different things, the yellow phelgm worries me as I read on one web site that this is a sign of an immune syste
Avatar f tn Thanks a lot , but i wanna know smthing iv tried finding if loss of appetite ,runny nose and cough symptoms but i couldnt , are they?? And also yes it was a one time thing even if the person is hiv ppsitive are the odds still low?
Avatar n tn What time period would you start to experience symptoms of ARS/HIV? It's been 8 weeks since my encounter, which I consider low low low risk, and I have gotten sick. Started with swolen tonsils, then moved to general flu/cold symtpoms (runny nose, sneezing, just general low feeling). Normally I hear it happens 4-5 weeks after exposure.
Avatar m tn On May 15th I had a sore throat which went away later in the day and now my nose is stuffy and runny. I also have a cough. I was wondering if this could be signs of Acute HIV Syndrome.
