Hiv symptoms stages

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms stages


Avatar f tn I know it takes time to go from stage 1,2 etc in liver disease and the older you are that time might be shorter(I think) but does having hepc also shorten the time between stages? In other words would a person that has maybe cirrhosis from alcohol is young and stops drinking or not progress slower than someone much older with hepc?
Avatar n tn Many, many people who are truly infected with HIV can recall NO symptoms at all. You can NOT diagnose HIV infection through ANY symptoms or lack of. If a person is truly experiencing ARS symptoms, they come all at once as a syndrome generally 1-4 weeks after infection, last 1-2 weeks, no longer and leave all at once. If you had a risk, get tested at 6 weeks and 13 weeks.
Avatar n tn Can anyone please let me know when the early (acute) symptoms appear in the HIV infection? What is the week span?

Avatar m tn In the future, please keep all of your comments in one thread. I have deleted your other post entitled "Additional Info", which I read and considered before responding below. Acute HIV infection does not produce the symptoms that you describe. And since you were never at risk, any symptoms that you experience cannot be due to HIV, even if you go on to experience classic ARS symptoms (which are usually caused by something other than HIV anyway).
Avatar f tn Quick question......I was curious can I show oral herpes if I only had sexual intercourse and not oral sex in any way. I didn't kiss her either. I've never had a cold sore, so I'm not sure how they start. Is there a pimple? How long does the pimple? I ask because I have had no symptoms in the groin in 40 days except "Jock Itch," which was checked and verified by a Planned Parenthood Nurse. Today I sent a quick e-mail to DR.
Avatar f tn They are the only doctors that can diagnosis the extent of her liver disease (cirrhosis) and then help her to manage her the complication and symptoms of her cirrhosis. HIV does not cause cirrhosis perhaps she is also coinfected with a form of hepatitis that can cause liver disease and ultimately cirrhosis after many decades of infection? Only a liver specialist and properly diagnosis the cause of her illness and if treatable treat it or at least manage some of the symptoms.
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 n tn I don't know. I hope not. I have this white coated hairy looking tongue for a year ever since my exposure. I will get a test soon will let you know later.
Avatar n tn What symptoms do you have when if any at all at begiinning stages of HIV? I have been feeling weird latley having weird head pains and pain behind eyes. Also light sensitvity and sleepiness. Prolly not at all HIV symptoms but was wondering? Btw I have been sufferig from axniety and depresssion so that doctor says.
Avatar m tn I had a brief affair almost six years ago. Do these symptoms point to HIV to you? I can't live like this!!!! It is driving me nuts. I have been married for 23 years. This is driving me nuts.
Avatar m tn My symptoms are kind of herpes on my lip, and gingivitis which couold be related to more advanced stages of HIV. Give me your opinions Fever 96% Adenopathy 74% Pharyngitis 70% Rash 70% Myalgias 54% Headache 32% Diarrhea 32% Nausea or vomiting 27% Hepatosplenomegaly 14% Thrush 12% Neurologic symptoms 12% The duration of symptoms is generally 1-3 weeks.
Avatar n tn (thrush being one of them) Many people experience no symptoms in the early stages of infection. The irony about HIV is that the people who have multiple risky exposures, don't think twice about it, and experience no symptoms are the ones who usually go on to test positive. It is the worried wells like us on this forum who usually have one low risk encounter and get so stressed about it that our body starts to do strange things that go on to be negative.
Avatar n tn You are reading wayyyyy too much into each word. If you have HIV symptoms and test neg at 6+weeks, so what? Your "Hiv" symptoms are not "Hiv" symptoms. Since HIV symptoms lines up with a million other things you certainly have one of the million other things. Most brought on by stress. Your risk factor and testing trumps all your symptoms. If you hav a 6-8 week test your done, move on, audios, next subject. Symptoms: HIV symptoms dont hang out.
Avatar n tn Secondly, even without a condom, any expert will tell you that it is difficult to contract HIV. What you describe are not symptoms of HIV. Semi-white tongue is normal and it doesn't come off by scraping when it's a symptom of HIV. And even so, White Tongue (or Thrush) only happens in late stages of HIV, not 9 weeks or even a year. Mild Diarrhea can be due to anything and is not a symptom on its own (stress probably).
Avatar m tn I know that these are all symptoms at various stages of HIV, and was just wondering if this combination of symptoms sounds like anything suspicious? I got tested at 3 weeks for HIV and it came back negative, do you think I need to get tested again?
Avatar m tn Do oral problems manifest in the early stages of hiv?? Is it normal to be suffering symptoms for 7 weeks if this is seroconversion?
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 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 Hi guys, I wanna know the symptoms of different stages of HIV. I have had sex 9 times with 7 different girls.Among them there are some call girls. Recently I have made sex with a call-girl on 25th august 2008.Everything was fine .But since last 6 days I am feeling pain indeed severe pain in my legs,ankle and hips.The pain sometimes covers hips area...and sometime it attacks only in ankle.Also I felt yesterday that my face was swollen a little.
Avatar n tn HHH is about the fact that ARS symptoms are almost useless in predicting HIV, I had many of the typical symptoms, including rash on neck/chest, a period of a low grade fever, tender lymph nodes in my neck, one case of diarhea, one case of night sweats, and the general feeling I was in the first stages of catching a cold. Of course I was worried. 7 weeks after the unprotected sex, I tested NEGATIVE for HIV.
Avatar m tn Your negative result after 2 years confirmed you HIV status if you didn't have any other risky encounters before 2 years. Symptoms typically are irrelevant to HIV. ARS symptoms typically start within a month after possible infection other symptoms start when HIV is progressing ro late stages (on average 7 years). Please practice safe sex. Google mostly yields the most authoritive website like CDC which lists symptoms without really describing what they are like.
Avatar m tn But I would think that it would have to be in the later stages for HIV or AIDS to infect your WBC count too. So if someone did not suspect to have HIV and did not test themselves when indeed they we're infected the whole time, Then some where down the line they would eventually bring themselves to the hospital over fever or symptoms and Dr would prb.
Avatar m tn 1) Are these more specific HIV or other STD symptoms or is me discoverying them out of anxiety.) 2) Any knowledge of unanimous STD/HIV testing in Canada 3) Does these symptoms coming in stages mean anything? Please your urgent response is highly appreciated as I am worried about passing on any illness to my wife.
Avatar m tn It does not matter whether HIV can cause any particular kind of rash, what other symptoms you have, or whether your partner's HIV test results are reliable (but they are). YOUR test results PROVE you did not catch HIV. There is no information you can provide that would change that conclusion or my advice, so that will be all for this thread.
