Hiv symptoms time

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms time


Avatar n tn I know my calculated risks are 1 in 10,000 for a BJ. I know symptoms are not a good indicator of HIV infection. My question may appear similar to before, but, I would like to ask it anyway in hopes you can clear up my confusion about information on the web. In short, it is now 5 weeks since my exposure, my face (forehead, nose and upper cheeks) feels hot and appears slightly red with small bumps/blotches. My arms still have a burning sensation along with my back and legs.
Avatar n tn hi! I had sex with a woman without condom... One day after that I hat temperature-not high 38 ...I don't have any other symptoms for now-maybe it is just cold...Is it possible hiv simptoms to start so fast-one or 2 days after exposure???
Avatar m tn My other question is, I know this varries from person to person but how long has it take for HIV related symptoms to show up once one has been tested positve, any input would be appreciated. Best to everyone out there. Thanks, Alex.
Avatar m tn I have read many conflicting things on the internet about the asymptomatic time period of hiv, I have read the average amount of years before you develop AIDS without treatment is 10 years. What is the average amount of time before most people know they have hiv (develop symptoms that alert them) and does this differ by age at time of infection. Do people in their 20's differ from those in their 40's 50's and even 60's?
Avatar n tn And if so would early symptoms be severe that one would know that there was a problem? I read that symptoms are likely to be severe enough that they require medical attention. 3. Last, is "Hairy" leukoplakia an early or later stage symptom? I read where Dr. Hook states that stages that it occurs years after infection.
Avatar m tn Hello everyone, just so everyone knows I have a post in the Hepatitis B forum as well because my doctor says my symptoms are related to stress and anxiety from freaking myself out for 3 months all day every day thinking I had HIV but im having a hard time believing that my symptoms are related only to stress and anxiety. so heres the post from the hepatitis forum so you can get an idea of where im at.
Avatar m tn As much as I find questions about symptoms to be a complete waste of time and an unnecessary source of anxiety for MedHelp clients, you have approached the issue from a slightly different perspective which is worthy of comment. That is, could ARS symptoms be mistaken for something else. The answer is yes. The symptoms or the ARS are those of a severe, flu-like illness of the sort that most people get every so often. Fevers, muscle and joint aches, and rash are all part of the syndrome.
Avatar n tn is there a good chance i contracted hiv? i feel like i fit the discription of the first symptoms. are these the symptoms? This discussion is related to <a href=''>Please help me, can't eat or sleep</a>.
Avatar n tn // My answer is the same with this one. Symptoms can be tied to fear and/or another disease, but not to HIV given your lack of risk if this is your only concerned exposure.
Avatar n tn You never had a risk of hiv transmission because you used protection and it didn,t fail you.Your symptoms are not hiv related.
Avatar m tn First, no risk for HIV. The symptoms of early HIV are totally non-specific. Thus, while some of the symptoms (muscle aches, fever, not itchy eyes) do overlap with those of acute HIV, the odds that this is acute HIV remain extraordinarily low. As for your symptoms and the decision in the ER to treat, in my clinic we do not treat people without positive tests. On the other hand, in the ER, the doctors would rather over-treat than undertreat.
Avatar f tn Roughly the same time, not weeks apart. They can only be ARS if you actually have hiv. Testing determines this not symptoms. What was your risk and when?
Avatar f tn You don't have HIV, you've never had an exposure.
Avatar n tn If your condom stayed intact, you did the right thing and had safe sex, which is a no risk situation for HIV, symptoms are never a clear indication of HIV to vague and mirror other bugs out there such as flu
Avatar n tn Further, the symptoms you describe occurred before we would expect a person with early HIV to have symptoms. Finally, your persisting symptoms are not a sign of early HIV but occur in persons with HIV either as a medication side effect (and you are not taking medications for HIV) or as a very late complication of the infection, occurring years after a person has become infected.
