Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms webmd


Avatar n tn If one gets symptoms they are 2-4 weeks after infection, but a lot of people don't get symptoms and you can never try to use symptoms as a diagnosis or indication because ARS symptoms are too general.
Avatar n tn I notice that I was VERY tired, had a mild head ache and my tongue was white. Shaken from what I read on Webmd, that HIV fit all of those symptoms, I started to visit my dr a lot more often. She gave me a fuul blood test, which all came out perfect, except my belly ruben was a bit high, and that was after seven months.
Avatar m tn And the simple answer is HIV doesn't have any specific symptoms and symptoms are in no way reliable in diagnosing HIV. Now take the cap lock off when posting on the forum.
Avatar n tn None of my roommates contracted the mites, despite it being nearly 3 whole months before I took any action. Strange? I worry of HIV infection due to other existing symptoms--well aware that symptoms do not declare HIV, only testing, which I plan to do--but I need some coaching from a forum like this. I always used protection.
Avatar f tn scheduled on March 5th for HIV testing,which will make it 31 days.Anyone have any opinions on my symptoms?
Avatar m tn She doesn't necessarily have HIV if she has chlamydia. Did she go and get tested for HIV? Just get tested at the 4,6,8,12 week mark. Also, dont keep looking for symptoms on the internet it will just add to your anxiety and stress. I have been in the same boat before and this will only drive you crazy. Its your anxiety and stress giving you insomnia. Try and keep yourself busy bro and keep a social life. This thing will keep lurking in your head and make you feel like ****.
Avatar m tn Recently, my significant other was diagnosed with congested heart failure. I read on WebMd that HIV infection could be a cause of CHF! Is it possible that the insurance company would not have advised me that I tested positive for HIV, since they could use my abnormal psa results as the reason for denial? I mean, since my psa was abnormal and if the HIV test was positive, they really only need one bad reason to deny me coverage.
Avatar f tn No. Acute HIV symptoms involving swollen lymph nodes would not present as an isolated inflamed node. There is absolutely NO reason to be scared of testing. Most likely, you're just putting off the relief of getting a negative result. A DUO test (antibody and antigen) would be definitive at this point for you. Quit putting it off, and go get tested!
Avatar f tn Hook along with my test results reassured me that I did not have HIV. However, symptoms have continued, low energy, fatigue, skin tingling, (In addition to previously posted symptoms) and now shingle like rash on my lower left abdomen (right below rib cage). Initially started as pain in right abdomen that moved to left abdomen. About 5 days ago a quarter size bruise appeared, accompanied by numbness.
Avatar m tn Stay away from the HIV related websites.
Avatar n tn I recently thought that I had HIV but my risks are extremely low and I had to realize that it was anxiety and not HIV. But I think that you should talk to your doctor and ask him/her what the symptoms of HIV are. Once you know what the symptoms are you can assess your risk and your probability of having the disease? Also I don't recommend looking for health information on the internet(I don't mean sites like these/this site is great!) like at the mayo clinic or webmd.

Avatar f tn I have been searching for answers for over 20 years and had the same issues as you with blood tests coming back negative but living with a host of autoimmune symptoms. I share most of your symptoms and have seen too many Dr's and specialists to mention, autoimmune disorders are frustrating to say the least!! As others have said, it seems once you have an autoimmune condition you are prone to getting others so the searching and the myriad of symptoms just never seem to end.
Avatar f tn Because I've looked around everywhere and there's alot of symptoms that looked like mine I looked at webmd,yahoo,aid.
Avatar n tn Looking at webmd and other health sites, I've noticed that my symptoms are all symptoms of hiv exposure - should I be worried?
1390055 tn?1365618655 My tests confirmed that the symptoms were not from HIV, nor were they from any sexually transmitted diseases. It was just a flu bug going around. All of the tests were negative. Finally, if you have read my previous post, you already know what I'm going to say, but I'm saving this most important for last. In May of this year, I had been suffering from pelvic region pain, and my penis was in pain. I kept googling symptoms and researching them like crazy. I ran into herpes.
Avatar n tn Does ars symptoms have anything to do with when you test positive?Ive read that you will test positive within one to two weeks of onset of ars.My symptoms came at 28 days so that means i couldnt have tested positive at 31 days?
Avatar m tn I then noticed that my tongue had a yellow coating (no sores). Looking at WebMD the symptoms looked as though they could be acute HIV. I took a blood HIV-1 antibody test on 2/15, which came back negative. I just got the results back from another blood HIV-1 antibody test that I took on 3/20 and the results were negative.
Avatar n tn Thanks Teak. You do agree in my case though there is no risk and test not needed?

Avatar f tn It doesn't matter if you have textbook HIV symptoms (which you don't), you did not have a risk, therefore can NOT have HIV. That would be like a virgin worrying about being pregnant. I strongly urge you to seek professional help, you are spiraling out of control. There is NO more we can do for you, we've told you countless times you had ZERO risk. If you cannot accept that, get some help. This is an HIV forum, and you don't have an HIV concern. Please move on.
Avatar n tn Never trust symptoms because EVERY symptom caused by HIV is caused by hundreds of other things way way way more common than HIV. If you haven't had a fever of 101+ that doesn't go away for a week or two then you are probably not experiencing ARS. The fever is present in 96% of people that have the Acute Retroviral Syndrome. Remember, it is the cold/flu season and you were never at any significant risk to begin with, plus you had a test that is 90-94,95% accurate.
Avatar n tn OK - here's my story: June 06 - VERY brief protected vagial sex with So. American sex worker while on business. Never before, never again. Regret and grief is beyond words. however... I immediately fell ill right afterword with flu-like/cold-like symptoms on flight back to US. Been pretty much sick off and on since then - and worried.
Avatar m tn Nor will more information about your partner or your symptoms. The symptoms of early HIV do not begin within days of exposure- typically symptoms, if they are going to occur at 2-3 weeks. In your case, any symptoms you develop will not be related to HIV because your exposure was virtually no risk. On the other hand, it appears that your anxiety is out of control an that is what you need to attend to, not your non-existant risk of having gotten HIV.

Avatar m tn (12 Days after exposure) Because of these symptoms, I am petrified that I have contracted HIV from this encounter. Therefore, I have taken a full STD test today (13 days after exposure) in order to clear my head. The doctor said if HIV comes back, it is very unlikely that I have it, but just in case I better be tested in 6 months after exposure. I should be getting the results in 3-4 days and my second Gonorrhea/Chlamydia test tomorrow.
Avatar m tn You can try to go on to webmd for certain info. Do not self medicate. Symptoms show at 2-5 days.
Avatar n tn They were only slightly larger than normal, painless, could move, although they did limit the movement of my neck slightly. Now, I had similar symptoms about a month or so beforehand in late April, mostly the stiff neck from swollen glands, sore throat, fatigue, and a headache. Eventually all the lymph nodes went away for the most part (except for this one that took a while, though I attribute that to my constant poking at it..
Avatar m tn I keep reading about all the early symptoms on WEBMD and I am making myself physically ill. I have been so scared that I don't sleep. I am also nauseous but not throwing up. I do not have fever but I feel like I have neck and slight throat discomfort. No rashes anywhere. I have no signs of genital rash other than an ingrown hair. I am going to get tested on November 14 but I need some sanity before I do. Hypochondriac much?
