Get an HIV test: The best way to know if you have hiv, the virus that causes aids, is by getting an HIV blood test. While symptoms such as having a flu-like illness may be suggestive of hiv, it is very nonspecific, meaning that it could be just the flu or other types of infections. There is no one symptom that is absolutely suggestive of HIV infection. This is why we recommend that people get tested if concerned.
