HIV: Many people never have symptoms of acute HIV infection which most often presents similar to mononucleosis and may last 4-6 wks on average. Subsequent symptoms may occur years later and are due to the infections and tumors due to immunosuppression by hiv. It cannot yet be cured, but is quite manageable with medications. If you have been exposed please go and be tested, earlier the better.

HIV infection: Most people do not feel their HIV infection. There are some who do get a viral illness like the worst flu of their lives when they get infected, but these symptoms do not last long. Hiv can be managed, but not cured.
