Immediately: Any illness is serious with HIV. You are already immunocompromised so it is more difficult to fight the disease. You should be treated with Tamiflu (oseltamivir). It also depends on your CD 4 count.

It varies : It varies from person to person but after the initial primary illness 1-2 months after infection of the virus, it goes into a clinical latent period where you may not have any symptoms for up to 8-10 years. As the virus continues to multiply all those years you may again experience frequent mild infections or chronic signs. With medications it can be many years before full blown AIDS. aids.gov
