Acute HIV: Acute HIV symptoms occur soon after exposure to HIV and include "flu like symptoms" such as fever, swollen lymph nodes, sore throat, rash, muscle pain, malaise, mouth/esophageal sores. These symptoms last for a few weeks, and then patients largely do not have any symptoms. If you think you could have hiv, get tested.
