Difficult to say: It is difficult to say exactly what are the common symptoms in someone with hiv. Some people may have absolutely no symptoms at the time of diagnosis. Typical common symptoms may be very nonspecific, such as fever, weight loss, cough, or rash. As you can tell, these may also represent a typical cold or flu. Thus, the general recommendation is if you are concerned about hiv/aids, get tested.
