Can Hiv Start With Just Muscle Aches As The Only Symptom
Unlikely, but...: Hiv infection can occur with a variety of nonspecific symptoms, such as fevers, sweats, weight loss, fatigue, headaches, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, diarrhea, rash, and also muscle aches. These symptoms also are similar to a cold or a flu. Thus, the only way to know if you are hiv-infected is to get tested for hiv.See 1 more doctor answer
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more

Tested neg. After 8 week exsposer to HIV. Symptoms are muscle aches & swollen glands. Is it still possible for HIV? What else could it be? Plz help
Seroconversion: Seroconversion can take up to 6 months, so a negative test at 8 weeks post-exposure is no guarantee that you do not have HIV. I hope you were able to receive appropriate post-exposure chemoprophylaxis. Muscle aches and swollen glands are vague symptoms that could be caused by a number of different viral infections, or could be an early sign of acute HIV infection. Please see Dr. For more tests.
So is the muscle ache and joint pains symptoms in the late HIV stage or in aids? And what do people with aids look like?
Why do you ask?: You'll be an adult in a few years and you need to familiarize yourself with HIV. If you have only achey muscles and are not obviously sick, you do not have late HIV / AIDS, period. This would be a great time to talk with an informed adult (maybe even Dad) about loving safely, and to get your first HIV screen from your personal physician -- something most young adults should get yearly.
Hot for 1 day, itchy scalp rash for 3-4 weeks, and random muscle aches for 7 weeks now. All symptoms at different times, does it sound like ars hiv?
No: No it does not but those symptoms are nonspecific. See a doctor and have them evaluated if you are concerned.
The condom broke for 1 second 7 days ago, I had anal cut. Now I have mild fever, muscle ache, running nose and tired. Could they be symptoms of HIV?
Ill since December. Read that symptoms resemble HIV. 6 combo tests, HIV2 PCR, CD4+ over 6 months+specialists insist that is not the case. Lump feeling in throat when turning left and swallowing. Spots/rash on body+itchy in groin, muscle ache, thrush etc?
HIV?: HIV is the great imitator as can affect so many things. But tests negative means it is not HIV.
None: Muscle ache is too non-specific a symptoms to be consistent with any diagnosis. If you suspect that you may have HIV, get a HIV nucleic acid test and if the result is negative, repeat it in 6 months. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
-ve HIV 4th generation 3 times after 7 months of exposure, still night sweats, muscle ache, many swollen nodes in neck, sore throat, help what to do?
I have muscle ache, night sweats, 3 swollen lymph nodes in neck but tested negative HIV after 7 months, Do I need more tests?
Yes: Because you likely have something else besides HIV. If these symptoms have been present for just a few days, you may just have a cold. If these symptoms have been present for more than 2 weeks, infection is the likely answer.
Could be many things: The more important question is whether you are at risk of HIV infection. HIV risk comes from sharing needles, sex without a protective barrier, or other exposure to blood or body fluids. HIV can present with muscle aches. Usually there is also fever. But muscle soreness can be lots of different things. If you think you might have been exposed to HIV, go get tested.
No more fever or vomiting anymore and still some dizziness but a new symptom has appeared which is bad muscle aches. What could this be?
For the past three days I have run a low grade fever (99.8-100.0) in the afternoon with muscle aches and fatigue. Otherwise symptom free. What gives?
Itchy Scalp rash for 2-3 weeks, ongoing muscle & joint aches on and off for 50 days now, symptoms not together. Is it ars hiv? 97 days post hetro sex.
Still have mucus in throat and dizziness but no more fever or vomiting. New symptom is bad muscle aches. What could this be?
Viral: This sounds like a viral syndrome. You started with upper respiratory symptoms including mucous drainage and systemic symptoms like fever. Now as you recover, you are experiencing achiness and fatigue. This is classic for a viral syndrome. Get plenty of fluids and plenty of rest. You should make a full recovery. If symptoms worsen or new symptoms appear, you will need to consult with your doctor.
Reasons for muscle aches in different areas of the body on and off for 7 weeks now? Can anxiety symptoms persist so long after anxiety has passed?
See your doctor soon: There may be other reasons why your muscles are aching on it off. You may need to have your general health checked, including your thyroid, including your G.I. health, make sure your nutrition is sound, and that you don't have other things causing this. You may need blood work done.
My right calf muscle aches, it doesn't feel normal. Its/off. Its not pain it just feels weird kind of like numbness. No other symptoms. Help?
Have it checked out: Calf muscle ache by itself is not a problem if it's just from a spasm, but when it involves a numbing sensation, like a paresthesia, or feeling weird, it needs to be checked out, so the cause can be determined. Your medical, family, social, trauma histories will help. So, make an appointment with you doctor to do so, and get peace of mind.
