After contracting hiv, do you always have fever like symptoms? What are some other symptoms? And how ofter are there no symptoms at all?

After contracting hiv, do you always have fever like symptoms? What are some other symptoms? And how ofter are there no symptoms at all?

Almost always: Over 90% of patients who contract HIV have symptoms. Fever is probably the most common. Patients also frequently have enlarged lymph nodes (swollen glands), sore throat, rash, tiny sores in their mouth or throat, or genital area, headache, muscle and joint pains, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and weight loss. If you are worried, get tested! ...Read more

Are hiv symptoms possible just four days after possible exposure . And just last for just 1 day? Symptoms were vomiting , fever , diarrhoea. Thankyou

Not possible: Acute HIV symptoms cannot start sooner than 7-10 days after exposure and never would clear up in under 1-2 weeks. Sounds like you had a garden variety viral gastroenteritis like norovirus. If your partner 4 days earlier had it or was a carrier, you could have caught it from him or her. But for sure this isn't HIV or any other standard STD. ...Read more

Can i experience HIV symptoms a month after contact? Is fever & night sweating always part of the symptoms?

Can i experience HIV symptoms a month after contact? Is fever & night sweating always part of the symptoms?

Maybe: Hiv disease is like a chameleon. It can present with a wide variety of symptoms on acute presentation, or none at all. Fever and night sweats should be a reason to seek medical attention, but this may not be HIV disease. If you feel you may have been exposed, please go and get tested. ...Read more

Can hiv symptoms, such as night sweats and mild fever appear after one day post possible exposure? and when antibody tests can detect it?

Can hiv symptoms, such as night sweats and mild fever appear after one day post possible exposure? and when antibody tests can detect it?

See below: It is very unlikely HIV would cause symptoms the day after exposure. Antibody test may be positive as soon as 3 weeks after exposure, but a negative result does not rule infection as it may rarely take a year for antibody test to be positive, HIV nucleic acid test, if negative at 4 months after exposure would essentially rule out HIV. ...Read more

I have always fever in my body from 8 mon. All my  symptoms strted after sex unknown girl.. Is this due to HIV? But I had test HIV PCR RNA 15 wk neg

Hard to say: There are at least a dozen infections that can pass during sexual contact. This includes well known types like syphilis to less known types that include many forms of hepatitis. A negative PCR for HIV suggests your problem is something else. It may or may not be related to this sexual contact.Share your thoughts with your doc and have a full assessment done. ...Read more

Can a primary HIV rash occure as 3-4 pimples on the back, without fever or other symptoms? Thank you

Can a primary HIV rash occure as 3-4 pimples on the back, without fever or other symptoms? Thank you

Probably not: The rash with HIV tends to be red and flat or a bit raised. People have other flu like symptoms as well. Pimples are probably just pimples. If lots more emerge on only one side of the body in a strip this could be shingles. If the same cluster always comes back in the same place, this could be an unusual location for herpes simplex. ...Read more

I know HIV symptoms vary from person to person.But if there is fever+Flu+swollen Lymph node and if it is related to HIV then do rashes also come?

Rash and HIV: Certainly HIV disease can give you a fever and enlarged lymph nodes AND A FEVER. But so do many other diseases, many of them benign viral diseases. Instead of worrying and guessing, better to go see the doctor and get tested. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Plz praying you anybdy can help, 6 mon continious low grade fever, gen lymphnodes, sore thrt these symptoms strted after sex with unknwn, 105 day HIV antibdy neg. what other can cause continious symp?

Fever: You obviously need to see a doctor and begin an organized workup. The possible causes would fill an encyclopedia. If it is related to the sex I would look at Epstein-Barr, cytomegalo virus, hepatitis B/C, chlamydia infection of the prostate. herpes, tuberculosis. If foreign travel, malaria. ...Read more

Depends...: If any of you did not have sex with a person with HIV....shared IV needle,........should not try to diagnose AIDs/HIV. There are multiple other possibilities.....Lymphoma is one of them, MONO is more relevant since both are involved. ...Read more

Chronic fever, thrush for 5 months these were started 1 week after sex with unknown , hiv, STD all neg; what can causes these symptoms?plz advise ?

See ID doctor: This sounds as if there is compromise of the immune system. Don't know how you were tested and when, in relation to your symptoms. This complex picture is the provenance of an infectious diseases specialist, and if we knew where you lived it might be possible to recommend one or more. Call your local medical society or hospital and ask for an ID doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
