Can regular pain relievers like Tylenol, (acetaminophen) ibuprofen, suppress a head ache caused by acute HIV?

In brief: Probably

There are no clinical trials addressing this specific question.
It's likely that those drugs will reduce headache of acute HIV just as they reduce headache from many other causes. The response to the pain pill, however, CANNOT be used to diagnose what the CAUSE of a headache is.
