I'm 26 year old heterosexual and I was wondering if cold symptoms are considered as hiv ARS hiv symptoms? I have nasal congestion, minor sore throat.

Hmmm.... It has to be viewed from the other direction. Because every person on Earth gets cold symptoms, one does not consider cold symptoms a sign of some other, bigger disorder. Likewise, everyone sneezes at least once a week. So, don't think of a weekly sneeze as a sign of a bigger disorder. Worry only if there are unique signs of a bigger disorder, not signs that everybody has.
