There are no early signs of the HIV infection. However, those who have ever engaged in unprotected sex with multiple partners must get tested for HIV. Some of the early signs of HIV may show up within a month or two after the infection or may even take up to 10 years to appear. We at, The Community, decided to give you a lowdown on some of the major signs and symptoms of HIV infection…

FEVER

One of the earliest symptoms is fever known as Acute Retroviral Syndrome (ARS). Fever is accompanied by other symptoms like tiredness and body pain.

NAUSEA AND VOMITING

A queasy feeling, which cannot be easily treated, may also imply HIV infection.

FATIGUE

Fatigue happens when the virus enters the blood and the immune system is hit. Inflammation due to poor immunity also causes extreme fatigue and can be a sign of HIV infection.

SOAR THROAT AND HEADACHE

Sore throat and headaches are also some of the early signs of HIV infection.

DRY COUGH AND PNEUMONIA

If you cannot treat dry cough with common treatments and if this persistent coughing leads to pneumonia, then it might be a sign of HIV virus.

JOINT PAIN AND MUSCLE PAIN

Lymph nodes form a part of the immune system. When lymph nodes are infected by the HIV virus, they get inflamed and cause pain.

WEIGHT LOSS

Those with HIV generally lose weight rapidly due to the above symptoms.

SKIN RASH

This HIV symptom may appear at an early stage or even at a later stage. If the skin rash cannot be easily treated, then it might be due to HIV virus.

NIGHT SWEATS

Similar to menopausal women, HIV infected individuals also experience night sweats. However, there are many causes to these symptoms and not necessarily these symptoms would specifically mean HIV. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s best to get yourself checked.
