Warning Signs You May Be Infected With HIV
#1 HIV Signs
40 to 90% of people who’ve been infected with HIV experience flu like symptoms after they’ve contracted HIV, while others do not show symptoms for years or DECADES! But we’re not here to scare you, just inform you of signs you should look for when determining if you should visit your doctor!
Fatigue and fever are the most common signs you might have been exposed to the virus, however it can show up at both the beginning and later stages! Look out for sore throats, swollen lymph organs and joint weakness.
“It’s a very common fungus and the one that causes yeast infections in women,” Dr. Malvestutto says. “They tend to appear in the mouth or esophagus, making it difficult to swallow.”
If you rarely ever get skin rashes but they’ve randomly begin to surface on your body…you should see immediately visit your doctor.
30 to 60% of those infected will experience short-term nausea, diarrhea or vomiting. You will also begin to notice your weight fluctuating, ultimately getting lower and lower.
Never discredit a dry cough, it can be just as big of a sign as any other symptom. Many will think it’s allergies, when it’s actually a sign for patients with severely ill HIV patients.
Night sweats occur in the early stages of contracting the virus, and occur despite the room temperature or if you currently have a cold.
