Signs and Symptoms of HIV and AIDS
While the virus itself can sometimes cause people to feel sick, most of the severe symptoms and illnesses of HIV disease come from the opportunistic infections that attack the infected individual’s compromised immune system.
When HIV infection progresses to AIDS, many people begin to suffer from fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, night sweats, and even wasting syndrome at late stages.
Don’t wait until symptoms are discovered late. You are much better off with HIV and AIDS being diagnosed early based on risk factors and exposures. That said, use the knowledge provided of symptoms of HIV and AIDS to prompt evaluation and testing.
