No signs or symptoms can diagnose an HIV infection; only an HIV test can. With that being said, the appearance of certain symptoms can sometimes hint that an infection has taken place, particularly if you believe that you’ve been exposed to HIV or have simply put off getting yourself tested.

    Symptoms

    Symptoms vary depending on the stage of infection.

    Stage 1 – Acute HIV infection: 1–2 weeks after infection, present with non-specific symptoms such as low grade fever, headache, malaise, rash, and lymphadenopathy

    • Low grade fever
    • Headache
    • Malaise
    • Rash
    • Lymphadenopathy – swollen or abnormal lymph nodes

    Stage 2 – Asymptomatic infection: this stage does not show any symptoms. The infection remains controlled until the immune system becomes so compromised that Stage 3 begins.

    Stage 3 – Symptomatic infection: Years of viral activity cause damage to the immune system. Symptoms include:

    • Fatigue
    • Fever
    • Malaise
    • Weight loss
    • Chronic diarrhea
    • Swollen lymph glands, mainly on the neck
    • Muscle aches and joint pain
    • Sore throat
    • Skin rashes and bumps
    • Headache
    • Soaking night sweats
    • White spots or unusual lesions on tongue or in mouth

    Stage 4 or AIDS: Due to severe damage to the immune system, major opportunistic infections and cancers may develop.
