Fatigue /night sweats
Jul 20, 1999

Could a person have night sweats and fatigue less than 6 days after HIV infection?

Response from Mr. Molaghan

Hello As many as 70% of people infected with HIV experience symptoms of acute infection such as fever, fatigue, night sweats chills and rash. These symptoms usually occur about 4-6 weeks after infection, and can be mild to severe. Six days is a bit short, but many other viruses such as flu like illness or bacterial infections can cause sweats and fatigue. The only true way to determine HV infection is through a blood test.
