How can you tell

How can you tell if you have HIV or Aids?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

If the damage to your immune system is mild, then you cannot tell unless you take an HIV test. If your immune system has already sustained significant damage, then you will begin to develop infections and other conditions that are termed "opportunistic" because they take advantage of a weakened immune system.
