acute stage symptoms
May 29, 2003
Does the fact that I've had symptoms during acute infection(specifically swollen lymph nodes, sore throat, mild night sweats, a few rash bumps) suggest that my hiv will progress more quickly than in those who don't have symptoms? Maybe my immune system is weak? Maybe the strain of virus is very strong? Thank You
Response from Dr. Young
There is very little information that suggests that the severity of acute symptoms relates to the risk of having either rapid- or slow disease progression. BY
