SYMPTOMS FOR 2.5 months?

Nov 4, 2003

Would HIV seroconversion cause me to have a sore throat for 2.5 months, and also have post nasal drip, runny, stuffy nose andsneezing, is it possible that I could be getting a series of colds back to back?

Thank you

Response from Dr. Horwath

HIV seroconversion is sometimes accompanied by a viral syndrome, consisting of fever, muscle aches, and a flu-like syndrome. This is usually self-limited and resolves in 1-2 weeks.

If you are concerned about seroconversion, you should get an HIV test now, and take appropriate precautions to prevent exposure in the future.
