Is it possible to have the HIV virus and not show symptoms for 2 or more years. My only questionable exposure was two and a half years ago and I have recently come down with a fever, muscle aches and weakness, with a lack of a sore throat. I appreciate you answering my question.

It is extremely unlikely that your symptoms are related to HIV infection. The vast majority of people exposed to HIV become antibody test positive within 6 months of exposure. BY
