could severe back pains be a symptoms of hiv and if so how long they would last? Because I have had a long lasting back and neck/shouldder pain as well as concentrating problems. What could be the most common symtoms after the first ones (meaning sore throath, feaver, swollen lymph nodes etc.)? Please help!
I'm looking forward for your answer!

Back pain, and neck and shoulder pain are not common symptoms from HIV. If you have had unsafe sex or another risky behavior, go and get tested!
