Night Sweats Question ARS
      #254245 - 02/06/11 11:22 AM

I'm wondering if anyone with HIV who's been through it can answer this question. I've read that ARS night sweats are almost always accompanied by fever. I've had no fever. What were your experiences? How profuse a sweat, was fever present.

Thanks in advance.

I don't fit in the "Have HIV and been through it" category, but I am also in the middle of a scare and thought I'd speak up to possibly offer you some encouragment. I have also had night sweats off and on and from everything I've been able to tell, it's not something to worry too much about. Night sweats are actually pretty uncommon symptoms and are normally complications of ADVANCED hiv, and when not accompanied by fever or hot flashes are usually stress-induced. I am convinced at this point that my intermittent night sweats are the result of all my anxiety. Hope this helps.

Keep your chin up, you're not alone in your fears.

I've been having fevers and night sweats for several weeks, along with heavy fatigue. That is what got me in to test again after two negative results earlier last year, at one month and three months after a suspected exposure. It came back positive. I look healthy, VL=60,883 CD4=403 I will start meds soon after getting my genotyping stuff back. I think everyone reacts differently to the virus. I have RA, so my body is already "odd" due to the autoimmune issues.
