does pcp manifest itself like allergies? I am having some trouble with what I think are allergies. They come and go but i dont think its normal.. i have never felt this before.. It also happens mostly at night time. Anyone have PCP ??? what have been your symptoms and how far along were u in the window period??? That is if you were in the window period... if you had it post poz diagnosis, please let me know what your symptoms were as well.

i think it takes over 5 years for pcp to develope and when it does you will have a fever and dry cough as a symptom

Pcp can develope if you have a weakened immune system(t-cell count less then 200) Usually from point of infection to a low t-cell count can take 8-10 years without meds. I had PCP and no where in there did I have a dry cough. I was not able to breath to even cough. As in anything everyones symptoms vary. PCP is not something you want to try and diagnose yourself. If you are poz go get tested.
