lymph nodes
      #196205 - 06/15/06 09:15 PM

When lymph nodes are swollen from HIV, does it typically last longer awhile? i.e more than a day or two of soreness, I am not sure if mine were even swollen.

lymph nodes usually in hiv are genralized meaning in more then 1 lymph node group, and usually they last awhile.

now alot of hiv patients might not have any lymph nodes. so you can diagnose based on that.

a doctor can tell you pretty quickly about your lymph nodes, so i suggest you dont play doctor and visit one for a proper diagnosis.

lymph node swelling is usually occurs when sudden infection happens. also keep in mind that when you keep feeling your nodes they will swell up more and will not go down as fast. leave them alone.

don't self-diagnose yourself. do you even know where all of your lymph nodes are?

many conditions can cause lymph nodal swelling. cold sores, for example, cause swollen lymph nodes and so can allergies. many people with hiv never have swollen lymph nodes throughout the entire course of their infection. the only way to know if you have hiv is to get tested. you cannot rely on any type of symptoms to tell you if you have hiv. you could have a flu for 3 weeks and not have hiv or feel fantastic and be infected.
