ARS length
      #21921 - 09/05/01 03:55 PM

I am a little bit confused and scary about what I read in the previous posts. I thought that the ARS length was 2 days to 2 weeks. I just read that it could be up to 6 weeks. Can anybody tell me what the real length is ?

Not to scare you, but I've read that it can last up to 3 months. I've read a lot on this(esp lately) and 2 days to 2 weeks time frame is pretty accurate. Like everything else about this horrible disease, no one can say for sure, but for the vast majority it is true. For a very, very small minority, it can be longer though my understanding is that symptons become quite mild when it does go for so long. Don't be scared because you read this. I take this longer thing like I do the time when you can get ARS. Technically, it can be anywhere in the 12 week window period, but really it's almost always between 2-6 weeks. So, don't be scared about this and if you need some reassurance that you're not in the scenario, tell us and we'll help.
