S usually occurs 2 to 4 weeks after infection. ARS symptoms may last from a few days to 2 weeks, and then subside. One thing to remember, there are no symptoms specific to HIV. Every symptom that can be reported as ARS also has hundreds of other things associated with it.

Since you tested negative at 37 weeks (9 months) your negative is conclusive. 3 months is considered conclusive. It's also the time of year for colds flu and other yucky stuff. I's day it's not ARS.

Good Luck

Hey, I understand your concern and fear, but you had a negative test result at 9 months, and 3 months is considered conclusive.

The two people that I have talked to that had ARS reported it as the flu from hell. They were not able to get out of bed, not even to got the bathroom, let alone use the the computer. What your reporting for the flu the fever, shakes and all sounds typical for a bad flu, but not what I have heard reported for ARS. One of the two people I talked to with it had to be rushed to the hospital it was so bad.

I had a horrible flu like that a few years ago in college. It lasted for over 2 weeks, and I skipped most of my classes during that time. I just stayed in bed almost the entire day. I had chills, high fever, body aches all over, coughing, the whole deal. It went away though, and I was fine. The same sickness got me 4 years later and lasted for 3 whole weeks. But I got over it. You've tested out to 37 weeks, more than 9 months. HIV isn't what's made you sick. Be happy about that.

hello,
i want to thank the posters that answered me today.
i went to the dr today and as you all said ..... i have the flu - not ARS.
being negative at 37 weeks means i'm negative and this is the flu.
i guess i am just another worried well but this has put perspective into my thinking and over-reacting.
thanks for answering me and not poking fun at my stupidity.
i appreciate it very much.
