Question for a friend thats scared to death
      #271831 - 04/27/13 12:57 PM

i have a question for the experts here.
1) What are the early signs of hiv infection? He has a stuffy nose 3 days after a possible exposure Lasted 1 week (Allergy season here state side) (not sure if there was one he was drunk) He also has a cough when laying down (He is a smoker) I wanted to ask you guys what would ARS look like and what conditions he would see, And when does ARS occur? I have also read 2-4 weeks after exposure. I rather come here to help rather then he go online and get misinformed. Whats the percentage of people that experence ARS i have read 50-90 percent do. Just let me know. Thanks for your help guys!!

Trying to figure out the symptoms of exposures is so misleading . Just about all illnesses , whether it be a flu, cold or as you stated allergies, have the same symptoms. And like you said about the coughing, heis a smoker . Add that to allergies one might thing they got the Bubonic plaque. The best way , if one thinks they had an exposure is to simply get tested in a few months. Otherwise, as with most fearful folks they will keep thinking they are infected . So tell your friend to just go get tested in about 3 months . Then he can put it all to rest.

Look up to the Heavens for the answers to Lifes questions .
