ARS Symptoms
      #66851 - 07/02/03 07:33 PM

After doing some research into ARS symptoms there seems to be some common ground. First of all, temperature and fatigue seem to be universally present. Very specific studies have found that almost 100% of people going through true ARS will have these two symptoms. Think of HIV as the most wicked virus you've ever had. Secondly, what makes ARS SPECIFIC and will give a physician a red flag (as opposed to the flu/mono) are fever blisters in the mouth and a rash across the chest/body. If you have the flu/mono, you WILL NOT GET A CLUSTER OF BLISTERS OR A HUGE RED RASH.

Fever and fatigue are very common, while mouth blisters and a red rash are very specific.

Mouth blisters and red rash are NOT specific to ARS. Both those conditions have been around much longer than HIV and looking at OTC medications on the drug store shelves it seems quite a few people deal with these two things.

There are NO symptoms that are specific to ARS. That's why people are constantly told not to try and diagnosis themselves by symptoms. Only a test can tell you for sure.

You are correct, nothing is specific to HIV acute infection. However, a person with the flu is NOT going to have a cluster of several fever blisters in their mouth and they ARE NOT going to have a red blotchy rash going across their body. But thats not to say they don't have something else. But those two signs along with fever and fatigue and a recent risky sexual experience are going to alert a physician to do an HIV test.

What about a sore throat that has lasted about 3 weeks and fatigue that has lasted about 5, no fever or rash though. Possibly HIV???

I get a red rash on my body anytime I get sick. It has happened to me since I was a child. I also get a red rash when I take asprin. And yes, people can get rashes when they have mono, espeicially if they're running a fever. A red rash doesn't mean anything.
