There are no early signs of the HIV infection and those who engage in unsafe sex with several partners should get tested for HIV.

The premature signs of HIV may show after a month or may appear after 10 years. These are some of the main signs and symptoms experienced by HIV infected patients.

Fever: One of the first symptoms is fever known as Acute Retroviral Syndrome (ARS). Fever is generally accompanied with other symptoms like tiredness and body pain.
Fatigue: When the virus enters the blood, the immune system is hit. Also, inflammation due to poor immunity causes exhaustion.


Joint pain and muscle pain: Lymph nodes form part of the immune system, when it is infected by HIV virus, the lymph nodes get swollen.

Sore throat and headaches are beginning signs of HIV.

Skin rash: This HIV symptom can emerge at an early stage or later stage. If the skin rash is not simply treated then it could be due to the HIV virus.

Nausea and vomiting: This queasy feeling which is not easily treated could entail HIV infection.

Weight loss: Those with HIV usually lose weight quickly due to the above symptoms.

Dry cough and pneumonia: If you cannot treat dry cough with common treatments and this relentless coughing can lead to pneumonia, then it is a sign of the HIV virus.

Night sweats: Analogous to menopausal women, HIV infected individuals also experience night sweats.
