How to Know About HIV and AIDS at an Early Stage

Just seeing the symptoms you can’t judge that the person has HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) or not. So it’s better to diagnose it at an early stage. Based on the phases of the disease they are in, different people indicate different symptoms. Some of the most common signs of HIV and AIDS are as follows:

Early Stage

People infected with HIV virus for 9-10 weeks might have a mild flu. They will not fall critically ill but will have delicate HIV Infection. More indications are fatigue, night sweats, muscle aches, rash and fever, sore throat and many more like this. If you have these symptoms, it’s better to get diagnosed by a doctor.

Latency Stage

If you ignore the early period, then you will move to the next step which is Chronic HIV or Clinical Latency Stage. Here the production level of the virus is very slow. If you left this phase untreated for 10 years or more, you will move to the final step which is incurable. In some people it spreads more rapidly. If you are on treatment of ART (Antiretroviral Therapy), they you can’t transmit this disease to others.

Final Stage: AIDS

If you don’t treat the virus of HIV and don’t take proper medicine, then your immune system will get weaker which will lead to the last step of the disease which is AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). Some of the checklists to look for, if you have AIDS are:

Fever

Diarrhea

Anal, mouth or genital sores

Memory loss and depression

Weight loss and fatigue

Pneumonia

Just keep in mind that the above symptoms may not necessarily indicate HIV. It may be some other common disease also. Thus it’s always better to be sure than sorry. Sometimes we have natural weak immune system but that doesn’t mean that you have HIV or AIDS. Just visit a doctor and get checked yourself thoroughly to clear all the doubts in your mind.
