Check Out Some Early Symptoms Of HIV, If You Notice Some, See Your Doctor Immediately

In this post, we'd like to share some HIV information with our lovely readers, as well as some early HIV symptoms.

What is HIV and how does it affect you?

The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks cells in our bodies that help us combat infections and diseases. 

HIV is distributed or transmitted by contact with a person's bodily fluids. 

HIV is spread primarily by unprotected gatherings or sharing contaminated equipment. 

HIV is a treatable health condition with no cure. It can only be treated with medicine.

Many HIV-positive people in most developed countries do not develop AIDS because they obey all medical advice and take HIV medication every day as recommended by their doctors.

The following are some of the early signs and symptoms of HIV: 

1: Migraine 

Fever No. 2 

3: Exhaustion 

Swollen Lymph Nodes (number 4) 

5: Throat Infection 

Thrush, no. 6

7: Muscle and joint pain

Note: The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested and know your HIV status. Knowing your HIV status will help you make healthier decisions. 

HIV symptoms appear one to two months after transmission, and it is recommended that if you experience any of these symptoms, you see your doctor right away to confirm your HIV status. 

If HIV is not treated, it can progress to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome), a more serious condition in which the immune system is seriously weakened and susceptible to opportunistic infections.
