Is A Prolonged Fever An Early Sign Of HIV?
Hello, I have had a low-grade fever for 7 days, sometimes I have chills, sometimes the low-grade fever disappears and appears every day, but the mild fever is warm. I also have a burning and tingling sensation on my lips. I had blisters like dry skin but no scabs, now my lips are normal. I am also nauseous but not vomiting, lack of appetite. I don’t have a cold, I don’t have a cough, I don’t have diarrhea, when I sleep it’s a bit itchy on my face, I don’t have a rash. I’m stressed because I’m afraid of the symptoms of HIV, but I read about the symptoms of HIV usually with the flu, I took oral risk a month ago, considering I have bleeding gums. Is this a symptom of HIV or a symptom of herpes because the symptoms are the same?
Fever is associated with many diseases. In HIV, flu-like symptoms occur in 40-90% of people within 2-4 weeks of infection. Symptoms that can appear:
Swollen lymph nodes
These symptoms can last from days to weeks. And not all symptoms are always experienced by someone who has an infection, but it can be some.
Other causes of low-grade fever and chills include:
TB infection other than the lungs, rarely causes coughing. But still often cause symptoms of fever that you feel. Lymphoma is a malignancy in the blood that can cause the symptoms you are experiencing. Hyperthyroidism is a condition of high thyroid hormone which causes an increase in metabolism in the body so that it can cause what you are experiencing.
It's a good idea to check with your doctor. It is necessary to extract a more complete history and direct examination. And laboratory tests can also be done on you later. Without it all, doctors can not determine what you are experiencing.
I hope this helps.
