Symptoms Of HIV Disease?
I want to ask. My girlfriend has characteristics almost similar to HIV symptoms. Symptoms such as: frequent dizziness, early in the early evening sweat but not now, it’s hard to sneeze, pain in the left side of the stomach and a rash on the left side of the stomach when held in pain. Is that possibility really hiv? Please explain yes. Thank you
Thank you for the question.
Frequent dizziness, excessive sweating, especially at night, difficulty sneezing, left abdominal pain, and a rash that feels painful in the left abdomen is actually not specifically referring to the symptoms of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). These complaints can also arise due to other causes, such as viral or bacterial infections, dyspepsia (increased gastric acid), allergies, bleeding disorders, infections or urinary tract stones, inflammation of the intestine, malignancy, anemia, immunity disorders, or in women can also arises because of pre menstrual syndrome and other hormonal disorders.
HIV itself, at the beginning of the disease, often does not show typical clinical symptoms. After the virus enters the body, most sufferers will only experience complaints such as ordinary mild aches, for example sore throat, mild fever, coughing colds, joint pain, weakness, and so on. Frequently, this complaint will improve by itself if the patient's immune system is good. Then, if this condition is not detected and treated early, patients can enter into the AIDS phase (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) which causes severe complaints, such as weight loss dramatically, easy infection, fatigue, skin rashes, and even can lead to death.
Distinguishing which symptoms arise due to HIV and which are not actually can be done by going to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. Therefore, you can invite your partner to check to the nearest health facility so that his condition can be examined more deeply. If it is known from an interview that your partner has a history of HIV risk behavior, your doctor may also encourage him to undergo blood tests. But if not, of course other types of checks can be done. In this way, the disease that causes the complaint can be identified properly and handled properly.
Hope this helps ...
