HIV / AIDS Facts
Question: How do I know if I am infected with HIV?
The best way is to get tested. General symptoms may include persistent fever, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Other advanced warning signs include (CDC, 2012):
rapid weight loss, dry cough, recurring fever or profuse night sweats, profound and unexplained fatigue, swollen lymph glands in the armpits, groin, or neck, diarrhea that lasts for more than a week, white spots or unusual blemishes on the tongue, in the mouth, or in the throat, pneumonia, red, brown, pink, or purplish blotches on or under the skin or inside the mouth, nose, or eyelids, memory loss, depression, and other neurological disorders
