Many people who are HIV positive do not have symptoms of HIV infection. The virus can sometimes cause people to feel sick, but most of the severe symptoms and illnesses of HIV come from the opportunistic infections that attack the damaged immune system. It is also important to recognize that some symptoms of HIV are similar to common illnesses, such as the flu or respiratory infections.
Signs and symptoms commonly seen in the early stages of HIV include:
- Night sweats
- Muscle aches
- Sore throat
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Ulcers in the mouth
Infected individuals can have the virus for up to 10 years—sometimes longer—without showing signs or symptoms.
