Early HIV symptoms question

If someone is exposed to HIV would they have symptoms 4 months after exposure??

I've heard about ARS a couple weeks after exposure but then that goes away right after a couple days or weeks?  

So I guess my question is- is it common or capable to have symptoms 4 months after exposure that have been on going for 2 months now?

No, that is not common.  ARS usually starts within the first month and doesn't last longer than a few weeks.
If you get tested now you will get an accurate result.

The Acute HIV infection symptoms usually occur the 2nd and 4th week post exposure!so from my general knowledge NO I don't think so!

So after ARS symptoms there shouldn't be any other symptoms like diahrrea, muscle weakness, tingling or anything like that??
