What are the key indicator symptoms?

What symptoms that usually indicate that it is probably primary infection caused by the onset of hiv?
-swollen glands/ nausea / vomiting / thrush / weight loss / rash / headache / tingling in extremeties / ect, which ones?
If symptoms happen within a day or two instead of the general two/ four weeks after onset of symptoms.
Does that indicated the person will detereorate faster than someone who takes 2/4 weeks before an immune response sets in?

Fever seems to be a key indicator for some, is this correct? I know nobody wants to get into symptoms as they are poor indicators of infection.
