can acute hiv symptoms come in phases?

14 days after exposure ->  dizziness

30 days after exposure -> Fever

60 after exposure -> Rash

can symptoms come in phases or they should be present all together?
i know symptoms are not a way to determine if HIV positive. but it will sure give me some peace of mind until 90 days window to go testing

incident was protected sex with prostitute but too drunk to remember if there was a condom failure.

thanks for the replies!

No, TRUE ARS symptoms present all togther at one time, not staggered.

99% of the people in a study coming to the ER with suspected ARS symptoms were HIV negative, with their "symptoms" being attributed to something else entirely.

Your sex was protected, therefore you had no HIV risk.  Even in an intoxicated state, I would highly doubt you wouldn't be aware of a condom failure.  They are VERY obvious.

Testing would not be indicated in this instance.

thank u, thank u, thank u!
i'm having chicken pox type bumps in scalp, chest, face, back and just notice in my penis 62 days after sexual encounter. fever and body aches preceded the rash for about a day. i was so scared it could be linked to my sexual encounter...
i will go to a doctor for a non std treatment on monday....perhaps a dermathologist.
thanks again for your quick reply.
regards,

You never had an exposure so the answer for you is no.

hi,
what if condom broke.  from what i remember she took it off and i dind't check... it's just that i never get sick, and all of the sudden i get this rash with swollen lymph nodes in neck, and some fever..after having sex with a prostitute...

can chicken pox rash easily differentiate from acute hiv rash? i what ways?
thanks

There are no what ifs. Had the condom failed you would have known without a doubt. See your doctor if you are concerned with your health it has nothing to do with HIV.

hi,
i know i've been told categorically that protected sex = no risk.
well i have develop a chicken pox type rash, its in my chest, back, face, neck and scalp mostly.  it doesn't itch and 6 days into it, its not crusting over.
im freeking out because this is typical of a type of HIV rash also.
what are your thoughts?  it happened 63 days after what i think is exposure?
would you recommend to test given the chain of events? or is it still condom sex = no risk?
