ARS symptoms come 2-3 weeks after infection and they stay for 1 or 2 weeks only.

Hi,

Symptoms don't tell teh whole story..I had headache for 5 weeks, sore throat for one week plus other random stuff.

Test at 3 months for final result.

Regards and good luck,

Not without a dozen other symptoms to go along with it. ARS is diagnosed after one has tested positive, not before. Which you already know, when it comes to symptoms they don't mean a thing in diagnosing HIV. By the way, what was your exposure? I don't see where you mentioned it?
