ARS symptoms can vary. Some people get really bad symptoms. Some people never even have symptoms. That is why you should never worrie about symptoms. You have to go by testing results. If you think you had an HIV risk get tested at your 3 month mark.

High fevers are the most common ARS symptom.However,because not all people infected will present with ARS symptoms,testing is the only way to know your status.
