HIV Symptoms?

Are post nasal drip, nasal congestion, and throat clearing/itchy throat symptoms of ARS?

We don't speak of symptoms because they are general and non-specific. Please do not come here and ask if this or that is a symptom everytime you have a "new symptom"

Your symptoms are of a cold.

        Yes they are amongst the listed symptoms of ARS but they usually occur along with other measure symptoms like High fever , a skin rash , sometimes diarrhea...

        They can only be indicative and not confirmatory. If you have had a exposure to HIV and have these symptoms you should get a Antibody test @ 3months or later...

I personally think if your symptoms are not additional to fever or rash, then you don't have to worry. Just like VY_Canis_Majoris said: fever, rash and diarrhea are typical, while others are usually additional.
Anyway, you've begun to worry hiv, so a test is best to ease your anxiety.
