HIV symptoms

I keep reading that you may or not have sympotoms, how true is this?

how many people show symptoms?

if they show symptoms how bad are they and how long do they last?

why do most people get tested?

is there any reason why someone wouldnt show symptoms?

1.YES 2.Between 40 to 70% of people will have ARS symptoms .3.It depends on the person and their immune response as to how bad symptoms can be./they last between 4 days and 2 weeks. 4.Because they had a risk or think they did. 5.Yes,strong immune system or LTNP.
