Recurring symptoms

In the past few years I've been susceptible to some respiratory symptoms. They usually start with heavy sneezing, then followed by a mild fever, and sometimes my nose will be running. This will last maybe 5 days, and I think on average I've had this once or twice a year. There was also one case of where I thought was bronchitis; I had some trouble breathing, and they did an x-ray and said they didn't really see anything. They gave me antibiotics anyway.

Anyway, if I understand correctly, these recurring symptoms would fall in line with AIDS, but not chronic HIV-infection symptoms? I don't think I have AIDS, as I feel generally healthy and I take tenofovir for a chronic heptatis infection I've had since birth (the virus is gone but my doctor wants to keep me on it for a while).

I don,t know what you think your exposure was if you had one at all, but the only way to find out if you have hiv--Aids is to have a test taken.
