Although HIV Ars sympts are non-specific, in general - can the onset be with acute joint pains and manifest on mild flu like symptoms. How common is loss of appetite and weight loss. Can you pls explain what is the nature of fever one would experience since fever is one of most common symptom. Will it be high, moderate or low temp. Continuos or intemittent. How many days typically does it last? What is the nature of HIV rashes. do they appear on the back. Do they leave behind tiny bumps making the surface rough? Your reply on this will be extremely appreciated. Thanks.
