ARS is diagnosed after a person tests and is confirmed positive.

Painful lymph nodes are not a symptom of ARS or HIV.

According to this site, swollen lymph nodes are one of the most common sign of HIV & ARS.

You stated "painful" and I told you  "painful" lymph nodes are not symptoms of ARS or HIV.

Sorry about that. Okay I understood what you meant.
What about other symptoms? Are they possible at week 5th? (32-35rd day)

We don't discuss symptoms because HIV doesn't have any specific symptoms.

But if so, why there's something we called "ARS" ?

Of course I know, my question wasn't "Am I pos or neg?" There's nothing that you can say about anyone's situation with symptoms of course.
My question was, what's the period of "ARS"?
Let me say you my symptoms i have experienced.
-Nausea (I have never experienced this kind of an nausea before, it was TERRIBLE)
-Diarrhea
-Headache
-Muscle Pain (Neck)
And now, at 5th week, headache, nausea again and lymph nodes.

Those are the same symptoms of over 1000 other illnesses and diseases. As I told you ARS is not diagnosed until after one tests and is confirmed positive. That is the only time that you can say that a person symptoms were ARS.

Okay thank you. One more question too, what about oral sex? Both receiving and giving? (I remember that we had oral intercourse, mutual)
*I'm gay. I sucked his penis then he sucked mine. Not remember about ejaculation, as I said, we were really drunk.

by Emily_MHModerator,
And to clarify, it is this site's stance, based on studies and our own MedHelp experts (all of whom are world-renowned for their work in this field), that oral sex carries no risk for HIV.
