symptoms less then a week

After an exposure is it possible to show symptoms of hiv less then a week. A friend of mine called an hiv hotline and they told him if you become infected you get extremely sick, nausea, headaches, fever within a few days after exposure. I guess my question is can you show symptoms before the two weeks like a few days after your exposure.
