The only way to establish whether you have hiv or not is by testing.Hiv is never diagnosed on the basis of symptoms alone.

It variable.Everyones immune systems and immune response is different.Some people will be consistently ill,where as others won,t be ill at all.Some people will suffer symptoms and some people won,t.
