The symptomatology of HIV

The symptomatology of HIV is different and varies with the position of infection. Many of the symptoms associated to prematurely infection are due to body's immediate response to the virus itself, wherein the immune process is activated in the presence of a foreign agent. The symptoms are, therefore, a end result of the inflammation that occurs when the body actively fights an infection. The incubation period is immediately followed by "acute reconversion," wherein the body's immune defenses are fully activated and in combat with the infecting virus. The symptoms that accompany reconversion can be mild and simply mistaken for the flu or mono. For some, there are no symptoms. For others, however, the effects can be far more definite and extensive-permanent.
At least half of those infected will involvement the following symptoms during acute reconversion:
    Night sweats
    Malaise (a vague sensitivity of body distress or uneasiness)
    Myalgia (a generalized, muscular ache or pain)
    Rash (eczema-like in appearance and usually distributed around the upper parts of the corpse and palms of the hands).
