what are the symptoms for aids?
Early Infection: Fever Headaches Sore Throat Swollen Lymph Glands Rash
Swollen lymph nodes — often one of the first signs of HIV infection Diarrhea Weight loss Fever Cough and shortness of breath
Latest infection: The development of an opportunistic infection — an infection that occurs when your immune system is impaired — such as Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) A CD4 lymphocyte count of 200 or less — a normal count ranges from 800 to 1,200

Soaking night sweats Shaking chills or fever higher than 100 F (38 C) for several weeks Dry cough and shortness of breath Chronic diarrhea Persistent white spots or unusual lesions on your tongue or in your mouth Headaches Blurred and distorted vision Weight loss You may also begin to experience signs and symptoms of later stage HIV infection itself, such as:
