Hi! ARS appears like 2 to 4 weeks after infection and may last for 3-14 days. However, few individuals have prolonged symptoms. ARS can be easily mistaken for a common flu, so the symptoms would not be a good disease indicator. The only way to know is to get tested. Also, not everybody develops the syndrome.

Don’t get scared if you get respiratory symptoms like coughing, sneezing, runny nose, or sinus infection, these are not ARS symptoms but fever, sore throat, swollen glands, night sweats, muscle pain, etc…..are. Have you been experiencing any of these?

If the symptoms haven’t developed 6 week after the exposure, they probably won’t develop at all. After ARS, many people don’t develop any other HIV related illnesses for over 10 years, however…there were cases when people went straight into AIDS after ARS.
Do you think you may be experiencing ARS? Be very careful about having sex unprotected because the virus is very contagious at this point and the transmission is the most likely to occur.

with ars, do people generally have all the symptoms all at once, or will they come one at a time. for example, i had a stomach aches with headache, then cough, then flu like symptoms for a day with fever, then lost voice, then lymph nodes swollen in groin along with joint pain.
