Symptoms of HIV and AIDS

What are the symptoms of HIV and AIDS?

HIV/AIDS

Also called as Human Immunodeficiency Virus(HIV), Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome(AIDS) is considered a familiar repulsive monster in mankind born on its own.

HIV causes AIDS and gets involved with the body's ability to fight infections.

No cure exists for AIDS, but strict sticking to antiretroviral regimens (ARVs) could gradually slow the disease's progress, also prevent secondary infections and complications.

HIV/AIDs is the most common sexually transmitted disease. If someone is anyhow aware of STDs or STIs, the whole credit goes to the disease called HIV AIDs.

What is an STD?

STDs is an abbreviation for Sexually Transmitted Diseases. The same diseases can be considered as Sexually Transmitted Infections which are abbreviated as STIs. STDs or STIs are diseases or infections transmitted through sexual contact, developed by shared bacteria, viruses, or parasites. 

A disease or an infection related to the sexual transmission could be born then and there itself during sex between two uninfected persons who are subjected to earlier sex with other persons. In another way, the infected person may share a virus or parasite with an uninfected person during a sexual course. It is more of an uncertain infection, most of the STDs require a medical diagnosis.

Causes of HIV AIDS

The virus can be transmitted through contact with infected blood, semen, or vaginal fluids.

Blood products such as unclean needles or unscreened blood when shared publicly could raise a chance of spreading infection from one person to another or giving birth to infection on mixing of one genetics to another genetics.

Intercourse unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sex.

Transmission from mother to baby by pregnancy, labor, or nursing.

Symptoms of HIV AIDS

Once HIV infection is induced, flu-like symptoms such as fever, sore throat, and fatigue could occur. HIV is usually asymptomatic until it develops into AIDS. 

AIDS symptoms include weight loss, fever or night sweats, fatigue, and recurrent infections.

People may experience pain in various parts of the body under the influence of HIV AIDs infection.

The most affected part of the body due to HIV AIDS is the abdomen. As the abdomen is settled just way above the groin area where the genitals are presented and intended for sexual activity through HIV could come into the body as the sexually transmitted infection, the abdomen becomes the first fast and the most affected part of the body.

The infection induced in the abdomen could damage digestion and respiration. The digestion would not stay in a normal condition once the virus started living in the abdomen or deeply into the intestine. The improper digestive system impacts the immunity and metabolism of the body thereby damaging the whole body mechanism.

The improper digestive system results in various gastrointestinal problems namely nausea, persistent diarrhea, vomiting, or watery diarrhea. The day-by-day persistence of such conditions leads to complete damage of the digestive system that would only leave with death but nothing.

However good food is taken into the body, the digestive system cannot take the needed nutrients and supply them to the body parts. This damage would lead to serious repercussions in the whole body system that most of the men or women affected with HIV AIDs do not compound blood quantity or good blood.

The bad blood streaming in the blood vessels throughout the body damages the parts from their proper development and functioning.

The increment in the bad blood quantity in the body increases the sugar levels in the body to an unimaginable level that the body starts decomposing in itself. This decomposition impacts the lever the most which needs to be in good condition for better body functioning.

The death due to HIV AIDs is finally achieved when the lever is completely damaged. 

Other pain-occurring parts in the body are affected by HIV AIDS namely the mouth, throat, and chest.

The mouth may see ulcers, white tongue, the throat may see a hard time while swallowing or breathing and the chest may see dry cough that brings a burning sensation in the lungs or the windpipe.

The groin area could swell or feel an intense sore due to the infection by HIV AIDS.

The whole body may undergo fatigue, fever, loss of appetite, malaise, night sweats, or sweating. 

There are also common symptoms like opportunistic infection, headache, oral thrush, mouth thrush, pneumonia, red blotches, severe unintentional weight loss, skin rash, or swollen lymph nodes.

Take Away 

HIV AIDs is a viral infection and its prolonged growth in the body to an extreme danger that one who is infected could see death-causing conditions. It simply demotivates the body from metabolism and immunity that any other diseases could impact more than usual under the influence of HIV AIDS.

There could be many rare reasons to get HIV AIDS but sexual intercourse is the first most and most common reason. Thus, using a condom during multiple sexual intercourses is the best simple precaution.
