In the article below we aim to discuss the AIDS symptoms. However, before learning about the symptoms let us have a basic knowledge about AIDS. This acquired immune deficiency syndrome or commonly known as AIDS is one of the most dreaded disease in the society today.
AIDS primarily represents that disease which chiefly affects the immune system of the body. AIDS represents the category of symptoms or infectors that harm the immune system present in the human body through the virus Human Immunodeficiency (common known as HIV).
This HIV constantly reduces the functioning of the person’s immune system and makes individuals susceptible to diseases like various infections and tumors which can be dreadful.
HIV is primarily spread through the direct contact of any person’s mucous membrane or blood circulation that has a fluid containing HTV, such as mother’s milk, vaginal fluid, preseminal fluid, seminal fluid and blood.
The AIDS symptoms are primarily found in the infected immune system of the person. Fungi, parasites, bacteria or viruses are some of the main reasons causing the conditions that ultimately lead to AIDS. These symptoms primarily affect the immune system through HIV.
The AIDS symptoms are primarily found in each and every part of the body. In the early or initial stage of AIDS there is a probably a good likelihood that you will not be having or I should say you will not be able to identify any AIDS symptoms or signs. However, there are signs which can help you such as presence of flu-like condition for 2 – 4 weeks time after being infected.
The most common and early AIDS symptoms include: sore throat (pharyngitis), swollen lymph glands, rash, headache and pyrexia (commonly known as fever). Even if the infected individual does not have the above mentioned symptoms he can still transmit the HIV to the people near him.
The AIDS virus usually starts with the lymph nodes and then usually goes towards the helped T cells. These T cells play the role of completely managing the immune system of the body.
The person suffering from AIDS can stay without the identification of any major symptoms for over 9 years; however, after this much time virus becomes very strong and destroys the entire immune system.
During this period, the immune system of the person infected from AIDS gets damaged a lot, which makes the body sensitive to even smaller infections. There are good signs of affected person exhibiting soft infections such as breath problems, cough, fever, diarrhea, weight reduction and swollen lymph nodes.
The symptoms of some of these infection are difficulty in breathing, dry cough, night sweats, soaking, chronic diarrhea, weight reduction, headaches, steady white spots, distorted or blurred vision, shaking chills, consistent high fever, etc.
In the later years, AIDS virus becomes more deadly and expands in the body at which stage some of the serious AIDS symptoms are found. While suffering from AIDS the count of CD4 lymphocyte decline to lower than 200 levels while the count in normal circumstances varies from 800 – 1200.
So, it is better to consult a doctor immediately in the early situation and start the treatment.
