Is dizziness a sign of HIV?

hi there

Signs and symptoms
The first symptoms of HIV can appear within six weeks of infection but after a few weeks they usually disappear. After this many people have no symptoms for years.

HIV affects the ability of your body's immune system to fight off infection. If the HIV is left untreated, it will destroy a type of white blood cell called CD4 T-cells, which play an important role in your immune system.

The number of CD4 blood cells that you have is called your CD4 count. The lower your CD4 count is, the more likely you are to show signs of illness. However, a low CD4 count is not an illness in itself. Some people remain well when their CD4 counts get lower, at least for a while. Other people with HIV may start developing symptoms before their CD4 count is lowered.

What to look out for
Common symptoms of HIV infection, especially as your CD4 counts get lower, include:

unintentional weight loss
chronic diarrhoea
skin rashes, especially on your face, genitals or anus
an increase in herpes ulcers or thrush infections in your mouth and genitals
sweats, especially at night
unusual tiredness
nausea or loss of appetite
swollen lymph glands in the neck, groin or armpits.
These symptoms can all be caused by conditions other than HIV, and do not mean you have AIDS. However, if you experience all or some of these symptoms persistently, it might be a good idea to get an HIV test, especially if you think you may have been at risk of HIV infection.

dizziness can be anything your ear loseing balance from hearing too much music. your blood presure it can be anything our body is very funny that is why u have to go see your medical doctor every year and have safe sex .

no. dizziness is not a sign. please get some education on this serious STD, and no more sex or IV drugs for you!! please go see your doctor, as dizziness could be as simple as poor diet, to something greater.

Dizziness is a symptom of many many diseases or a side effect of many medications. If you have any concern whatsoever that you may have contracted HIV go get a test. DO NOT wait until you have symptoms since most people don't have symptoms until it has advanced to AIDS.

No....if it persists try drinking water, checking you pressure and see your MD
