AIDS is a very serious disease that means Acquired Immune Deficiency. Signs of symptoms should come early after HIV gets eliminated within your body then soon after that it turns into AIDS which is deadly and WILL eventually kill you.
Symptoms such as fevers, swollen glands, weakness, and weight loss will occur when you have HIV. If you have these symptoms and they are new to your immune system you should go to see your doctor to see if you have HIV. This will eventually turn into AIDS after weeks, months, and even years. If you notice that you have all or many of these symptoms and you don't contact you doctor, it will get worse and worse and your immune system will get weaker because you didn't take medication to help it out. Even though there is no cure for AIDS and HIV it's still necessary to get checked out and get medication that will minimize the symptoms.
A fever is an increase in body temperature to levels that aren't normal. You will know when you have a fever because you could get headaches and you will start sweating irregularly.
