9. Nausea & Vomiting
Nausea and vomiting are two of the most common symptoms of HIV, according to a 2008 study published in the International Journal of STD & AIDS.
Since the HIV infection compromises the immune system, the body may contract bacterial, fungal and viral infections even in the initial stages.
Nausea is your body’s way of letting you know your system is under attack by these infections.
Furthermore, if you have recently engaged in any of the high-risk behaviors mentioned earlier and have been feeling nauseated regularly, it might be indicative of HIV.
Like nausea and vomiting, diarrhea is a disorder of the gastrointestinal tract caused by bacterial, fungal and viral infections attacking when the immune system is weak and reeling under an HIV infection.
A common symptom of early HIV, diarrhea severely damages the quality of life of the patient and interferes with his or her routine activities.
