METHOD 1: SPOTTING EARLY SYMPTOMS
Determine if you are experiencing acute fatigue with no explainable cause.
Fatigue can be the sign of many different illnesses, but it’s a symptom many people with HIV experience. This symptom shouldn’t cause great alarm if it’s the only one you’re feeling, but it’s something to look into further.
- Acute fatigue isn’t the same as simply feeling sleepy. Do you feel tired all the time, even after a good night’s sleep? Do you find yourself taking more afternoon naps than usual, and avoiding strenuous activities because you feel low energy? This type of fatigue is cause for concern.
- If this symptom persists over a few weeks or months’ time, be sure to get tested to rule out HIV.
