Hi, Can pain and ringing in the ear with pressure in the ear and the head be a possible early hiv symptom after two weeks of an exposure? In other words are these considered flu like symptoms that may be hiv related?


The most common symptoms that people can feel when they get HIV include fever, rash, swollen lymph glands, muscle and joint pain and fatigue.

Ear pain or ringing in the ear are not commonly associated with a seroconversion illness.

If you are worried and would like to get tested or talk to a health care provider, check out our clinic finder for an STI clinic near you.
