Thanks for your question. However, this is indeed a very strange question.

Sadly AIDS cannot be easily diagnosed. It is very understandable that people think that they may have been infected by it and so are afraid. For this reason they are afraid to go to a doctor or even to get themselves tested. If you have any of these symptoms you have indeed been infected.

Beginning of the Symptoms: In the early stages, you will have fewer symptoms. After a month or two you may get flu-like illness, including: Headache, Fever, Enlarged lymph nodes in the neck and groin area and Tiredness

You may find that these symptoms can disappear in a week or in a month. They are also mistaken for another viral infection, such as flu.

Later Symptoms; In the later stages the virus catastrophically weakens the immune system, and you may have the following symptoms: Recurring fever or profuse night sweats, Diarrhea, Rapid weight loss, Extreme and unexplained tiredness, Sores of the mouth, anus, or genitals and even Pneumonia.

However, do not fret you can still be cured if you consult your doctor and follow his treatment.
