Am sorry to hear your story ! HIV doesnt cause remaining symptoms, the virus symptoms stay for 2-3 weeks and go and usually people never know they have it except after 10-15 years when their CD4 start to decrease and their immune system stop working good beside people with HIV knows what they have and they could have treatment for it at least and would live for 30-40 years on it and some of them never have symptoms and there immune system will work always good without anything !! You and your GF would get better soon but would still have some symptoms as we do, the first 3-6 months are the worse and i can help you telling you to try boosting your immune system taking good vitamins and good supplements and if you can find natural supplements for antiviral that would help to get better soon for now !!
