Aids Symptoms??

I have heard that there is a link btween chronic nosebleeds and HIV. One can experience chronic nosebleeds and this could be the onset of HIV. My question is, is this true or are they not linked at all. I have done research on it myself and found that the only thing it can be linked to is the kidneys.

Yes Hiv can cause your platelets to drop. Platelets are needed for bloodclotting. This can cause nosebleeds.

Would this only be in the beginning or would the nosebleeds continue?

Hi George
I haven't heard or experienced this... so I can't provide an answer for you.
