Anxious and scared to death

I have recently been reassured on this and other forums that I never had an exposure on HIV, after explaining my incident here
http://www.medhelp.org/posts/HIV-Prevention/Concerned-of-unprotected-encounter/show/1778864#post_8181260

However I can't find a peace of mind and it's consuming me. The reason is that just after 3 weeks I have a 37.5 fever, possibly more because I felt a little cold at sea today, sore throat, mouth ulcer and there's a hard, painful lump on my right tonsillar lymph at the size of a hazelnut. I wouldn't bother at all if the circumstances were different, but the coincidence of symptoms just after 3 weeks is driving me insane.

I feel like they're gonna ban me from this site, but right now I am desperate, I have to wait 3 more weeks to get some preliminary (hopefully) negative result and honestly I'm petrified and I needed to share my concern with other people who may have a similar problem with mine.

If you're looking for peace of mind, you've already received it from the people on the HIV Prevention Forum.
If you cannot accept their assessment of your risk, then you have HIV Anxiety and we do not deal with that specifically on this forum. We do have an HIV Anxiety Group I suggest you look into. Or seek professional help on your own.

I will close with the final response you received from Teak and I concur with his advice 100%.
Peace

Move along, you never had a risk and didn't need testing.
