still stressed

I wrote in a few weeks ago - I am in good shape and healthy. I had unprotected sex with stripper in Toronto.  One and only time ever. Had negative HIV test @ 13 days, 21 days and now @ 69 days.  My doctor tells me not to worry.
I have a sore throat and tongue, sore neck but think I am being paranoid - thoughts?
Am I at risk of contracting HIV.
Thanks

Welcome back. But you were reassured in very strong terms by Dr. Hook and there isn't much to add.  As discussed then, you had a low risk exposure.  And a negatives antibody test more than 8 weeks after exposure proves you weren't infected.  Symptoms are meaningless in the face of negative testing; the test results always rule.  There is no chance you have HIV.

Your duplicate thread in the STD forum has been deleted.  Please also note the MedHelp rule that permits a maximum of 2 questions every 6 months in the professionally moderated forums (see Terms and Conditions).

Really, mellow out.  You should not be at all worried about these events.  All is well.
