Acute respiratory symptoms of HIV infection

Hi,

I've an encounter back in early May. Just oral sex, no ejaculation in mouth and no anal sex.
2 weeks later I develop a flu and a low grade fever (99 F). (but at that time the flu is widespread as my dad and bro also got a flu).
After the flu is healed, I developed a sore at my throat which the doctor said it's viral infection.
Then 2 days later I developed tonsillitis.
Since then I have been having a dry cough (no mucus).
Now, after almost 2 months, the cough is more severe at night.
I also feel dizzy and my jaw is painful, I don't know if it is my lymph node or whatever. It's just not sore throat but whenever I push inside my jaw, I can feel it's painful.

Am I having acute symptoms of HIV?

Please help!!

you had NO risk

ars symptoms come at 2-4 weeks post exposure and last for 1-2 weeks. a normal temp is 98.6... ars fever is higher than 99 degrees.    your symptoms have not even indicative of infection.

once again...YOU HAD NO RISK

it could be, you need to see your doctor. are you not receiving HAART for your HIV? you should be if you are already seeing symptoms.
