HIV risk/odds/stress?

Okay, so 17 days ago i had very fast protected sex with a sex worker. Immedietly after my anxiety kicked in, which i have been diagnosed for in the past. Thinking i had contracted either Herpes or HIV. I wore a condom, and it didnt break and was only inside her for about 1 minute and she gave me about 2 mintues of oral sex with a condom on. But afterwards i noticed what looked like a small razer burn on my upper pubic hair region, I thought to myself this was deffinetly an entry hole for HIV possibly which makes the sex unprotected. It was a very shallow razor burn that i think i got from kick boxing the same night about 4 hours before, and it healed up in about two days. Its been 17 days and i have been having high levels of anxiety threw the whole experience, and i have no developed a mild fever and mild sore throat as well as possible swollen lymph nodes, these symptoms tend to be worse when im in bed at night.  im not exactly sure how to know if they are swollen though for the lymph nodes but it does feel weird in all of the areas that they are. I realize that my anxiety has caused severe digestive problems, as i have had bad heartburn and unnormal bowl movements which i am used to in the past with anxiety. and im wondering if it could have caused me to get sick, like flu sick.. Im very concerned that her vaginal fluid could have touched my what looked like  a razer burn in pubic region and contracted HIV. These symptoms are really scaring me a lot and i'm am just wondering what my chances look like. Because they have occured between the 2-4 weeks after possible exposure i am very worried that they are not because my immune system is runnned down from stress, but possible from HIV. I am just lost and do not know what to think, please help me with some advice on my odds.

Hi, not any risk for hiv. The risk is from unprotected anal/vaginal insertive sex, sharing iv drug needles and mother to child.

See your doctor if you are concerned with your symptoms, they have nothing to do with HIV.

I feel a pain in my groin when I walk as well as flu like symptoms though. I'm concerned this has to do with hiv, I have many matching symptoms and it's been 2 and a half weeks.
