Potential Infection, NEED HELP
Hello, I have been a paranoid wreck for much too long, and I just want some insight, anything really.   I caught this cold (it seemed like) with body aches, stuffy head, sore throat, and EXTREME FATIGUE. I would be wanting to go to bed by 7:30 pm everyday, and I am still experiencing this. I am tired all day, when I never was before, and it still feels like there is a lump in my throat, as well as being tired out super early.  I never had a fever though, but I have never felt this fatigued in my life.  This is now 8 weeks after unprotected vaginal sex (receiving), and the symptoms started showing after 6. Could this be HIV, or just my mind playing tricks on me, as I have not slept much AT ALL, and have been working a new full time job everyday, with a lot of added stress.  Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Symptoms or lack of will not tell you anything about your stattus. If you had an exposure you can obtain your conclusive negative test result 3 months post exposure.

Yes, but does this sound like an infection? Is fatigue caused by HIV or just the medications used to control it, im rather confused on that part..

No. Your symptoms came on to late to be related to ARS and like I have already advised you symptoms do not mean a thing.
