Sore throat, extreme faigue, headache but no fever, rash, swollen nodes or night sweats

I am extremely extremely worried. On 9th May, I had vaginal sex with a female sex worker. After the intercourse I realized that my condom was not on. I do not know when it came off but seemed like on way out (though i did not see the condom before it was dispossed off, she told me that my semen was inside).  Three weeks after this exposure I started having very bad sinus attack - runny and stuffy nose and chest, cough with mucus, pain in cheeck bones, eyes, forehead etc and sore throat.  Except for one day when I had fever of 99.5F for two hrs, I did not have  any fever, rash or swollen nodes.  I may have little bit of tonsil though.  I started taking antibiotic one week back (during 4th week post exposure).  Though after antibiotic I started feeling better from Sinus (it is not over though) but last two days, I have been feeling extremely tired and have some headache.  I have two questions. I am dying of fear and anxiety and will really appeciate your valuable inputs.

1) Are my symptoms similar to early symptoms of ARS/ HIV?

2) Out of all  the early HIV or ARS symptoms that I have read so far  -- I have a  mild sore thrat, may be lightly swollen tonsils, extremely fatigueness (six days after sinums started in third week) and some headache. Since I do not have fever, rash, swollen nodes, or night sweats, does this mean a sinus or other problem vs early sypmtoms of HIV.

Sorry for repeating myself but I would really appreciate any inputs. Any and all answer (s) would only help me and other in similar situations.

You'll never know unless you get tested at 3 months.  Anything can be causing these symptoms.
