Hi there - please don't take it personally. Most people here won't give advice on symptoms for a variety of reasons. First, HIV does not always produce symptoms - it is our stance that HIV can only be diagnosed by testing, and that symptoms, or lack thereof, mean nothing. Second, while you sound as though you are likely to keep your word and accept that you had no risk, it is often the case that anxiety gets the best of people, and they have real or imagined symptoms that they believe to be HIV-related, even when they have had NO risk. When members focus on symptoms, they often end up back here posting anxiety-driven questions, which aren't productive to anyone.
Thus, it is the goal of this forum to focus on assessing risk and advising members on whether they need to test, what test is conclusive, and the time period of testing.
