Only your doctor can diagnose enlarged lymph nodes.  

If you think you had a risk, then feel free to share it with us, and we will tell you if you require testing or not.

there are many things that can cause swollen lymph nodes in a person.

if you had UNPROTECTED INTERCOURSE with someone of unknown status...then you need to test.  it's as simple as that ! ! !

you "test" because you had unprotected sex...NOT because of whatever symptoms you think you might or might not have.

i can tell you that most ppl who think they have swollen lymph nodes...dont have them when they actually see their doctor.

No one can give you the "guts" to test...and not testing b/c of fear is ridiculous.  Not testing isn't going to change your status....if you're neg (which likely you are)...you are delaying your relief...and if your are POS...you are delaying proper care for yourself.  Makes no sense.

Without going into detail, as it isn't important and you will only obssess about it...your "lymph node" symptoms, if they ARE truly enlarged are not at all consistent with HIV infection.

Go get tested...your results at this point will be totally conclusive and then you can finally put this behind you.
