I have a persistent sore throat, on and off temperature and now my gums are swelling and it is quite sore to eat, The first few days I had body aches but have not had any nasal conjestion or lung/respetory ailments. I am bi-sexual and have had oral sex with two different men in the past month. I've been to a Doctor and she said the sore throat symptoms are common this past few weeks. But I'm having trouble eating because my gums are so sore and the sore throat will not go away and it has been 5 days now. Are these symptoms suggestive of a STD? Thanks for any help you can provide.
