Am i being paranoid?

Hi there,

Approximately 2 weeks after a possible exposure, (protected sex with a sex worker) I had a sore throat and nasal congestion. I went to my GP and got prescribed antibiotics and diagnosed with a Sinus Infection, also had a lot off green mucus. Sinus infection cleared up within about 6 days, however sore throat still kind of lingers, and slightly swollen gland on the left side of my throat, I also had a bit of a headache and sharp pains in my head during the sinus infection.

Could this possibly be ARS or am I being to paranoid?

Thanks in advance.

Pls do not look for symptoms on the web.Take a 4th generation Elisa test at 4 weeks from a reputed lab.Its known as duo test which looks for hiv and p24 antigens.6 weeks on this test and u can breathe.
