I’m a guy who in the past month and half received unprotected oral from a sex worker whose status I’m unaware of. In 2 weeks I experienced weakness, then diarrhea which is still ongoing, and over the past 3 weeks I’ve experienced skin peeling off the mouth every morning when I wake up. And my tongue seems to be white and red like lesions have have appeared at the back of the tongue.
My gums don’t bleed or hurt, no difficulty while eating. Mainly it’s those three conditions now. I was wondering if this might be hiv cause I’ve read a lot and all the mentioned signs seem to relate with hiv. I’m sick worried. Please any insight would be appreciated

This answers all of your HIV questions, and if you can think of any more just reread about the 3. You had zero risk therefore  testing is irrelevant to your situation because you had zero risk. HIV is a fragile virus, which is instantly inactivated in air and also in saliva which means it is effectively dead so it can't infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. It doesn't matter if you and they were actively bleeding or had cuts at the time either because the HIV is effectively dead.  
Only 3 adult risks are the following:
1. unprotected penetrating vaginal with a penis
2. unprotected penetrating anal sex with a penis
3. sharing needles that you inject with.
The only way to get HIV is if you did one of the 3. The situation you describe is a long way from any of these 3.
Even with blood, lactation, cuts, rashes, burns, etc the air or the saliva does not allow inactivated virus to infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. Doctors have calculated the risk from what you describe to be less than that of being hit by a meteor, therefore no one will get HIV from what you did in the next 40 years of your life either. The above HIV science is 40 years old and very well established, so no detail that you can add to your encounter will change it from zero risk.
If you didn't have one of the 3 then you are just worrying about your own hiv theory - which is unrealistic for you to think that can become reality - so you should move on back to your happy life instead.
I doubt the skin is peeling off your mouth or your tongue is whiter than all the other negative people who post here about their "white" tongue thinking it is a bad sign, however this is not a mouth forum so see doc for a diagnosis if concerned. Personally I would stop "reading a lot" about hiv and spend my time doing something interesting.

Thanks for your input AnxiousNoMore,
I forgot to mention that I experience some noises from my belly at night and sometimes during the day. Could this and the other symptoms be related anyhow.
No one here can diagnose your non-HIV related symptoms.  You were never exposed to HIV.  See your doctor for your concerns that have nothing to do with HIV.
