Needle poked in theatre


I was coming out of the crowded theatre and someone poked me with a needle (that looked like a injection needle).
I was bleeding and visited the hospital. Doc suggested to take a blood test for HIV possibilities. Now i am damn scared and keep thinking if i get HIV.
Is it possible, that i may be infected? As this is really driving me crazy.
