One time receptive anal, ARS symptoms?

Hey whats up everyone? Well I'm a 24 year old, straight male.  About 35 days ago I was curious and met with a Transsexual escort...pretty stupid I know. Anyway, we spoke and s/he claimed HIV negative because s/he was going to get a hair transplant procedure done soon and apparently they test for HIV before hand.  I was receptive anal, a condom was used the entire time...plenty of lube and the condom covered the entirety of his penis.  S/he did ejaculate and for some reason I thought i felt something but once pulled out i looked at the condom and it was filled with sperm, no dripping, completely intact.  Is it possible anything leaked through??I suppose I'm just getting paranoid because about 4 weeks after this, I developed a sore throat and stiff neck...I thought I had a fever because I felt warm, but every time I checked I was normal temp.  What do you guys think? Am I in the clear? I only get worried because I have seen other exposures similar to mine on the Doctor's Forum lately in which the individuals ended up being positive...Hopefully I just got a cold and its terrible timing :( THANKS A BUNCH

If your condom stayed intact, you did the right thing and had safe sex, which is a no risk situation for HIV, symptoms are never a clear indication of HIV to vague and mirror other bugs out there such as flu

You did not have a risk in the situation you've provided. Make sure you continue to use latex condoms for anal and vaginal sex and you'll keep youself safe from contracting HIV and most STDs.

Thanks for the reassuring comments :) I suppose the only thing that's keeping me hung up on this is the lymph node/sore throat.  I know that it's foolish to diagnose your own, but I was just walking by the mirror yesterday and it was there, a red lump on the lower left side of my neck. It has since gone down but I've certainly had many sore throats before, but never ever had a lymph node.  My sore throat has lasted about a week and a half now

you're good to go bud
you are confusing guilt and punishment with your actions.

no reason to feel bad, or guilty
and doubt it was a mistake at all.
