Oral now a White Tongue and other symptoms

5 Months ago I received oral sex from a prostitute and a rimjob.  No vaginal intercourse.  The rimming was for 5 minutes and oral for a couple of minutes.  A month or so in I noticed some discomfort in my armpits that lasted a couple of months on and off.  A couple weeks I had sever flu/cold symptoms....fever, coughing, runny nose, etc and have had a persistent white tongue for the last week and a half or so along with a cough.  What are my chances this could be related to HIV or another STD?  Should I get tested?  I am becoming increasingly worried.

Oral is not a risk for HIV transmission. Most importantly, no one ever has been documented to acquire this virus from receiving oral sex.

Your symptoms are not specific to HIV, please see a doctor for proper diagnosis. You don't have an HIV concern.
