Oral thrush and night sweats unprotected oral

I had unprotected oral 2 months ago.  I had a stuffy nose and small dry cough for 2 weeks straight roughly 2 weeks after that event.  A fever for one day the following week and  Diarrhea for a day on another.  Now just last week I had thrush.  I’ve had no other possible contacts.  I’ve tested negative with oraquick at 54 and day 58.  RNA test at day 60 negative, obviously wrong timing for that test.  I’m currently waiting for my duo antibody antigen test.  I’m losing my mind.  How could I have these symptoms and be negative from oral. I may be the first person in history at this point.

The only risks for HIV in adults are:
1) Having unprotected (no condom) penetrative anal or vaginal sex, OR
2) Sharing IV drug equipment with other IV drug users.

Your thoughts of being the first person in over FORTY YEARS to get HIV from receiving oral sex are irrational.  None of your symptoms are unique to, or even indicative of, HIV infection. That is absolutely NOT how early HIV infection presents.

Look for another cause of your medical issues, because you can definitively rule out HIV.

You don’t consider these symptoms of hiv?  Flu like illness night sweats loss of appetite and oral thrush?
Symptoms do not appear one by one.  They appear all at once and then disappear together.  Move on from this event - you likely had the flu, not a "flu-like illness."
You got your cold or flu from whoever you interacted with maskless or by not washing with soap, etc .  This isn't your first cold so you should stop thinking this cold is some kind of hiv induced cold. Most of the rest of your symptoms might be anxiety induced, so relax (and they might go away) instead of worrying about an impossible disease transmission.
