I would like to know what people think of the possibility that the following is related to HIV:
About a year ago, I had a few protected, receptive anal sex sessions with transsexual sex workers in Amsterdam. None ever ejaculated, though one did use spit as a lubricant. Around 6-9 months ago, I had between 5 and 10 encounters with men that included giving oral sex, though none ever ejaculated in my mouth. For the past 4 months, I have been in a monogamous, heterosexual relationship with a woman who was tested for all STDs at the start of our relationship.
About 8 weeks ago, (~2.5 months after the start of the monogamous heterosexual relationship, and about 3-4 months after the last homosexual oral sex encounter), I had one night of severe diarrhea, which coincided with a yearly blood workup that showed very elevated liver enzymes (AST and ALT). I was retested about a week later, and the liver enzymes were back to normal. I also was tested for Hepatitis A, B (vaccinated), and C, all negative. I also received a Tetanus-Diphtheria-Pertussis-Polio booster shot that day.
A day or two later, I felt a twinge in my armpit. About four days after that, all of the lymph nodes in both armpits and up and down my shoulders felt inflamed. Since then, about 6 weeks ago, the lymph nodes in my armpits ache occasionally, and the lymph nodes in my neck often feel swollen. For about four weeks, I felt tired and feverish, though my temperature was always below normal temperature by a degree or two, not above. In the last few days, the feverish feelings have subsided, but my lymph nodes in my neck are still swollen.
I have read that this is not a normal side effect of the vaccine. I have also read that this doesn't fit the normal timeline for seroconversion sickness. I have had no rash, joint pain, or mouth sores. However, I am extremely scared and anxious that it could be HIV, and am very scared to get tested. I have used condoms exclusively in my current relationship. Does anyone think this could be HIV?
