Background: Male/Heterosexual/No Drug User. Living in the Border Juarez, Mexico/El Paso, TX.
Good afternoon, i’ve A few questions, I’m losing my mind.
On Nov. 11, 2018 I had sexual intercourse with a girl (I don’t know her HIV status)
Sex was protected vaginal (I’m not sure if the condom broke, I didn’t check it, my bad)
And I received unprotected oral sex.
5-7 days after the encounter I got sick Tonsillitis, cold sore on lip and diarrhea for 4 days. (No fever, rashes) I look up the symptoms and I started to panick because it related to HIV, I asked this girl if she had any STD or something that I should know about and she got mad and blocked me from every social media, so my anxiety went to the roof.
I went to the urologist (in Mexico) 15 days after the exposure and he told me that is unlikely that I acquired HIV through oral sex, that I just had a cold, but I had to wait 3 months to take a HIV test.
I went to a lab 30 days after exposure and took an full STD test, all of them came negative.
42 days after exposure I went and took a rapid ELISA test on the same lab (no reactive)
The problem is that I have a stiff neck, the doctor (urologist) checked my neck and told me that is just muscular and no lymph nodes are enlarged.
But I’m anxious because the stiff neck is still there, tomorrow is 8 weeks after exposure.
What are the chances that the neck is a HIV symptom?
I know I have to wait a full month for a conclusive test, but the wait is long and painful, i’ve been with a bunch of girls before but this never happened to me before.
Thank you for reading this.
I’ll appreaciate any advice or comment, thank you.
