A month ago I had unprotected sex with a female friend of mine who...gets around. Two days after I started having flu-like symptoms, achiness, intermittent headache, painful swollen glands in my throat and groin, itchiness. I thought maybe I had gotten herpes but then a couple days later I had a single incident of diarrhea that was followed by 3 days of constipation. Since then (about 3 weeks now) I have gone back and forth between constipation and diarrhea. The flu-like symptoms went away, but I wake up every morning with my stomach growling and suddenly the glands in my crotch are burning again today andv I think I'm running a slight fever. My question is does this sound like typical HIV symptoms? I don't have insurance so I'm trying to decide if I just need to go to a clinic and get tested or if these symptoms are off the mark if I should just go to a GP. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.
