Risk/Testing needed? Symptoms?

Recieved unprotected oral sex from an escort (claimed she was tested every 6 months) and ejaculated in her mouth and she swallowed.  2 weeks later felt warmish and feverish but temp came in at a shade above 99 degrees.  No rashes,no sore throat no thrush, no joint pain.  Neck hurts a bit but could be due to stress or sleeping funny.  started  2 week antibiotic when warm feeling started, which was 2 weeks post oral exposure.

1.  is the fever with ARS more severe?  Like a real "I'm sick" type of fever?
2.  was I at risk of HIV?
3.  Is testing recommended?
4.  Can anxiety cause these symptoms?
5.  could this be ARS, seeing as I started feeling warmer 2 weeks post oral?  or meds/anxiety?

There is no debate (among experts) about the HIV risks associated with oral sex.  The risk is so low that almost nobody who cares for HIV infected patients has ever had a patient believed to have been infected that way.  Among experts, it's a semantic issue about using terms like "no risk" and "very low risk".  There is no difference between my or Dr. Hook's use of "low risk" and other experts' "no risk".

"And oral sex is basically safe sex -- completely safe with respect to HIV and although not zero risk for other STDs, the chance of infection is far lower than for unprotected vaginal or anal sex.  Please educate yourself about the real risks.  If you stick with oral sex and condom-protected vaginal or anal sex, you have no HIV worries and very little worry about other STDs. "   DR HANSFIELD

"I am sure you can find lots of people who belive that HIV is transmitted by oral sex, but you will not find scientific data to support this unrealistic concern..."   DR HOOK

"HIV is not spread by touching, masturbation, oral sex or condom protected sex."- DR. HOOK

in the public HIV Prevention forum of MedHelp, TEAK and the other moderators maintain that oral sex in all forms is a zero risk activity. Would you agree with this assessment?  

The observation on thousand and thousand of observations is that HIV is not spread by oral sex (of any sort).  DR. HOOK

Ok thanks.  Just a quick question though.  Even though I wasn't at risk, can a the following be ars symptoms for someone who is?  Both sides of neck the muscles are sore, like the muscles that connect the neck to the upper shoulder trapezius muscles.  Exact same spot on both sides.  

I know u said I'm not at risk, but these muscles feel very tender and sore to the touch.  Also my neck in front feels puffy...any possible connections?
