VERY VERY SCARED (SERIOUS SYMPTOMS)

Here is the full story,

For about a month now ive been having pain in my lower left abdomen. 6/8/11 i was in florida and had a sexual encounter with a woman, i rubbed my penis head on her vagina for about 4-10 seconds. Two days later i went to get my abdomen checked out and i got an std test to be safe, it was a walkin clinic(doctor wasn't very helpful) , he said if he saw anything in the blood from the std test hed prescribe me some antibiotics.. well a nurse came back with a prescription of flyagl. I asked her why and she didnt know, so i got it filled and took 3 the next day (Saturday),

Sunday can around and about 5pm i went to the er for symptoms : pain in my left abdomen shooting into my penis, and pain while urinating and ejaculating ( not severe but i was worried and it was Sunday)  They ran a swab test on me, about 30 mins later she came back in and said i had either Gonorrhea/ or Chlamydia, wouldnt know for three days which, but defiantly bacteria in my urethra. She also told me to stop taking the Flagyl, and then they gave me a huge shot in my ***(hip) which hurt like hell for about 3 hours, and prescribed me Doxy.

Monday i was so nervous i went to my doctor in the AM, and he said it was weird but not sure what it was and to wait for the test result to come back. I took one doxy that morning. About lunch i NOTICED had Thrush on my tongue.. not too bad but it was there, with about 5 bumps on the back of my tongue.

Tuesday came and my doctor called me to make sure how i was feeling and i told him about the thrush, he said antibiotics will do that ( even though itd had only been 2 days) and gave me some nystaine mouth wash. since i work till late in the day i went to the walkin to get my thrush checked out, and my lab results were back.  I also noticed Tuesday that my lymph nodes were beginning to swell, My test all came back negative, even gonorrhea/chlamydia, he looked and pretty much said all of its from the antibiotics (nodes, thrush, diarrhea) and said not to worry.

Wednesday ( a week after exposure) nodes still sore, and still thrush and diarrhea. I went to the er and of course everything came back negative.

Thursday 8 days after .... My doctor wants me to come in  and get checked out... He looks at the thrush... says its not bad and says hes had patients who develop it after a day of antibiotics, and my nodes are swollen because of the thrush.  My whole neck is swore, He schedules me a cat scan and a gi doctor to go see in the next 2-3 weeks. I also notice im spitting up A LOT of snot. Nose runs alittle but not much nose running

Friday today (9 days later)  thrush is still here, doesn't really hurt, cant wipe it away.. still 5-6 bumps on back of tongue. Doesn't hurt to swallow... throat wise but i can feel the lymph nodes in my neck hurting when i swallow, no fever yet all week, and no rash that i know of.

Whats wrong with me? Ive always been a huge worrier, and my nodes are swollen often... never seemed this bad.. Appetite seems normal, ive also have a history of depression. I have been sleeping for 12-13 hours a day, but iv fairly certain thats because of the worrying and depression, im embarrassed to face my friends and family, so ive been hiding in my room... When i get a bit of good news ( such as antibiotics can cause many of these symptoms..) mentally ill feel great for the time, will hangout with friends laugh... eat.. but then when i start thinking about the possibility of HIV, i go back into my room/sleep/sick to my stomach/ and angry with my self


Please help me any ideas would be appreciated. I cant wait for 6weeks,3,months, and 6motnhs to get tested.. .but im just so nervous... i feel so helpless.. every time i look up anything on the web such as Swollen lymph nodes and sinus.. it all comes back to HIV....

My whole life ive had problems with canker sores inside my mouth, now i also have a cut under my tooth, that is very visible.. Could it all be from that? its very painful and bleeds when i brush....

You can't contract HIV in the fashion you describe, if you do. You'd be probably awarded a world record at the Guinness. It's never happened and will never happen. Move on.

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

Rubbing is not considered as risky exposure
Air deactivates the virus once it is outside the body
