Worried of getting hiv through ejaculation in mouth

Hello Everyone, last month i met a stranger in a somewhat risky area. We did not have sex; but i gave him oral in which he had ejaculated in my mouth. Ever since i have not been able to sleep, my whole life is flashing by.. my worries are getting worse since i have been experience headaches and nausea the past two days.. what makes things even worse is that i live in a country where u cant do HIV testing.. please help me what is my risk in getting exposed?

You had no risk of HIV because you can't get HIV from oral sex. You are so safe that you don't even need to test.

HIV is instantly inactivated in air and also instantly in saliva which means it is effectively dead so it can't infect from oral sex. It doesn't matter if you and they were actively bleeding at the time either because the HIV is effectively dead.
Only adult risks are unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal sex or sharing needles that you inject with but you didn't do that so you had no risk. This sentence is all you need to know to protect yourself against HIV.
Even with blood, lactation cuts, rashes, burns etc air and saliva do not allow inactivated virus to infect from oral sex. The above HIV science is 40 years old and very well established so nothing you can add will make your situation a risk.
It is too early for ARS so your symptoms can't have anything to do with HIV even if you could catch it. Only your doctor can diagnose your headaches and nausea, but likely they are the result of fear that you are dying - which you aren't. You can visit the std forum for info on oral std though.

Thanks a lot for your response.. you guys are doing a great job in assuring and raising awareness in such matters.. i have read that oral poses no risk; its the headaches, nausea and night sweats that is putting me in such a low state!
If you relax they will go away if they are just psychosomatic. Anyone will get night sweats if they think they are dying.
