swollen lymph nodes....

Hi and merry christmas :)

5 months after having protected sex,I was thinking about HIV all the time and I developed these symptoms :

1:nullness in the head, with a severe headache that lasted for about 1 week not to mention bieng tired all the time.
2:after the headache started to cool down and get better I had a flue for about 5 days with no high fever, only sneezing and runny nose...
3:after that I felt dryness in my upper mouth and swollen lymph nodes in the right side of my neck

then I went to a doctor and he told me that I'm having a high blood pressure.....

and now  after all of that....I feel mostly ok...no tiredness...no severe headaches....although i feel it sometimes quickly and it doesnt take long......

So I'm concerned about this.....why did I have a long headache that lasted for a long time???

and what are the causes of these swollen lymph nodes?? could it be there for other causes that has nothing to do with HIV??

plz answer me...what do u think about all of these symptoms?? could it be from thinking all the time???

I had H1N1 once me and my brother...at a time really near to that intercoures I had with that prostitute....

I just cant remember was it before or after :(

Now I'm worried if that flu I had these days had something to do with that sex I had, I know I didnt have a risk but I'm tired of thinking....my H1N1 tests for me and my bro turned positive

you have been assessed as not having a risk for contracting hiv.  you have also been told that whatever "symptoms" you are having are NOT hiv related.

kindly move on as this forum has nothing left to offer.
