PLZ HELP..AM I INFECTED WITH STDs OR HIV?


Respected Members..
i am suffering anxiety of contracting aids ,though i havent had any kind of sex(oral or vaginal) and have never taken drugs..i am 20 yrs old.and a male
my case history is as follows -

on 2nd august,2010 my frnd visited a sex worker.
he told me that he had safe sex...but i dont really believe him....as he is kind of impulsive guy..and may have had unprotected sex..
on 26th august(after 24 days of his sexual exposure) i went to my frnd's home.
he uses a kind of oil to strengthen his penis(as he claims)... so i tried it on my penis...and Masturbated few minutes later..
from that moment i got extremely tensed about contracting hiv from him(i am not sure if he has HIV)....
all day and night ..i just thought about my death...and how my parents will feel hearing this.

"that oil somehow may have been contaminated with his pre ejaculatory fluid and hiv virus might have been transmitted into my body while masturbation" - this is what always surrounded my thoughts.

i got very tensed..
3 days after that unfortunate masturbation(on 29th AUG)...i got mild fever that continued..
it was actually a fever like sensation that occured whenever i woke up from sleep.
my sleep became irregular(maybe coz of immense tension..maybe coz hiv)..
i sweated a lot...had tinging sensation in my left arm..(can perpheral neuropathy occur in 3 days of contracting hiv??)..had loose stool initially (may be due to immense tension)

as time fly by ..
i have accepted myself as a HIV patient..(though i am nt sure abt that).
my tension has diminished to some extent...and neuropathy was non exitent after a week or so from probable exposure

today nearly two and a half month has passed by, after that masturbation (current date: 9th NOV 2010).....
my fever like sensation still persists...i have developed tonsilities which started troubling me more from mid october
i read in wikipedia that acute symptoms start from 14-28 days of exposure to HIV and persists for 1 month at maximum.
my questn is why am i not reaching the asymptotic stage of HIV( if i really have HIV) after nearly 3 months??
i am bearing this fever like sensation and tonsilities for 3 months..which is frustrating??
can the cause be any another infection??such as mononucleosis etc etc? or any autoimmune disease due to high tension(which i suffered a lot in the 1st month)
my frnd is yet healthy....he is a cool guy and doesnt gets tensed anyway

.
i do appreciate this community
looking forward for ur help..and advice
thank u very much

*You should have done atleat some more online research about HIV/ADIS and how its pass on..

my frnd is yet healthy....he is a cool guy and doesnt gets tensed anyway
*You are also must be healthy but your anxiety no reason.

he uses a kind of oil to strengthen his penis(as he claims)... so i tried it on my penis...and Masturbated few minutes later..

*HIV virus cant live outside of the human body and particulary not in your friend's oil even if he infected/contaminated with his pre ejaculatory fluid. HIV pass on by sex intercourse like vaginal/anal sex with infected person or sharing drug needle, unsertizle

All your symptoms are anxiety nothing else. Educated yoursefl more about all STD.
