whats wrong???

i recently got on birth control to prevent getting pregnant because my boyfriend thinks he want a child but i am not ready for that responsibility.I chose depo provera because i knew the pills would be alot of work,and i would forget to take them everyday. when i started i had a period for 2 months straight i thought it was normal but it turns out i was only suppose to spot. my lymp nodes started to swell up to 4 cm. they cause me constant pain. i began to lose weight, my migraines became 3 times worse, i started throwing up, and feeling depressed. now little white bumps have been coming up all over my body. my doctor scared me when she asked did i have HIV. i have no other type of STD. the doctor cannot tell me whats wrong with me. i go to the doctor constantly. i have been tested for cancer and was told @ 1 time i had cancer cells and then i went back and they didnt find anything. my doctor did find cysts under my arms and one in my breast. What is really wrong do i have HIV, cancer, or is it side effects oF the depo??
