Hello, I am a 30 year old Male who is very concerned. I hope that someone can answer my question.
Exactly 93 days ago, I had sex with a woman who I now believe is/was a prostitute. I used a condom to have intercourse, however, she did give me oral (blowjob) without the condom. I have visited several doctors because following this encounter, I had a lot of pain in me testicle.
I was tested for common STDs such as chlamydia, gonorrhea. It's possible I was tested for more, I know that I saw 4 doctors and they all cultured my urine.
The pain in my testicles according to my doctors is either prostatitis or what they call muscle spasms in my anal / perineum region (I am slowly recovering for really horrible pain in anal/perineum area). Currently I am on a medication called Terazosin 5mg, which is helping my perineum pain.
I am very concerned about HIV and I am scared - About a week ago, I felt a tingling and itchy feeling in my throat, and now slowly over the past couple days, I feel like I have a sore throat or tonsil
. I have been reading a lot about symptoms, and I notice that when I swallow i feel like there is something there, and I think either my tonsil / lymph node is swollen BUT I REALLY DON'T KNOW.. Two weeks ago I was checked by my doctor physically and there was no swelling. But now suddenly last week I am feeling some very mild pain/bothersome in my throat and sometimes when I swallow i feel like it stings my ear.
1) Am I being overly paranoid about HIV?
2) What are the chances I could have gotten it based on the above encounter?
3) Are my symptoms alone indicative of HIV?
I can't explain how terrified I am, to the point where I don't even want to get tested - I feel like my life would be over.
