Thank you for your question.I understand that your main concern may be HIV.The most common cause of the symptoms that you are having is a viral infection in the throat that can cause a sore throat along with swollen and painful nodes in the neck.Acute retroviral syndrome does not present so quickly with such symptoms.I would not worry whatsoever.I understand that it is your anxiety that is getting the better of you at the moment.This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
