Hi there. Ear infections with swollen glands are far more common than HIV. Similarly, stomach flu or food poisoning are far more common. So there are multiple benign explanations for your symptoms. Also, HIV risk from a single exposure is quite low. That said, it is important that you rule out the unlikely chance of HIV by getting tested. Recommendations include getting tested at 3 weeks and 3 months at least.
