I've had an oral yeast infection for 4 days, I took Difucan

This answer was rated:

I've had an oral yeast infection for 4 days, I took Difucan the third day which that night I suffered with night sweats, muscle weakenss, possible low grade fever now for 2 nights, I took a secord Difucan for the yeast today. My tongue has a white coating but otherwise I believe the oral problem is better. Could the night sweats, muscle weakness and low fever be a side effect of the Difucan, or more likely my fear is HIV. I will confess to a sexual experience with a woman I met at a bar 10 weeks ago. Could the HIV symptoms show in 10 weeks?
It is unlikely that you would already be manifesting HIV symptoms at this point. As such I would not worry that your oral yeast infection is secondary to having full blown AIDS.
That being said, you should be tested for HIV and other STDs and, if the yeast infection doesn't improve you should have a complete exam by your primary care MD.
Does this make sense to you?
