Two days after I had unsafe sex with a woman, My neck started

This answer was rated:

Two days after I had unsafe sex with a woman, My neck started to become stiff and shoulders aches. Is this a sign of HIV?

Welcome and thank you for your question.

No, this is unlikely to be a symptom of HIV.

The first signs of HIV usually occur after about 2-4 weeks of exposure - the signs are similar to a flu with fevr, cough and cold, sore throat etc. Muscular pain, similar to that of flu can also occur - but these will occur all over the body , not limited to the shoulders and neck.

I hope this helps.
