No.

An earache is not a sign of HIV>

But, if you had uprotected sex with someone who's status is not known by the lab, then you still need HIV testing.

But the earache has nothing to do with HIV>

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
