Hi,

Your symptoms can be symptoms of HIV but it does not confirm the infection though. Please get yourself tested for HIV infection to confirm on your status.

These symptoms are seen in common cold and flu as well.

Always practice safe sex.

I wish you good health.

Regards,

Hello,
History noted. There is very remote chance for these symptoms to be the manifestations of HIV.
Kindly try to avoid such contacts in future. Approach a HIV awareness center, get a session of councelling from the health worker. If you still wanted to find out whether you have acquired the virus, subject yourself to the screening ELISA test as well as confirmatory PCR technique to rule out the presence of HIV.
Good Day.
