Thanks for writing to us.
The generalised aches and pain in your joints is less likely to be due to HIV infection. Still to allay your anxiety it is best to get ELISA test done for screening. Generalized viral infections are more likely to cause such symptoms and these do resolve spontaneously in 4-6 weeks.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Thanks for your query.
they are not the symptoms of HIV but any time you have the disease as anal intercourse produce very high risk.
Do a ELISA and if positive do a PCR TEST for HIV.
