Welcome to HCM.

Fever, head ache, nausea and burning sensation of the hands,back and feet are common to any type of fever or an infection. Earliest HIV manifestation are likely to occur after 4 weeks only.

Presence of any STD, including Chlamydial infection is likely to increase HIV transmission. Test for STD (Syphilis) becomes reliable only after 4 weeks after the sex contact and Test for HIV becomes positive in an infection only after 6 weeks may be delayed up to 12 weeks. Now you can go for HIV DNA PCR or P 24 Antigen tset by now it may be reliable.
God wishes.
