What causes tongue coating with stomach discomfort and sore throat?

i am worried out of my head, and too scared to get tested so i am going to try to get some peace of mind from one of these forums. here's how it started i received unprotected oral sex from a prostitute. about a week later, i had a high fever without any symptoms other than fatigue. i got better, but about two weeks later i started coughing. i had a cronic cough for about two months, didn't think anything about it. then, one day i noticed a white coating on my tongue and started looking these symptoms up. i freaked out. about a couple of months with only the tongue problem and a lot of hours of research on the internet i was getting symptom after symptom. the one that is the most disturbing is my CONSTANT stomach growling. all day long, especially when i am laying down. so it's been about five months and i still have these two symptoms, stomach growling and white coating on tongue, and a mild sore throat which is worse in the morning. had some standard blood tests everything came up fine, which makes me worry even worse. i was prescribed nexium for acid reflux. from all of this, and my internet research i think i could have: -GERD -Irritable Bowel Syndrome -Oral THRUSH -Stress/anxiety -HIV (hope not) -Allergies -coeliac disease Plus, I have a huge canker sore on my lower lip for about a week now. Thank You!

I can understand your concern about various complaints related to the tongue, mouth, stomach and chest. Surfing the net and thinking will not help. Consult the physician immediately and get thorough examination and investigations and get the perfect diagnosis and then you may get proper treatment from the physician. Do not wait... just consult the expert.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
