Response from Dr. Sullivan

Your symptoms are not suggestive of HIV, however, if you are concerned that you may have been exposed to HIV you should ask your physician for an HIV test; if you don't have a physician you can contact your local health department and ask where you can obtain a HIV test; HIV is a shortened form for human immunodeficiency virus which is the virus which causes AIDS which is a stage of the chronic disease caused by HIV; everyone who has AIDS has been infected with HIV.
