I had sex with a gay male and the condom broke during the act. 2 weeks later my armpits ached and nausea began- I could not find the lymph nodes and the pain disappeared in 4-5 days- Have had some neuropathy type symptoms in my hands and feet that lasted 2-3 weeks- No temp or rash- When should I get tested for Hiv? and are these symptoms indicitive of acute hiv infection?? 56 yo male Thank you
