Response from Dr. Young
So many people worry about this question that we generally don't answer the "do I have HIV?" question on this Forum on Choosing HIV Medications (there's a dedicated Forum at TheBody for this purpose).
It's entirely normal for people (negative and positive) to develop various symptoms such as sore throat, swollen neck glands, etc.
I would agree with my friend and colleague, Dr. Maniar. No need for further testing, unless you have had any other potential sexual or drug exposures (in which case, I always recommend ~annual testing anyways).
