sleepless nights, help please.

Jan 12, 2013

I have not been involved in any kind of sexual activities. I am 21 and still a virgin. After exactly 1 month of my haircut I had got cough and mild headache which I felt only when coughing. Before the day I got this symptoms I have had cool drinks and its winter here. My workplace has AC which increased my cough little bit and after 3 days I got mild fever which was lasted on that day only after medication. I feel my lymph node on my right side of neck(back) is enlarged little. I don't know whether the barber had changed the blade in the razor(straight razor) but I checked whether I had any cut after coming home. I didn't have any cut I checked it while bathing also by applying soap everywhere. I didn't feel any burn. After 9 days everything is fine except with the lymph node. It has been 6 days since my lymph node has enlarged. But I can't feel the enlargement just by touching it. I had to turn right side to feel the little enlargement. I am not getting sleep and I couldn't concentrate on my work. please help me.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

You do not have HIV. Your haircut has nothing to do with HIV. If you are plagued by thoughts like these often then I would suggest talking with a therapist, counselor, or even a trusted friend.

In health,
