Hi No, you can not get HIV from touching or using an inanimate object. Transmission of HIV from a contaminated surface would require massive exposure to blood or other infected liquid for a prolonged period of time (for example: a blood soaked shirt of a health care worker that remained while she performed CPR). See HIV101 for how HIV is and is not transmitted. Once HIV leaves the body it begins to die and becomes unable to infect. I imagine what happened is you picked up a cold or the flu and your body is fighting this. If your symptoms continue or get worse I recommend that you follow up with your health care provider for evaluation.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
