Response from Dr. Henry
THose symptoms are very nonspecific and wouldn't generally me a signal that you are HIV infected. The major risk for HIV-unprotected sex with an HIV infected person- is still not fully appreciated. If there is a chance that you have been truly exposed to HIV in that manner (or sharing needles) then you should get tested. The symptoms you describe are not a sign of HIV in the vast majority of situations. KH
