regards from india

Yep swollen lymph nodes are palpable, however if you are trying to relate it to symptoms of is quite incorrect. Swollen lymph nodes are indeed a symptom of HIV, however ARS symptoms are concurrent and general lymp node swelling is experienced i.e lymph nodes in your neck,groin, armpits would swell together.

guessing your HIV status based on your symptoms is not a good idea, testing gives you a definitive answer.
