I'm really sorry you can't see a doctor right now, perhaps a free clinc? These types of questions can not be answered over the internet and your health is much too important to try.

Only testing can tell you if you have HIV, and you should also talk to someone about a complete STD panel.

In the event that you cannot see your doctor, and you have serious discomfort and feel the problem needs can go to the nearest emergency room. Thats what we do when there is a health crisis in our family.

Why can't you see a doctor now? Is there a Planned Parenthood clinic in your area? Ours offers free or low-cost testing for STDs, as well as free condoms & birth control.

As far as your symptoms go, they are not consistent with ARS, but if yu're not sure - GET TESTED!!!

Im no doctor but possibly herpes is your problem. Herpes isnt the same for everyone, it ranges from mild(dont know its there) to severe (cant even walk type) you also could be swelling becasue of a std.
