I am scared if i have HIV becasue i am feeling weakness which starts at around 8:30 am and then stays till the evening .
heaviness in the head is there and loss of balance

the weakness is throughout the day and sometimes it improves then again appears - I had sex with a prostitute around 2 months back , i have no other symptoms other than these ,

Perhaps it is stress/anxiety or lack of sleep? I didn't get tested for 6 years, but every few months I would experience fatigue similar to what you've described for 1-2 weeks. HIV symptoms usually come with a major flu/fever, but you should definitely get tested in a month just to be sure.

Symptoms are never really an indicator - the only true way to tell it with a test. Now, stress is a bad thing and can be very hard on your body. During my stressed time, I had fainting, dizziness, sore throat, rash, fever, diarrhea, you name it. I thought they were symptoms. Nope - test was negative. It was all stress!!! Test to put your mind at ease but your issues sound stress related to me. Take care!
