Hi I'm 37 I've been diagnosed with anxiety in the past and have had attacks, but haven't had one in a while. I recently had sex with two different guys in the last 3 months un-protected sex, after it was over with I started thinking what if i became infected with HIV, well a couple of days ago I was talking with a friend well a boyfriend we had broke up for those three months. I began re-searching signs and symptoms of HIV. I felt my lymp node under my arm let him touch it and it swollen up, last week it felt like something is stuck in my throat and my chest hurt do I have HIV.:(

  • HiIf you had normal sex then it is very unlikely you have contracted HIV.However if you had rough sex with bleeding and/or anal sex then there is a chance.From unprotected normal sex you are more likely to contract any of the STDs and a few of these will give you enlarged lynph nodes.There is even a STD ( a rare one) that will give you VERY enlarged nodes in the groin and these enlarged lymph nodes are very painful.To put your mind at rest, I would recommend testing in a walk-in STD clinic. Anxiety can cause weird symptoms too.
