Hello Dr,

Apologies for this long post but the Symptoms really killing me.

Let me start with some details.
I had exposure of Unprotected Vaginal with a female about 9 weeks ago whom i didn't know and met through one of my cousin.
She lives alone and drinks every night and had multiple sexual partners.

Before having the intercourse she herself told me that she is HIV negative and got tested yesterday which gave me suspicion.

I started feeling worried soon after that day a Tingling sensation on the TIP of my Penis.

After approx after 2 weeks and Early Middle of 3rd week -
Tuesday onwards I started having some vertigo like feeling with Dizziness with Heavy Eyes, Warm Forehead and Face and loss of energy from the start of third week.
Checked Fever with Thermometer came to be 97.8 in most of the week.
Had Diarrhea on Saturday of 3rd Weekend - Once on Lunch Time. Body felt Feverish. Checked Temperature with Thermometer once again- 98.1
Had Diarrhea again on Sunday following Day - Once in Lunch Time.Body felt Feverish. Checked Temperature with Thermometer once again- 98.4-99.1
NO RASH or Swollen Glands in this week.

Start of 4th Week:
On Monday - Saturday I was perfectly back to my normal self.
Wondered if that was Acute HIV Symptoms (ARS) which is typically in 2-4 weeks time.

Star of Week 5:
Started coming down with Dizziness again with Heavy Eyes, Warm Forehead and Face which stayed there for 3-4 days Checked Fever but again fluctuated 97.4 - 98.1 with no other symptoms. Rest of the 5th week I was fine again BUT noticed some Wetness on my Forehead and Neck for one or 2 mornings when I woke up. Itching still continues sometimes have needlish pain on the Tip of my penis and tingling in Urethra.
Red Pimples/more like Bumps Popped up on Left Shoulder.

Start of Week 6:
Came down with Dizziness with Heavy Eyes, Warm Forehead and Face on and off after every 2-3 days in that week. Checked Fever but again fluctuated 97.2 - 98.9 with Itching on Genitals and Body for most of the days and nights.
Also, noticed some Wetness on my Forehead and Neck for one or 2 mornings when I woke up.
Itching still continues sometimes have needlish pain on the Tip of my penis and tingling in Urethra
Red Pimples/more like Bumps still there.

Start of Week 7:
Had Dizziness for Most of the days again with Heavy Eyes, Warm Forehead and Face but no other symptoms except noticed some Wetness on my Forehead and Neck for one or 2 mornings when I woke up. Itching still continues sometimes have needlish pain on the Tip of my penis and tingling in Urethra.
Red Pimples/more like Bumps still there.

Start of Week 8:
Had Dizziness with Heavy Eyes, Warm Forehead and Face for just the weekend Saturday and Sunday
Itching still continues sometimes have needlish pain on the Tip of my penis and tingling in Urethra.
Red Pimples/more like Bumps still there along with couple of new ones on Right Sholder and chest.

Week 9: Went healthy But Itching still continues sometimes have needlish pain on the Tip of my penis and tingling in Urethra. Red Pimples/more like Bumps still there along with new ones

NO RASH or HIGH FEVERs (low grade fevers) No Swollen Glands during these 9 weeks.

During these sickening Episodes I started googling the symptoms and I came across this website where some ARS (Acute HIV Infection) Symptoms were listed which exactly looked like mine which got me extremely worried.

Are they HIV Symptoms including NIGHT Sweats OR straight fully blown AIDS?

I am worried till grave!!
