HI, i'm an 18 yr old male in the philippines, i had unprotected sex 4 weeks ago with an 18 yr old girl (yeah, unprotected.. real stupid.. anywayz..), i was asymptomatic the following days.. but after a week, i got dysuria and had urethral discharge.. so i got tested for gonorrhea and it came out positive.. so i took ceftrioxone and doxycyclin, and was cured..

but 7 days ago, i started having flu-like symptoms.. runny nose, cough, mild fever, sore throat, and oddly enough, night sweats.. which got me kinda scared.. then i started reading about HIV, and the day after, i had muscle pains and difficulty in swallowing.. and now i have abdominal pain, foot pain, and difficulty in breathing too..!

i had an HIV test yesterday and came back as non-reactive.. but its only been 4 weeks so i know that it doesn't mean anything.. my doctor told me not 2 think about it, that its only the flu.. but last time i checked, the flu doesn't give you abdominal pain and diarrhea.. plz help..!! i cant sleep and study anymore.. i cant even tell my parents coz i don't know how they'd take it...! plz.. could i have HIV?? or is anxiety playing a major role..??
