Protected vaginal intercourse and unprotected oral sex - risk and symptoms?

Hi, I am deeply concerned about the HIV test that I gave blood for currently. Totally paranoid, can't sleep and symptoms match so perfectly I have given up any hope for negative result. I had a protected vaginal intercourse and an unprotected oral sex from an escort in the middle of august. In the month of September I noticed my lipomas increasing on my body. One grew on jawbone so I got it checked by a doctor and he suggested that was not lipoma but mostly swollen lymph node as it decreased in size as well that was early october (7 weeks). Then I got rash on my back like 2 cms which soothes when I apply cream. On middle of october I got annual blood word done and also took flu shot and tdap vaccine. I got very tired that weak, extreme fatigue. Met doctor again and she suggested wait a week if symptoms improve. It did not I got an ultrasound done end of october , it noticed enlarged liver but nothing else. first week of november (11 weeks), doctor suggested I take hiv test as symptoms are very similar to hiv, I am not waiting for results but completely losing my mind over being positive. More read online about symptoms mine match with most of them. I get joint pains, sometimes shortness of breath. I am not sure about escort's status but I am very much afraid whether I caught anything and gave it to my wife in september when there were no symptoms and since I had protected sex I did not even think about catching it. Of course I am waiting for my test results which it seems would take a week as they do both elisa and western blot, but I would like to know your opinion about my situation.

He Didn't Tell ME

Hello,
I am nervous because I had oral sex with a man who was undetected for 30 years but he did not tell me until after it happened. He performed it on my penis and I only did it oral to his anus. We had a heavy make out session and he came on his body, but some of it got on me and I wiped it off with a towel. A week later I have some chest pain and my tongue is white with some bumps on the back of the tongue. Is it too late for prep?! What can I do?

Bleeding injection point and handles

In Semptember i was tested for hiv, they did a rapid test from the finger. I went out from the centre and a while later i threw away the gauze which protected the wound although i didn't check if the would was already dry. Later i touched a few things and when i came back for the results i touched the handle. What is the risk of the transmission if the point was still bleeding and on the handle was hiv? A few weeks after that i felt very bad and now i have sore throat, a strange,red rash on the thighs and back, a white layer in the throat. I had also swollen lymph nodes in the throat and pain on the surface of abdomen. I was tested 27 days after that again, 4 generation test combo and it was negative. Should i repeat after 12 weeks? Thanks for your time and answer.

I was mugged, should be tested?

Should I consider test if I were mugged by few guys and I get injury? My hand was covered with blood, I didn't see any blood from attacker, but due to fact that my hand was bleeding, I did not recognise if whole this blood was mine or could be mixed with someone else blood.

Should I be tested if I did not saw any large amount of others blood?

Sex with Female (possibly HIV positive)

Okay diving into the main part i had a unprotected sex with a girl...20 days ago.later i got so worried about hiv so i asked her if she had a past she told she always had protected sex and she told she had sex with a guy 4 days ago prior to me. I was told hiv transmission would be high in acute stage of infection. So my question if she was lying about the protected sex thing. Would she still transmit the virus at higher rate (because it has been just 4 days she might have got the virus) and she was so kind that she got herself tested (cmia methord which dignoses both ag and ab) on 19th day after she had sex with the other guy and result was negative i have done my dna proviral after 14 days of exposure and the result came negative .

Worried and Need Advice

I had protected vaginal sex with a CSW. On the 20th day, I got a negative result for 4th Gen Combo Ag/Ab lab blood test. Another negative result for Rapid 4th Gen Alere Combo on the 48th day. Do I need more testing? What is the likelihood after 3 months it will turn positive?
