What do you call unprotected sex? As far as your symptoms go, they came on way to early to be related to HIV. Symptoms or the lack of symptoms is no way to tell if someone is infected or nor. If you say you just received a BJ then you weren't at risk, if you say you had unprotected vaginal sex, then you must test 12/13 weeks post exposure.

If by unprotected sex you mean intercourse without a condom then you need to have an HIV test done at 13 weeks after the most recent unprotected incident.

That's the key issue as far as HIV is concerned. 

None of your symptoms are in anyway HIV-specific. If they persist you should discuss them with your doctor.

As long as you use condoms everytime you can have as many partners as you want to whether they be pros or civilians and you will still be ok as far as HIV is concerned.

Let me know if I am missing something here.

Well, you still haven't answered my question.

But if you are having symptoms how about getting to your doctor and discussing them there instead of "just going crazy" and not doing anything about them?

That's my suggestion. Please advise what you're doing to help yourself.
