Help! - Are these symptoms????

I'm going out of my mind here!!! i had a test done about 4 weeks after possible exposure and it came back negative, i'm having a follow up in 2 weeks (making it 3 months).

After about 2 weeks of my test i started getting sore ears so i thought that my glands were causing havoc. The doctor said he felt none and said it was a sympton of bad sinus. i then did get sinusitus which lasted about 4 days. my ears are still sore and feel like i've been underwater or changing altitude.

I wake up with a sore throaght but that goes away as the day goes on.

I've fealt pain in my groin but cant feel anything swollen so i dont know if its just my mind playing tricks on me.

No flu, fever or weight loss. Woke up last night a bit sweaty but after i got into cooler clothes, i was fine. What exactly are night sweats?

Had a mouth ulcer for 2 days.

My exposure was this: used condoms but not during oral (no semen though)

As you can see, i'm going crazy with stress and need someones honest opinion:AM I SYMPTOMATIC?

Bz, it sounds like you just have the flu. I doubt that you have anything to worry about, but the symptoms and signs that develop within 2-4 weeks of being infected include the following:
• Fever
• Malaise
• Rash
• Joint pain
• Swollen lymph glands
This will clear up after 3 to 14 days and it is usually followed by seroconversion within 1 to 3 months. If you have more questions please post them as a new question to ensure that I receive them. Good luck.
