Patient :Hello, I was recently studying in Macau, China and I am from the U.S., but about 2 weeks before I left I had protected sex (with condom) with two different girls who were both a little sketchy. Exactly 2 weeks after, I started getting pain in my tonsils and it felt kind of like tonsillitis and my lymph nodes were enlarged. Then 2 days after that I no longer had pain in my throat, but I noticed I had a really painful canker sore on my gums above my teeth and a bunch of raised bumps on the back of my tounge. I went to the doctor and she looked at it and said oh this is tonsillitis. But my throat didn't hurt at all and I was experiencing all of the same symptoms of HIV. I am scared I have HIV.
