I messed up last weekend and had unprotected sex with

Patient : I messed up last weekend and had unprotected sex with a girl I met at the bar...and now 3 days latter I have a tight throat, not a sore throat but it feels like maybe swollen lymph nodes, tightness when I swallow and a general feeling of being rundown. I might be being a hypochondriac but I'm worried about herpes. So my question is this, if it is herpes when do the lesions occur in relationship to the flu like symptoms? Also can you get herpes and have no symptoms other than flulike symptoms? I'm not the type of guy do usually go home with girls I don't know and I recently had an STD test abot a month ago and tested negative for HSV1 and HSV2. Thanks in advance.
