And the symptoms you describe don't sound much like HIV anyway, which does not cause nasal congestion
, runny nose, cough, conjunctivitis, or hoarseness
. You had a garden variety respiratory virus, or maybe influenza.
So the answers are: 1) No, your fears of HIV are not warranted. 2) No, your symptoms don't suggest ARS. 3) Go to a mirror, look yourself in the eye, and say out loud 'I do not have HIV.' Do it 10 times. Then if you still are nervous, have an HIV test.
