Not NGU or HIV: NGU cannot do this. Acute HIV could, but only in the first 2-4 weeks, and would also cause sore throat, fever, generalized lymph node enlargements, and/or skin rash. Further, HIV testing overrules everything else. Even with typical symptoms, negative test beyond 6-8 weeks proves HIV isn't the cause. And yes, most of this could be psychological -- anxiety, depression, etc. Consider counseling.
