HIV testing: If in doubt about your HIV status - please get checked. Acute HIV can present something like 'mono' with fevers, sore throat, malaise (feeling wiped out), lymph node enlargement and possibly other symptoms. The flu is easily checked for in a doctors office or urgent care center. Testing for both of these illnesses is easy. Why not get this done now and stop worrying?
