Brain Trauma: There are a number of possible reasons for inflammation of the brain. I would hope that you are getting or have gotten a full work up with a real physician to know the cause of your troubles. Hiv infection takes about three weeks to spread throughout the body. There is no way to have symptoms of any HIV illness in just two days after exposure. See comments for next...

One can prevent HIV infection. The doctor has 72 hours after an exposure to get a patient on the prevention treatment. MIssing this miracle would be very sad after an exposure. If you are not sure you got HIV then you need the better HIV RNA test that can be 100% accurate at 21 days after exposure.
