Normal, need test: This is the second time you've asked a similar question. Most people with HIV look healthy even with a weak immune system.

So is the muscle ache and joint pains symptoms in the late HIV stage or in aids? And what do people with aids look like?
Why do you ask?: You'll be an adult in a few years and you need to familiarize yourself with HIV. If you have only achey muscles and are not obviously sick, you do not have late HIV / AIDS, period. This would be a great time to talk with an informed adult (maybe even Dad) about loving safely, and to get your first HIV screen from your personal physician -- something most young adults should get yearly. ...Read more
Had sex-Balanitis on penis head, non painful white spots on tonsils won't go away, red spots look like molluscum base of penis. 3.5 weeks total. HIV?
Get examined: None of this suggests any STD, unless you have molluscum contagiosum. If you do, maybe from some other exposure; 3.5 weeks probably is too soon. The chance of HIV is low and your symptoms don't suggest it. But since you're worried, and have possible MC, you need to see a doctor or clinic for personal exam and STD/HIV testing. You'll never get final answers online or by self testing. Good luck. ...Read more

Possibly.: A person who is diagnosed with HIV and who gets started on antiretroviral medications early and who takes the medications faithfully and who takes care of him/herself well may live for many decades with the infection (into sixties or seventies or perhaps even longer) and die of something else.
