In brief: Usually not

There have been a few reports of HIV patients with this illness which has come and gone as HIV levels change.
It's quite common and by no means indicates you are infected. Savvy "health care consumers" get checked for HIV from time to time even if they're not doing risky things. Go ahead. Best wishes.

Many different causes described, HIV only rarely. Resolves in time, often a year.
