If I have a sore throat caused by acute HIV, would it be accompanied by other symptoms as well? Such as fever?

In brief: Get Tested

Acute HIV infection presents with symptoms including: fever, swollen lymph nodes, sore throat, rash, myalgia/arthralgia, headache and painful skin/mucous ulcerations, although you may have no or only very mild symptoms.
Usual time from HIV exposure to symptoms onset is 2-4 weeks. Consider if you have had a recent high-risk exposure or have had a recent STD. If any concern get yourself tested.
