I performed oral sex on a female unprotected 5 days ago. Yesterday, I felt my lymph nodes in my neck swollen, with a slight sore throat. I get chills/sweats, but my temperature is fine. I'm worried I have acute HIV.

In brief: Probably not

it would be rare for HIV to cause symptoms so quickly after transmission, and symptoms are more likely related to a cold or respiratory virus.
However, it would be a good idea to be tested for studs regularly if having unprotected sex
