Re: Kinda worried...
No problem. And remember, if it does turn out positive, HIV is a very manageable disease. We have lots of highly active retroviral medications that make HIV virtually undetectable. Many HIV patients have been alive for 20+ years and are still perfectly healthy.
Also, the thing about lymph nodes is that they really are the most broad symptom, believe it or not. You can get swollen lymph nodes from pretty much anything. Yes, HIV can cause swollen lymph nodes, but so can things like minor infections, the cold, influenza, strep, mono, cancer, and sometimes they swell up for what seems to be no reason at all. It is simply your bodies natural reaction to an infection.
Just don't worry, I know that can be hard but remember, worrying isn't going to help your situation.
