    Postnasal drip and fever for over a month

    Hi all, I'm panicking. I had a weird virus that started about a month ago. I had a horrible sore throat (worst in my life), a fever and a general feeling of achiness. It got a lot better, but I've had a lingering fever of around 99.4 for over a month now. Today it started going up again and my throat hurts. Ive been having post nasal drip as well. I went to the doctor and he said it could just be the start of some seasonal allergies, which an oftentimes piggyback off a viral infection. I just don't know. I have a history of panicking over HIV and I'm worried I've been infected. I work in an HIV lab which makes matters worse. I dont work with live virus, but it's in the room next to me. The most dangerous thing I work with is proviral DNA. Ive been tested twice for HIV over the last month, but nothing. Should I be really worried about this? Is it normal to have a virus that lasts this long, or does this seem consistent with allergies. I really need some advice because my friends and family are starting to ignore me sine I ask them too much and have been panicking.

    Definitely could be allergies. If gargling with warm salt water helps the sore throat, it's definitely is allergy related.
