Anxiety or Symptoms

25 days ago I had protected sex with a CSW worker, I first experience heart pain 7 days after exposure and now I’m experiencing muscle pain on my legs and arms. Pain come and goes , is this a symptom? Also my inner left thigh hurts and developed pain in my throat that comes and goes also. I thought I had no risk , I didn’t saw the condom rip or anything. I feel like I have contracted the virus

You had no risk because you used a condom. Symptoms are not used to diagnose HIV. Only risk factor, yours is Zero, and test results, which doesn't apply to you because you were not exposed to HIV, are used to determine whether someone is infected. Go see a doctor for your non-HIV symptoms if you're not feeling well.
