HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

i guess u have a anxiety or panic attack for having those sympthom,no testing is required for this incident,i see one person vote for testing ignored the poll.
u are safe.
best wishes.
