Your negative HIV tests out to six months are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV testing is warranted.
Masturbation is not considered a risk for HIV transmission/acquisition. Even if HIV-infected semen was squirted all over you, HIV cannot penetrate intact skin.
If you feel sick, see your doctor for an evaluation. However, please note one thing is absolutely certain: HIV is not the cause!
