Your "around 20" negative HIV-antibody tests out to day 159 plus your undetectable HIV plasma RNA PCR viral load test on days 45 and 73 are definitive, conclusive, WOO-HOO-able and extremely excessive! Exactly what part of "HIV negative" are you having difficulty understanding?
I cannot diagnose the cause of your symptoms over the Internet, but what I can do with absolutely certainty is advise what is not causing them: it's not HIV! No way. No how. No additional HIV testing is warranted. You've had way, way, way too many already!
Could anxiety and stress be contributing to your symptoms? Absolutely!
