A negative HIV-antibody test outside the window period (three years certainly qualifies!) trumps symptoms each and every time. As for what to do, I have two suggestions:
1. Stop worrying about HIV. The evidence is overwhelming and irrefutable that you are HIV negative. No further HIV testing is warranted.
2. See a general internal medicine doctor (internist) for evaluation and management of any ongoing symptoms. If no physical cause can be found for your symptoms, you should be evaluated for psychosomatic illness (which causes very real symptoms!) related to your anxiety over HIV.
