Hi The testing guidelines for HIV is to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 90 days, if this test is negative than so are you! I would recommend that you follow up with your health care provider for evaluation of the symptoms that you are experiencing, but with the HIV test coming back negative than the symptoms that you are experiencing are not due to HIV.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
