I recently came down with shingles. I tested negative for HIV 10 weeks after unprotected oral sex. Can shingles occur as an HIV related symptom this early on if I was infected?

I am not aware of shingles being a symptom of primary HIV infection. It is highly unlikely that, if you had been infected, you would be immune compromised enough to develop shingles in the time frame you are talking about.
