Sometimes people getting leaning a certain direction, it's hard to correct it. With those test negative, I would say with almost 100% certainty you are not suffering from HIV, but more a mental deal. For some people futher testing can help, over come this fear that is very hard to overcome. For others consuling may help. You will have to find what works best for you.

Good Luck.

Test at 6 months if you want to ease your mind, however I doubt if your results will change. Letting go of symptoms can be a major task and it helps to work it out with someone. Have you seen a counselor yet?

Try to believe your results. Have you spoken with your doctor regarding your on-going symptoms? I feel the desperation in your post and I hope you will be able to move on after you take your test at month 6.
