If something as common as arthritis affected the results of hiv tests, don't you think the doctors and clinics giving the tests would have asked you if you had arthritis and factored that in?

I think a general rule that seems to be 100% true to me is that if you ask a question that contains the phrase "slow the production of antibodies" or "first or third generation test" then you do not have hiv and should quit obsessing about it.
