I don't know who your source was, but I can't find a thing on the net about the effects of Reiter's Syndrome on an HIV test. Considering there isn't much if anything, I would assume it must not be a problem, otherwise either this site, or John Hopkins site would have had at least a line about the complications of the test when you have Reiter's.

You may also want to test for other STD's if your doctor didn't do that 5 years ago. See the Q&A below:
