Your "symptoms" are in your head. The test is 100% reliable after all these years of correct diagnosis and no failures. Instead of relying on the reality of the test results, you are trusting your unreliable imagination so it is no wonder that you are anxious.
The "symptoms" you list are not from hiv, they are from your fertile imagination working you up into an anxiety state where you over-analyze everything your body does. You had all these "symptoms" before, but knew they were nothing so ignored them, but now you are searching for clues to prove something is wrong.
Read this thread. http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Anxiety/Why-cant-I-let-go-Please-help/show/2073933?personal_page_id=308570 Same issue as you have, worked up over hiv to the point he was planning a new lifestyle when the reality is he doesn't even have hiv. The only difference between him and you is you actually had a test done which makes it even easier for you to look at your situation this moment and convince yourself that you don't have hiv. Are you convinced yet?

I 100% agree with birdie... Anxiety and stress can cause SO MANY symptoms it is almost un-real... It can also cause you to focus on your "symptoms" which you are doing, and which I always do too.  Hopefully you can trust us, your tests, and your doctors and move past this!
