4 month negative rapid hiv test but still having symptoms

I have taken 2 oral swab tests at around the 4 month mark and i did a rapid blood test at 4.5 month mark. ALL tests came back negative but i am still having alot of symptoms such as swollen lymphnodes..several types of the skin rashes involved with HIV, fatigue, blurry vision, joint and muscle pain, dry mouth, itchy skin and scalp and dry itchy nose....also I have eye infections and post nasal drip not responding to antibiotics. QUESTION IS....how accurate can these tests results be despite my symptoms..  I tested well after the window period of three months.  ALSO i was given a blood test right around the 3 month mark.... i got them done on a tuesday afternoon....went to the ER on thursday for dehydration and general illness....they pulled my results that night...CAN the ELISA HIV1/2 blood test be ready in 48 hours......my test was negative then. I feel as tho my rapid tests are not accurate and my blood test was not finished and pulled uo but inexperienced ER Staff that does not usually deal with HIV..

your test PROVES that you dont have hiv.

if you are having health concerns...see your dr.   it's not hiv related ! ! !
