No, the antibody component is not "weaker" than that of a standard antibody test.  Both tests are accurate.  Your test was conclusive, again.

The fever is not related.  Your temp was about 99.5, that's not consistent with an ARS related fever anyway.  Fevers, when they are associated with a new HIV infection are almost always very high (above 101F).  What you describe (feeling warm inside) sounds like anxiety.

You need to put this behind you once and for all.  If you can't, get professional help.
