IS THIS HIV INFECTION?

Here is the story...

March 4 - Protected sex with ex.
March 10 - Loose stool, diarrhea, stomach pains
March 13 - Noticed a really painful bump (or boil) on back...never had one before..kinda looked like a spider bite
March 28 - Headache, loose stool(and black stool) and stomach pain and digestive problems persists...no more diarrhea. Stiff neck, lymph nodes under chin are tight, scratchy throat
April 4th - All previous symptoms persist, Now nodes under arms are both painful. No swelling. Random pains throughout body..(muscle pains in arms, legs). Burning sensation on back... Boil on back has long since "burst" but it itches now and is not completely head. Also got a couple of really small bumps (1 on torso and on back) that kinda itch and are like open wounds.
April 5th - HIV test negative.
April 15th today - All symptoms still are present. No relief.

SCARED TO DEATH AT THE MOMENT

What are the chances this is the initial stages of an HIV infection? Could this be anything else?

You don't have an HIV concern, you never had an exposure.

You say this because I had protected sex with her. I understand that. I know this question may sound strange...but does it matter that after I disposed of the condom I did not "wash up"...meaning her body fluids were on my body for most of the night....Does that matter at all?

No it doesn't matter. You do not have an HIV concern.
