Pinning sensation, is it HIV related?

I had unprotected sex with csw on 18th January.
Except cold and cough I did not experience any other major symptoms. I also had almost 1 month laryngitis. I tested after 30 days and 44 days post exposure by EIA 3rd generation antibody test and results came negative.

I am now at 96 days post exposure and after 4 days I am going for another EIA antibody test. From yesterday I am suffering from tingling sensation (mostly pinning). almost through out body. The sensations are quite mild.

Can somebody please tell me is it HIV symptoms? I know this kind of sensation can happen at the later stage of HIV.

Please reply.

Thanks for your reply. But throgh internet I came to know that its called Paresthesia and this can be one of the HIV symptoms.

Also please tell me how reliable is 44 days EIA 3rd generation antibody test.

Best regards.

HIV is not diagnosed by symptoms only testing and testing at 3 month would be conclusive.

Thanks for your reply.
But just one question to get relax from the very recent anxiety. Anyways I am going for retest after 4 days.

1. Can Paresthesia happen at the initial HIV infection?
2. How reliable 44 days EIA antibody test?
