Ars symptoms but negative fourth generation at eight weeks.

I had unprotected receptive anal sex two weeks later I got a lot of ars including rash, fever, headache, fatigue, joint pain. But my partner tested nagative one day before our sex. I tested with 3rd generation rapid blood test at 19 days and 35 days after expose and result were negative. I tested at eight weeks with four generation and result was negative. I wait to test again at three months. Why symptoms appear while tests were negative. Could be false negative? Let say, if my result at eight weeks is surely 100% accurate and conclusive, that could be mean i am HIV negative, therefor what cause all these symptoms?

You had a fourth gen at 8 weeks of exposure. It would have detected the p24 antigen by that time and is a good result. Your symptoms could be either coincidence or exposure to your partners non-hiv viruses that we all carry on our bodies and your body reacted to it. Test again at 3 months for your final result.

Will result change at three months or not?

Nobody on here can give you that guarantee, only a qualified medical professional would be able to make that assessment, many HIV specialist consider the 4th generation test conclusive at 28 days. It would be unlikely to change after an 8 week negative, but as per the answer above have a conclusive test in 4 weeks.
