Hiv symptoms

Hey guys I had a post a few weeks back. I developed cold like symptoms runny nose,sneezing,coughing, and sore throat about a week and half after unprotected vaginal intercourse with a girl of uknown status. I started reading symptoms of hiv online and think i freaked myself out. I went to dr. about three weeks after exposure he said it was allergies and even gave me a wbc count to calm my nerves it was normal. Then at 4 weeks i got tested it was neg. and kinda felt a little better but still reading stuff on internet I scared myself again. So at 7 weeks i got tested it was neg. i felt alot better after that its now week 8 and I still can get it completely of my mind. My lower back and groin hurt now could this be from all the stress also i do have a physical job and just started working out again.  Im trying to be rational but it is just such a scary thing i cant get it off my mind. Is this a common problem people having symptoms and relating it to hiv or are these symptoms reason for concern? Is the 7 week test a good indicator?  Do you think im over reacting and causing these symptoms from stress I prob. think about hiv 20 hours a day know. I cant sleep it is just really a scary feeling.
