Stress can do a lot of harm to the body.
Test and be done with it. Get a quick oral test and you should know withint minutes.

Yes, stress is bad for you, particularly your heart.

You have no reason to be scared to test. You either have HIV or you don't, taking the test doesn't influence that.

Your test result will almost certainly be negative, anyway.
