I have had a sore throat and a shaking feeling in my arms and hands for about nine months now The sore throat is always the worst in the morning and the shakiness in my limbs never goes away I have also had a burning discomfort around my groin and penis area I am worried it is HIV I had sex with a girl about a year ago and the condom slipped off I also took an HIV test 16 weeks after the incident that came back negative but I'm still worried

An HIV screening test done at least three months (12 weeks) after a possible exposure is considered to be both definitive and conclusive in terms of ones status in regards to HIV.

In other words, your test done 16 weeks after this event has clearly shown you are HIV negative.

Whatever is causing your symptoms has nothing to do with HIV.

Were you tested for any other STD's? HIV is actually a fairly difficult STD to pick up; others are far easier.
