A:   Hello
Thanks for the query.
Since you have had all the relevant tests for knowing the STD status, including HIV there is nothing to worry so much. The symptoms you described are most likely due to an acute viral infection and may not be an STD. It's better to get a thorough body check up done by a physician and get started on a specific medication for your condition. Avoid unprotected intercourse and to be double sure get your partner evaluated for an STD.Consult a psychiatrist for counselling in case you get very anxious with this.
Hope this helped
Regards
