Hi Lal. I am unable to comment on the tests taken as I only know about the BioSURE HIV self test in enough detail however I would recommend taking the BioSure test at 82 days to confirm the negative test results. The symptoms you have described could be a cause of anything and it is unlikely to be HIV. At 82 days the BioSure self test will give you a conclusive negative test result. I hope this helps.
