Still possible: You could have done the test too early. Repeat it 1 week after the first to be sure. If it is still negative at that point and you are still having the symptoms you need to see your primary care provider or a gynecologist to help figure out what is going on and get treatment. Best of wishes.

If your symptoms were caused by pregnancy then this implies that the pregnancy hormones are causing them. If the hormones were high enough to cause symptoms then they would also be high enough to be detected on a pregnancy test.
