HIV negative: The HIV test is the only one that matters. If you were tested long enough after the last possible exposure (4-8 weeks, depending on the particular test or combination of tests), you don't have it. It was pointless to have the other tests. Nobody without a positive HIV test should be tested for CD4 etc. Your results are fine and don't indicate any health problem. Stop testing.
