In brief: For sure not HIV

The 4th generation HIV blood tests are among the most accurate tests ever developed, for any infection.
Negative results more than 4 weeks after the last possible exposure are 100% proof against HIV infection. Therefore, test results always overrule exposure history and symtplms. "2 mild swollen nodes" is not consistent with HIV -- but even if it was, your test results prove HIV isn't the cause.
