All ARS symptoms - very scared!!

so about 5 weeks ago, i was in amsterdam and had protected sex with a female prostitute. she ut the condom off and took it off. sex only lasted roughly 5-7 minutes. i probable penetrated her roughly 20 times. i was very nervous so the sex was a little rough in the sense that i penetrated her hard and fast. everything seemingly went fine and i did not get the sense that the condom broke as i did not feel any sensation at all at any point during sex.

however the day after i started panicking and have been getting ARS symptoms ever since.
- lost about 10 pounds (I had been traveling europe a month after that and did a lot pf walking not to mention i was **** scared for my life for an entire month and panicked

-loss of appetite (thought it is from anxiety)

-no real diahrea

-no real fever (or at least it wasn't obvious to me)

-recently been getting mild headaches and a mild sore throat 5 weeks after exposure

-no swollen lymphnodes

- got night sweats but i put that down to the hostel i was staying at where the room had a tempature of 80 degrees (night sweats stopped as soon as i left the hostel (stayed at hostel for 2 weeks)

-fatigued but i put this down to all the traveling i did, lack of sleep (<6 hours a night for a month straight and continuing, as well as anxiety

-sore back muscles, joints are fine

Im extremely worried and have been panicking for the last 5 weeks, is it possible i could have gotten hiv or could these symptoms be down to anxiety (I'm mostly worried about the weight loss). i got tested at 4 weeks and it was negative. what do you guys think???
