Do u have any risk factors for developing HIV? U can retest yourself after 6 months , if that is negative too, then definately u don,t have HIV, provided u don't get exposed to it in that 6 months.
Burning of palms and soles can be because of multivitamin deficiency.

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
How old are you? Are you diabetic or hypertensive? Are you on any medications? If your Reports have come out as HbsAg and HIV I and II Negative, then you can just relax. If you are diabetic, the burning sensation could be due to Peripheral Neuropathy. Kindly get yourself examined by a Neurologist, so that he can examine you and rule out the exact cause. If necessary he can suggest you and get a Nerve Conduction Study done. If you are doubtful about HIV, repeat the test after 6 months to cross the Window Period for HIV testing.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

hi
u need not to worry as burning in palm and sole is not major indication of hiv and ur test results are normal
if u want to confirm it ,then do PCR test to detect hiv.
after doing it ,there will be no doubt .
u need to check ur vitamin b12 level also
