Brief Answer:
It could be Acid peptic disease.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
The symptoms that you have described are not related to HIV.
As you are tested Negative for HIV,you can feel relaxed.
Bloating in the abdomen is most likely to be due to Acid peptic disease.I prescribe Proton pump inhibitor like RABEPRAZOLE along with prokinetic Levosulpiride to my patients with similar complaints.
Bubble growling can be due to Irritable bowel syndrome caused by Anxiety.Please relax.Do regular exercise. I prescribe Pre and probiotic capsule to my patients if there is no improvement after lifestyle modifications.
Please consult your doctor regularly for any change of medication.
Nothing to worry.
Hope I answered your query. If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.

Brief Answer:
Neuropathy also is not related to HIV.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Pins and needles are due to neuropathy and is not related to HIV.
HIV when it is symptomatic, we call AIDS.Here , the immune system is lowered and leads to opportunistic infections.
That doesn't mean each and every complaint is related to AIDS.It takes many years to develop AIDS after acquiring HIV.
As your two tests were negative, nothing to worry.
Western Blot test is reliable and you can get it done and be relaxed.
Hope I answered your query.
