Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have unprotected sex with prostitute 6 years back and have symptoms similar to HIV .You have done screening test (ELISA ) test which is reported to be negative.

Since you had contacts 6 years back and your HIV test is negative you need not worry about having HIV.However please get Western blot test done to confirm the results of the ELISA test.
Please consult qualified general Physician for your symptoms and further treatment.
