rapid test etc

I have in the past 4 - 5 months developed the following

* white coated tongue
* stomach problem that just does not go away - stomach cramps
- stomach causing some sounds like grrr
- knetted rash - itchy
- weight loss
- knight sweats

My wife also had knight sweats, rash between the legs and stomach problems like above.

I took a rapid test and it was negative. I still experience the above symptoms. What could it be? Is the rapid test reliable? Is it ture that some people never develop antibodies which are supposed to be detected by the rapid test? and finally what is the most reliable form of test for HIV/AIDS
