Rare symptoms on tongue but HIV negative

Here's my story:

In February 2012 I received unprotected oral sex (a girl performed ******** on me) followed by intercourse (condom was used for intercourse from start to end).

Two to three weeks after this incident, I started to experience some very strange symptoms, including stiff neck, a swollen lymph node in the neck and urinary track infection. I was convinced I was infected with HIV.

However, I did the following HIV tests up to 9 months post exposure with the following results:

5 weeks: Vironostika Uni-Form II Ag/Ab - Negative
9 weeks: Vironostika Uni-Form II Ag/Ab - Negative
4 months: Vironostika Uni-Form II Ag/Ab - Negative
7 months: Vironostika Uni-Form II Ag/Ab - Negative
9 months: CMIA, Abbott Architect Ag/Ab - Negative

In the meantime, I also did CBC and my WBC has ranged from 4,500 to 5,500.

Despite the negative results, since June 2012 I started with some VERY bizarre tongue problems: white and swollen tongue, excess of saliva and irritated and sometimes painful tastebuds in the front part of my tongue. Unfortunately, no doctor (Dermatologist, Dentist, ENT, etc.) have been able to help me with that until now.

These chronic tongue problems persist until now. Photos below:

I would like to know if based on these very strange symptoms more tests (different ones?) are needed.

I have been also tested for EBV, CMV, Hepatits A (these tests were positive but shown old infection), HSV (reactivation) and Hepatitis B and C (negative). Syhpilis, Gonhorrea and Chamlydia tests were also negative.

I have a stable partner and we would like to have a baby. The problem is I don't want to dispose of condoms until I have found what's wrong with me. I have been a very healthy man before the incident with this girl in February 2012.

Anyone with similar symptoms? did you find the cause?
