Brief Answer:
Is a very low probability.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and thank you for asking again.
There is a rare percent that can show false positive for mono.
I think the symptoms are caused by mono since it come positive not by HIV.
I think it would be better if you get retested for HIV 1and 2.
The false positive or negative results in tests are of a very low percentage and is a very low probability that it can be false positive for mono and false negative for HIV too.
Also a complete blood count in case of mono shows elevated lymphocyte and monocyte count while HIV shows low leucocytes count.
