what's causing my joint pain and fatigue?
Jun 4, 2013

I have been positive for almost 15 years. In the past 2 my health has declined as well as my counts. I am on Isentress, Truvada, Norvir, and Prezista. In the last six months or so I have noticed a decrease in energy and a lot of joint pain and all around fatigue. I also am taking a thyroid medication, but those counts are good.

My doctor has tested me for lactic acidosis and that came back inconclusive. she said I was in the middle so now she wants to check for celiac's disease. I am wondering if all this is necessary and what else could be causing all this pain and tiredness? All I want is a little relief and some good sleep. Please help!
