can you please help me?
Jun 27, 2002

Dr. Frascino, I have a simple question, sorry if this is the wrong forum but I am not getting an answer and hope that you will please help me out with a very simple question. Are prolonged hiccups a symptom of early hiv infection? Thanks for taking the time.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Hiccups a symptom of early HIV infection??? Well, if I told you yes, they are, I'm sure that would scare those hiccups right away! But, no, hiccups are not related to HIV. And before you write back again, neither is bad breath, crooked teeth, nearsightedness, flat feet, or a curved penis.

Stay well.

Dr. Bob

Hello Sir
You help keep me "hanging in there". Thanks
