I was had parvo 1 & 1/2 years ago. I recently started to have the achy joints again. (knees, shoulders & hips) Is it normal to have symptoms a year & 1/2 later.
Response from Dr. Frascino
This is an HIV information Web site. Are you HIV positive? Parvovirus in folks who are immunodeficient or immunocompromised can become a chronic or recurrent problem. I suggest you check with your HIV specialist and/or hematologist. They should be able to help determine the cause of your achy joints.
