Fatigue and weird symptoms?
Jan 8, 2009

HIV positive as of earlier this year, now I have noticed that my ball sack is much bigger now then before, much more lose (is this because there is hiv accumulation/reproduction in the testes?) I also feel stinging sensations all over my body, affect of hiv? Very fatigued.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your "ball sack is much bigger now than before"???? Wow, could it be that we finally have a beneficial side effect of HIV??? No, sorry. Whatever is turning your Tic Tacs into low-hanging bull balls, it's not HIV! Have your doctor check this out. Likewise, the "stinging sensation all over your body" is not a symptom commonly related to HIV. Your HIV physician should be able to help.

The fatigue complaint may very well be HIV related. Take a read through the chapters in the archives of this forum dedicated to the causes and treatment of HIV-related fatigue. They should provide you with a good understanding of the common underlying causes and potential treatments available.

Good luck.
