I am HIV pos. In the morning sometime i have a small cough not dry.I was wondering if its just a cold. I have had it for a while but just first thing in the norning and not for long. I sleep with a fan. I am thinking thats why. I am undetectible with cd4 480.
Response from Dr. Feinberg
The fan might be the answer, because your throat and upper respiratory passages may be getting too dry. If you smoke cigarettes, this may be a culprit as well. Your T cell count and viral load signal that this is unlikely to be a serious HIV-related problem.
