Dear doctor in the past you have said the HIV neuropathy usually happens in the advanced stage of hiv, my question is, how soon can it happen? Is 2 years a a good time for it to start? Please help me out. thankyou very much

Response from Dr. Feinberg

It isn't possible to give a timeframe for this because different people have different rates of HIV disease progression. On AVERAGE, it might take 8-10 years fater becoming HIV-infected to develop HIV-related peripheral neuropathy.
