What is the typical progression of neuropathy? Can the symptoms appear,then resolve, then reappear?
Response from Dr. Feinberg
Usually, when peripheral neuropathy appears in association with one of the HIV medications, the symtpoms may resolve if the drug is stopped quickly enough. If that doesn't happen, or if the neuropathy is due to HIV itself, then the symptoms will persist and can even worsen. There are medications that can lessen the symptoms, but nothing will 'cure' neuropathy, it will just make it more bearable.
