Joint Pain lately

Jul 29, 2007

I write on a semi regular basis. I received my latest count 2 months ago which were 616 CD-4 and less then 50 VL. This is up from 203 CD-4 and 12,000 VL back in November 2005. I think I have done wonderful, but I am now starting to experience joint pain in my legs and arms. I am on Sustiva and Truvada and about to swith over to Atripla. Is this common after only a year and a half? I am 45 years old and not really overweight (10lbs perhaps)

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It is not commonly associated with HIV or HIV medications. Many different medical conditions can be associated with these kinds of symptoms.
