Hi, I have been living with HIV for 10 years, and not in ARVs. I am not feeling sick yet, my CD4 count is at 600. I recently realised that I get these headaches, even at night. My head get so sore, by my forehead, that I can only get ease when I am sleeping facing up, which I hate. I would like to know if there is any symptom related to HIV and headaches, or I am just stressed, which I am. I don't get enough rest, I work too hard. Pls help. I don't wanna get shocked when I get to my doctor. Thanks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

There certainly could be headaches related to HIV infection, which are most likely the result of other infections. However, this would be extremely unlikely in you, given your normal CD4 count. It could be stress, but it would be worthwhile to have a neurologist check it out.

Too much variation and still Detectable.
