Doctor Holodniy, Can hiv cause a persistent chronic tension type headache? If so how long after infection might this occur? Is persistent headache a common problem in hiv infected people? Like all the other readers I'd like to thank you for the tremendous job you are doing. God bless you!
| Response from Dr. Holodniy
Headache as a sole symptom of acute infection would be extremely unlikely, as would the persistence of headaches. Headaches can certainly occur in the presence of a flu like syndrome. They are usually self limited. MH
