Response from Dr. Young

It sounds to me that you very well might have HIV neuropathy, with pain in both hands and legs... this would lead me to think that starting HIV therapy, particularly with a CD4 count that is approximately at the ~350 mark that us US doctors use as the starting point for therapy. BY
