Difficulting Swallowing
Jul 1, 2004

My docs are encouraging me to start treatmeant soon. CD4: 350, VL: 32,000.

Generally I feel fine. For about a week however, my throat has become increasingly sore, well not the throat so much, but just when swallowing. I thought it was just a cold and it'd pass....but now I can barely swallow, the act of swallowing itself is what so painful....everything else seems fine. What should I be concerned about?

Response from Dr. Pierone

You should get in to see your doctor to be checked out. This could just be a virus or it could be something more serious.
