I got headache that hurts on the right side only from the back of my neck to the front of my forehead. Should i be worried or is it normal. Your answer will highly appreciated.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Headaches are not uncommon symptoms- be they drug side effects, HIV symptoms or just general medical conditions.

It's difficult for me to ascertain what the cause of your headaches are on the basis of your description. Overall, they don't sound severe, but nonetheless, I'd let your healthcare provider know about what's going on.


hiv/aids treatment
Sustiva and lipoatrophy.
