Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for your post.

There isn't any real side effect of missing medicine per se, but one significant possibility is the return of HIV to your bloodstream. As such, it wouldn't surprise me to hear that you have a viral-like syndrome with fevers and body aches.

I'd suggest speaking to your healthcare provider about your medication situation and symptoms.


am I hiv positive or negative?
