I am 38 years old. I have been on meds for the past five years. Three weeks ago I started experiencing extremely painful heels. Does it hv to do with the medication ( nevirapine, lamuvudine and tenofovir) I am taking or what?

Hello and thanks for posting.
I'd think that it'd be unusual that your medications or HIV would cause these symptoms. Indeed, it sounds a bit like plantar fasciitis.
Either way, I'd recommend talking to your doctor about your pain.
