Left abdomen pain
May 21, 2013
I have been HIV positive for almost two years. I take isentress and truvada. For the past month. I have had pain regularly in the lower left side of my abdomen. Sometimes the pain occurs in my left shoulder as well. The pain feels like sever bloating, but I have had fairly persistent diarrhea. Is this something serious. I'm really concerned.

Hello and thanks for posting.
Seems like you should be reporting your symptoms to your doctor (if you haven't already). Persistent diarrhea could be the result of a medication side effect or infection- but persistent pain and diarrhea should be evaluated.
Be well, BY
