You should get evaluated for memory problems and other cognitive impairment. If the cognitive problem is serious, then you should talk to your HIV specialist about whether you are a candidate for ARVs. I have seen many patients with AIDS and serious memory problems improve dramatically after starting HAART. But you need proper evaluation and consultation with a doctor first.
