I am short tempered

Sep 10, 2011

I am HIV+ and I seem to have a problem, I can't concentrate and I get angry most of the time. Please help -- is this related to my HIV status?

Response from Dr. Fawcett

You don't indicate how long you have been experiencing these symptoms. Both are generally quite common and can be the result of a number of different causes, some related to HIV and some not. A period of stress can produce these symptoms, as can medication, depression, anxiety, or many other factors. I would recommend seeing a mental health professional who can take a more thorough history.
