can hiv cause anxiety even if you dont know if you are positive?
Response from Mr. Shernoff
HIV has the potential to cause a whole host of neuropsychiatric symptoms that does include anxiety. It is almost unheard of that aymptomatic individuals experience these neuropsychiatric complaints. Anxiety is a very common presenting problem for people begninng psychtherapy. If it is debilitating it needs to be treated by the appropriate professionals.
