Update: Resistance/Symp
Mar 1, 2008

This is to update on my recent question regarding severe diahrea of 4 days --Resistance/Symptoms. Doctor determined not HIV related. All better now. By the way, HIV tests 1 week after this episode indicates less than 50 copies (undetectable and CD4 at 738.

Indeed, us on ART do get other "regular" stuff. Lesson learned, don't panic, but do get it checked out, like everyone else should.


Response from Dr. Sherer

Thanks for the follow up information. So many people with HIV worry alone with unexplained symptoms, and their fearful thoughts are often far worse than simply seeing their doctor and getting reassurance and/or an answer. I appreciate your sharing your story with this site.
