tingling and numbness in hand
Nov 15, 2000

I have tingling and numbness in my left hand. I am concerned as to whether this may be hiv related. I have an undetectable viral load and t cells 5-600ish

Response from Dr. Boyle

You don't provide a lot of information about the "tingling", but it may be a sign of neuropathy, and you can read further about that condition on this web site. I suggest that you give your doctor a call and discuss it. Further information and an examination may be necessary. BB
