Dont feel good
Oct 31, 2002

I have been off all hiv meds for two years. My ts are 300 and vl is 30m.Blood pressure,sugar,and cholest. all fine. I have never been sick except from drugs. The last week I just havent felt right. Nauseated all the time, slight dizzy spells, and am not thinking clearly. Just really wierd. Been pos and on meds since late 80s.

Response from Dr. Henry

Though you could have a viral infection (such as an inner ear infection) I would seek an evaluation from your HIV doc. Most HIV docs are pretty good at sorting out whether a problem is serious and/or likely HIV-related or whether it is one of the many hard to pin-point ailments that bother patients periodically (whether they are HIV+ or not).
