Response from Dr. Boyle

A "stroke" can occur in patients with HIV/AIDS, but there are many other potential reasons for the problems you describe. This website and a number of others provide excellent general information about HIV/AIDS and this includes information about the potential neurological complications.

Coronary HAART Disease
Neuropathy and acupuncture
