Burning sensation during urination.
Feb 21, 2004

For the past two weeks I have been getting a burning sensation when urinating. All tests came up negetive for any infections including a digital rectal exam. I started Viread two months ago and I am wondering if that has someting to do with it.

Response from Dr. Henry

Very occasionally tenofovir has resulted in renal abnormalities. Your HIV doc can check your urine, electrolytes, P04 level to see if there is any kidney problem. I have had a few patients describe those same symptoms on Viread without ever figuring out why. KH
