previous nerve damage
Oct 16, 2005

if someone had previous nerve damage in the lower extremities, would hiv infection of less than a year tend to cause neuropathy quicker since they was previous nerve damage? Can a person have nueropathy this quickly without being a fast progressor? Can you see this type of symptoms and still have great immune function and normal cd4 counts? I thought symptoms don't show up for years?

Response from Dr. Henry

This forum is exclusively for the discussion of side effects of HIV therapy in persons known to be HIV infected and taking antiretroviral. If you are having problems with neuropathy on HIV meds which HIV meds are you taking and what specifically are your symptoms. ?
