Night sweats
Dec 7, 2005

I've had them the bulk of my 4 years of being HIV poz. On and off meds. Day and night, since I work nights, and often sleep days. I'm repeatedly told I haven't had it "long enough" for this to happen. No other explanations. Please clarify this experience.

Response from Dr. Henry

Some HIV+ individuals do have more or less continuous symptoms after infection due to their own immune system, personnel genetics, and other factors (sometimes other infections as well). An evaluation of your overall immune system (including CD4 count), risk for other infections (such as TB), general health and hormone status by an HIV specialist is recommended. KH

****one+ one= BABY!!
