severe pains
Mar 28, 2006

I have had hiv for 13 years and only recently found out. I've been on treatment for nearly a year and became undetectable with a high cd4 count. Before I knew I had this i was getting dull aches all over my body, and shooting pains that come and go, accompanied by severe headaches, this had been going on for years but the doctors sent me for lots of tests and couldn't find anything. Since starting on antiviral treatment the pains had disappeared for about 6 months but now they are back. I take my medication everyday as this is my lifeline. What is wrong with me any ideas

Response from Dr. Henry

Sounds like a challenge . Have you been evaluated by a pain specialist to rheumatologist or neurologist. I often get good ideas from those consultants after they do a thorough examination. Nothing clearly HIV related comes to mind with that history. KH
