Have you ever heard of blepharospasm being caused by being positive or a reaction of the medines I am on? Before finding out I was positive I was fine and now I have what the doctors say is Blepharospasm which they claim is not from being positive. I also have PML. Is the Blepharospasm a symptom?

Response from Dr. Henry

I haven't observed blepharospasm being linked to a particular HIV drug. It could be a manifestation of brain/nerve irritation related to the PML or other nerve condition. KH
