leg pain
Apr 4, 2007

Been on meds for about 2 yrs...

About 6 mos ago, started to have some pain on my front shin on only one leg when pressure is applied to it (scratching it, etc). The foot on the same leg now has a spot that is very tender when pressure is applied (walking, etc) to it, but not the whole foot, just one section.

Is this anything related to the meds?

Response from Dr. Henry

Pain localized soley to the region you describe would rarely be directly related to antiretroviral therapy. A good history and physical examination and review of your treatment history is recommended to determine what is the most likely cause of your discomfort. KH
