Left tricep pain
Apr 23, 2008

I have been having pain and strifness in my left arm for about a week now or a longer.. it comes and going during the day but when I go to sleep and wake up it is there... I take turvada and virume.. Could any one of these becausing it??..

Response from Dr. Henry

Pain localized to left arm as you describe would be very unusual to be due to either the Truvada or viramune-almost always some other explanation. I physical and lab examination by your HIV specialist should help sort things out. KH

Kaletra and Grapefruit Juice
Mouth sores and Sustiva
