Migrating Skin Pain
Aug 26, 2008

I have been experiencing migrating skin pain. At first I thought it was recurring shingles that never developed into a rash. Now, I don't know. It's painful, and leaves me extremely fatigued and unable to work out. I've been scouring the Internet for answers. You have advised others to seek the advice of a neurologist. The only people that I've found to have similar experiences were HIV+ like myself. Could you forward this to a neurologist who has HIV experience?

Response from Dr. Henry

It is important for a neurologist or pain specialist to do a detailed history and physical examination in order to determine likely cause and advise treatment so I recommend actually seeing one or both or those specialists for an evaluation. KH
