Response from Dr. Henry

IVIG is used for a number of conditions such as low platelet count and some recurrent infections. If you are HIV+ it is generally important to start effective antiretroviral therapy as soon as possible so I would discuss with your HIV specialist to find out what your options are. KH

Why am I HIV negative?
I am suffering from pain and cramps in my limbs
