Tendon Nueorpathy
May 23, 2009

You raise a number of important points including how difficult it is in the US to detect novel but uncommon side effects linked to a FDA approved drug. It sounds like you are having a neuropathy or a tendon/mechanical problem with one finger which would be unusual for a drug toxicity to cause such an isolated problem (more often bilateral and involves other nerves of simmlar length). I assume you have had nerve conduction studies and a neurologic evaluation to assess peripheral nerve status in right arm/wrist/fingers? KH

THANK SO MUCH! I'll ask (Dr Pierone ...if wish to edit this) where i can have this test done, I didn't even consider a Neurological Doctor we be needed or a test like that existed

Response from Dr. Henry

Follow-up noted. KH

Cd4 and viral load
