Response from Dr. Henry

You don't mention which HIV meds you are on. Diffuse aching actually fairly common in general population so tough to pin down cause in many instances. You are in excellent hands with Dr Fineberg. I am not aware of any report linking a specific HIV regimen to ANA+ lupus type syndrome. I assume you have seen a rheumatologist to perhaps better define the nature of your symptoms? KH
