May 19, 2010

my t-cells are under 120/viral load over 100,000 i'm experiencing severe extremity pain (muscles)and difficulty breathing yet level is 95-98 could this be aids related and if so what is it called?

Response from Dr. Henry

Pain as you describe can be HIV/AIDS related but other medical conditions can contribute as well. I advice seeing an HIV specialist for an evaluation and to consider starting HIV medications as well as addressing your severe symptoms. KH
