HIV positive with Dizzyness
Dec 30, 2011

I have been experiencing very bad dizzyness for a pass few days. I tried sleeping it away but as soon as I wake up I am hit again. I am thinking it may have something to do with my HIV, I just found out a few months ago and I am blaming everything on HIV I guess that is typical. Anyway I was wondering could it be a lack of water that is causing this dizzyness?

Response from Dr. Henry

Persistent dizziness would not be a common persistent symptom in early HIV infection but could happen and can be seen due to complications of HIV/AIDS in patients with more advanced HIV infection-I assume you have had an evaluation by an HIV specialist including examination and CD4 (T-helper cell) counts? Dizziness is common in general population as well and can be due to wide range of problems including dehydration, stress, diabetes, middler/inner ear problems and many others. KH

Can Atripla and Humira be taken together?
