going crazy feeling like something is wrong with my body after 2 years of haart!
Feb 1, 2012

Dear Doctor, I am a 39 year old Hiv positive male living in Germany who has been receiving Haart treatment since I first found out I was Positive in late 2009 with a cd4 of 208! Since receiving treatment I have been feeling much weaker, tired , more headaches aswell as stronger muscle aches! I have mentioned this a number of times to my Doctor after getting my CBC every 3 months and he basically laughs it off, telling me that i should not stress so much about it! I have just received my last CBC yesterday and I was hoping that you could make some sense of it and put my mind to rest or possible direct me in specific testing i should ask for if you see anything out of the ordinary! CD4-408, CD4%-23, CD4/8 ratio 0.4, CD8-933, CD8%-52, CRP<1, DR+%3+ -21%, GT 64, HIV-PRC <20n, LEUKO 3.1 from a ratio (4.0-10.) LYMPHO% -56.6%, LympM -53 from a ration of (17-47), MCV -97.4, NeutAbs -1.001 from a ratio of (1.700-7.200), NeutM% -33% from a ratio of (41%-75%), NEUTRO% -32%, NKT% -16, Thro -122, TSH -0.13 from a ratio of (0.40-2.50) Am I making my self crazy or should I be checking other things???? Thanks Paul

You dont mention what HIV and other meds your are taking. Your lab results dont identify any clear reason for your symptoms. An evaluation of muscle health, testosterone, vitamin D, mental health and other general health conditions may be worthwhile due to severity of your symptoms. KH
