|Tingling in left outside leg
Aug 29, 2012
since i started taking atripia I experience tingling in only my left outside leg from hip to calf. I am also a dietbetic with a A1C of 6 my last ck up showed vl at 281 and cd4 at 640. I was infected May 17 2011. was confirmed three weeks later as infected less than a yr cd4 went down to 480 vl 800,000 and climbing. I am a OTR trucker and am very concerned for obvious reasons. blood clots etc. dietbetic related damage etc. also been having anginia attacks twice since started atripia 3 months ago

Unlikely that the tingling would be due to either HIV or the medications-more likely from a nerve compression at some level. Recommend discussing with your HIV doctor and possibly getting neurology consult if problem persists/worsens. KH
