Response from Dr. Henry

Localize pain as you describe would rarely be due to HIV or meds (you dont mention which meds you are taking-this is a forum for discussing side effects of HIV treatment). Gout, nerve compression, occult injury, peripheral vascular disease would be common considerations with those symptoms. Would discuss with your HIV provider who is familiar with your overall health status. KH
