Response from Dr. Henry
Fatigue and memory problems become more common in the general populaton with aging so can be a challenge to sort out if there is a contribution in your case from either HIV or your treatments. A thorough clinical evaluation including possibly checking hormone levels (thyroid and testosterone) vitamin levels (vitamin D and others), mental health/stress/neurologic assessment are worth considering when experiencing fatigue and memory problems such as you describe.
