In my experience persistent painful lymphadenopathy is unusual for patients doing well on ART otherwise (high CD4 count and undetectable virus). The location of the lymphadenopathy may provide a clue if there is another contributing factor. Pain also usually can be treated to relieve symptoms so that is worth discussing while efforts are made to see if there are other factors contributing to yourpain. KH
