Response from Dr. Henry
Tough to say. Serostim can cause that. Neuropathy from HIV or past drug exposure could contribute. Muscle irritation from HIV or other drugs can cause that. I would start with Serostim as a possible cause-I have observed that in some of our Serostim studies. I would recommend discussing with your doc and perhaps seeing an HIV experienced neurologist. KH
