I am having severe muscle pain, though not on meds. The worst part is on arms and legs, it comes and goes, usually with the feeling hot situation. Is this the virus going beyond the roof or should I look for something else?
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Dear Muscle Pain,
This may not be muscle pain but nerve pain, ie neuropathy. That is likely caused by the virus itself. It sounds like you should consider getting treated for the virus. There are also medications that can help the neuropathy, but you should only consider them if you are getting HIV treatment. Good luck! DTD
