Lipodystrophy or Neuropathy?
      #100424 - 06/26/04 07:30 PM

Is it possible to experience lipodystrophy and neuropathy within 2-3 months of HIV exposure, or are these conditions generally symptomatic of long-term HIV status? I have noticed significant swelling under my arm/ beside my right breast. I'm not sure if it is a normal fat deposit, a swollen muscle, or a serious medical condition. Also, I have experienced slight pain, tingling, and numbness in my extremities. Could these be caused by anxiety? Thanks.

I dont know about the technical terms, but I'll try to give my undersatning. Lumps and bumps in the arm pit.... the banme of everyones life... well accordong to what i read you would feel lumps and bumps all over your body ( due to the virus kinda saturating your system... I mean all overy your lymphatic system). On the other hand it could be that the bump is a cyst.. I had one damn worrying, bugger got infected and you just dont wanna know about that!!!! OK now to the tingling... do you smaoke.. if so are you smoking a lot... I yoused to smoke like it was going out of fashion.... tingle tingle went my extremities.. stopped the ciggies, tingle went away.. I prob didnt help you but its nice to know some one read your post. Its been comforting to know people have read mine
