chronic upper back aches

Question

Dear Doc,

Does chronic upper back aches or stiffness going up to the back neck associated w/ hiv infection??

Because I do experienced it, it get worse every time I woke up in the morning. So, far, I had oral thrush on the tongue and in the cheeks and my gums became tender and thinner because of the white sticky plaques that sticks bet. my teeth and gums.

Hope for your kind reply the soonest. Thank you.

Answer

Chronic back pain is not specifically associated with HIV.
