Question

I am HIV positive and on anti retrovirals. My problem is that I have headaches everyday on average I take 6 headache tablets. Is the headache caused by anti retrovirals?

Answer

Headaches can be due to HIV, HIV therapy, or many other causes. Headaches are very common in the general population and can be a challenge to diagnose and treat properly. When I am uncertain as to the cause I get help from a headache specialist (often a neurologist or pain specialist). KH
