Living With HIV / Re: Isentress vs norvir and prezista

I've never been to a neurologist.  I thought that condition always accompanies pain? I guess I need to discuss this with the doctor again.  I'm surprised he never considered this.  Perhaps because of a complete lack of pain?

negative, not always.. nerves are funny things. honestly, the CNS issues i've dealt with so far have been more problematic than HIV. numbness can be caused by many things, not always nerve related, but rule that out. get thee to neuro

just venting here.. nothing to see

a friend passed away this morning after a long battle with cancer. i was planning on stopping in to see him next month, now i'll be paying respects

one more reminder that although i have a virus/disease, it is manageable. my father has fought pancreatic cancer, very painful thing to live with. makes me worry for him.

death is the only promise we all keep

Off Topic Forum / Re: Supreme Court challenge to the ACA, Scared :(
« Last post by RobbyR on Yesterday at 12:58:59 PM »
Very good point Zach. But it seems this challenge is potentially very risky as far as the justices ruling against the ACA and if they do it would be very bad. But can someone find out just who would lose coverage if they rule against it? I think the article mentioned the states who did not or refused to set up their own exchanges as the ones who would be affected, so Kentucky would not be affected, or am I wrong.

Zach, believe me, as far as health coverage goes, and general attitudes to gay people, I'd leave Kentucky in a heartbeat for good if I could. People are just extremely ignorant. I don't see how people can be so meanhearted and selfish, who claim to be "religious".

Living With HIV / Re: Can we talk about Anal Dysplasia?
« Last post by wolfter on Yesterday at 12:51:56 PM »
I've had long term issues with polyps and regularly had them removed.  I'm screened regularly but I went a long period of time not caring about anything where I ignored my health.

So I went many years and by the time I experienced extreme discomfort, it was almost too late.  I had several highgrade neoplastic masses.  Fortunately, it was confined within the mass and had not moved on to the tissue surrounding the mass.

The worst one was right on the anus and had to be cut out.  OH MY Freaking god!!!!  I was afraid to eat as bowell movements were awful.  I had to sit a bed pan full of hot water in order to reduce the severe pain.  TMI I know but that's how I handled it. 

And since, they have only discovered one.  And because I didn't delay, they were able to zap it with no pain what so ever.

challenges can be a good thing robby, if the court finds in favor of the aca it will serve firm up the ground

i've been doing some soul searching about moving out of the south, find a nice medicinal state with good heathcare and i'm probably gone

I'm not having that issue now that I've gotten rid of the Norvir.  I was ingesting almost a bottle daily of Imodium and it didn't help much. 

I have noticed several other issues that I never correlated with the Isentress.  I'm once again experiencing numbness in my extremities.  I've had this issue for a long time and it stopped when I stopped the Isentress and has returned once I resumed taking it.

I guess the numbness in my feet is what causes my balance issues.  I'm back to stumbling and such but no major falls yet.   :)

sounds like neuropathy to me, but without the bad pain -- should I assume you've gotten a work up about this from a neurologist lately?
