How can you tell?

My consultant tells me that whatever you were genetically destined to have, HIV may make it earlier onset or more severe. Personally I've got horrific arthritis, ...possibly ten or twenty years before I would have done before immuno collapse. Its VERY hard to tell what is virus related or just what would have happened...your ID doc should be made aware of any family health issue so he/she can deal with things as they/if they occur and advise you. I really do understand, and empathise, its so hard to seperate '''normal''' stuff from the effects of the virus
Hope this helps..and there are organisations in UK dealing with these bone problems, sure they can supply links to US if you need them...PM me if you need addresses, arthrocare.org a good resource
