I see elsewhere that you have started taking Atripla, so that should help in lowering that viral load in a fairly short  time-span (mine went down from 1.5 mill to 1k in just a couple of weeks; you will see other members with similar results).

As far as the swelling goes, this may certainly be related to your current VL. Were you infected or did you undergo "seroconversion" recently?  Mine were swollen for a few weeks after the acute infection; once the viral load was suppressed I did not feel them anymore.

Be patient with the Atripla; you've been on it for just one week.  If the symptoms get worse (or if they don't go away after a couple of weeks) be sure to discuss a new line of treatment with your doc.

And by the way, since I had not said it, welcome to the forums.

Da Rev.

Hi, I had viral loads in the millions during my first months of seroconversion.
HAART - tri-therapy - worked for me and will for you, too!
You are taking the medicine, correct?
I personally might guess that your experience will be like mine and you will quite better already in the next few days.  HAART cuts the viral load down by logs - virus simply can't reproduce, so active virus in the system is reduced radically as time goes on.
