Does your doctor have an opinion as to whether headaches are related to your hiv infection?
Does your doctor think starting haart would help with this particular problem (among the many other advantages)?
Do you think you need to start HAART now, to live well, or not yet?
HOw long do you think you have been infected with HIV?

I guess when the headaches get bad enough, you'll decide for sure what to do.  Best of luck!

I have a question, but it is not the topic of your thread. Obviously no need to answer. 

The question is - what do you mean by this?  There are a lot of things you must do? You mean things you need to do before you are ready to start?  Or do you mean after you start medicine, you are afraid you wont be able to do as much as you need to do?

My experience, same kind of headaches, almost daily, before I knew I was +.  Turned out to be the pre-curser of PCP and wound up in hospital for 21 days, not much fun, might ask Doc to start you on Meds just to prevent anything like that happening to you. Your #'s would probably eliminate PCP, but could be indicative of other infections; be proactive and good luck.
Finish each day and be done with it.  You have done what you could.  Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can.  Tomorrow is a new day.  You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with you old nonsense.

I've had headaches since for years, though the frequency is only a couple a month. While horrible when they come on, I can get read of them with some Alleve type OTC stuff or aspirin though it may take hours for relief to set in. Sometimes they're bad enough where I need to lie on the sofa for a while.
