Pain in the Hips
« on: February 07, 2007, 12:30:39 PM »
Hallo
Is anyone experiencing pain in the hips. I have had too much pain in my right hips that at times i have to wake up in the night and take a painkiller. This has been going on for almost 1 year now.  I have discussed it with my doctor who has sent me for X-ray and MRI, they say they find nothing.
If there is someone who is going through this please advice me and what medicines are you taking to take away this pain.
Thanks

The first week on Truvada and boosted Reyataz I had very bad pain in my left hip.  I was actually walking with a limp because of it.  It has gone away on its own.  My doc said it was not related to the meds at all.  (but I can't rely on anything he says.)  I just wrote it off as being 40.  Maybe there was more to it.
Hope you find the fix you need.

Take care and keep us informed.

Hello Lido,

I was only on Trizivir for about a month back in 2004. I remember it being a difficult month, with a lot of body ache issues. Since I was already on Epivir and Ziagen, the only thing I could contribute the body aches I was getting, was due to the AZT portion of the Trizivir. When I stopped taking trizivir, I did much better.

Later on, Viread was added to my regimen, and I did get some hip pain for about a month or so, after starting on Viread. That eventually subsided. That's about all the info That I can share with you, as far as my experiences. I would continue to bring this issue up with your doctor, if things don't improve.

Hiya Lido,

I also feel pain in my right hip. My doctor says that if it continues I will be prompted to a densitometry and also to some radiographies in order to see if there's any problem in my hip bones or joints.

I am on Truvada + Reyataz + Norvir.

Before, I was on Truvada + Sustiva, but I had to stop Sustiva due to severe skin rash and pain in joints, particularly in mi right hip, in my foot and elbows. When started the Reyataz combo pain subsided, but, the pain in the hip comes and go and sometimes is hard to sleep or to be just simply laid down.

I think maybe it is due to meds...

Please let us know what your doctor tells. I'll do the same.

Big hughs!!!

I too have experienced low back pain and hip pain. My doctor ordered a dexa scan, an xray to tell the thickness of your bones.
Now I have been diagnosed with oteoporosis and osteopenia.
Started fortical treatments.

i was having dinner with a new poz ffriend complaining about my hip problem and he can see sometime esp. when i start to walk i kind of limp alittle like my elderly mom, so he ask me when it started and then i realized that it got worse right around when my hiv was getting going

i guess that is first thing a dr asks when did it start, then i got really upset and depressed because i relized that this is an hiv related condition and i was thinking well the body and immune system has to repair stressed joints and maybe if i didnt have hiv this would have shown up when i was 70

it felt like i went from 45 to 75 in the last two years of being hiv
i was negative 3 years ago
my latest numbers was
411
and
20,000
vl
i am not on meds yet

please please post your experiences

is this going to get worse and worse, what is it,
i am not on meds
if i get to 350 then i will definitely get on meds haart

is some haart better for hip and joints than others

is it like a repetitive stress injury or
arthritic
or
what exactly?

what are the possibilities?

i cannot lay on my right side at all now in bed

when i sit along time and press on my hip bone socket, or right hip area then i kind of lip alittle until i get walking a few steps, it kind of throws off my gate, my walking gate

Hi Guys ... same issue here in terms of osteopenia/osteoperosis, so I also take Fosamax weekly and have an annual Dexa Scan to track how it's going.  I started having multiple stress fractures (feet and ribs) right about the time I was diagnosed poz in 05.   :-\

Uh, bim -- you do NOT know if this has anything to do with HIV.  It could just be coincidental that it started when you were infected.  Not everything you encounter health-wise will be related to HIV infection, it may very well be something you would have encountered in life had you never been infected with HIV.

I assume you go to the doctor regularly to monitor your HIV even though you are not yet on HIV medications.  Care to tell us why you've not brought this issue up with a medical professional instead of worrying needlessly for THREE years?  If you can't lay on your right side in a bed that seems to me something you should be seeing a doctor about.

Hallo again
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL
I have finally got some results from MRI concerning the pain in my right hip.
My doctor said that i need Hip Replacement, am 51 years old, he says it is not due to the medicines for HIV. He cannot say what causes it. He adviced me to start with physio to delay the operation, as he says am still `young`to go for hip replacements. It might be that i can go for another hip replacement operation after 3 years. I started with warm water physio in the swimming pool and it has worked wonders. I feel better than before, although they is still a bit  very small pain I can sleep on my right side now without proplems.
So i can only say to those that have pain in their hips to try phsio excercises in warm water /swimming pool).
We are still going strong. Keep it up.
Lido
