muscle aches/cramping
« on: September 28, 2006, 08:04:28 PM »
I'm not even sure if what I am experiencing right now is HIV related or something else.  This week I have noticed a significant discomfort in my thighs.  It hurts less when I'm up and walking, and hurts more when I've sitting.  There is no radiating discomfort.  My knees ache, too, but I've pretty much thought that the knee pain was related to my years as a runner.  Feet are fine - no pain or tingling. No neuropathic pain. Hand and fingers are fine as well.  IT is only located in my thighs, more specifically the back of my thighs.

My t-cell count is 244. Viral Load is undetectable.  Been pos for 13 years.  I taking Truvada, Reyataz, and Norvir.

Anyone have anythoughts about this?  Chris

I find my "stiffest" time of the day is when I get up in the morning. I feel damned arthritic on my way to the john. it usually passes in a few minutes and I just attribute it to sleeping soundly and resting in one static position - akin to sitting. I'm not getting any younger, after all :)

Hello Cflas, it is Eldon.

Unfortunately I cannot help you out on this one. However, if the problems/symptoms persist, please DO see your Doctor concerning this.

Make the BEST of each Day!
