Jaygarcia2020 - Introduction - Swollen nodes
« on: January 18, 2020, 03:26:59 am »
Hello good day..im jay 64 years old from philippines
I had my test last november 2 and it turns positive..my cd4 is 168 and i already started taking arv.
My main concern is i have a swollen and really hurt lympnodes under my armpit as well as on my neck.
And i think this is tke reason why i always have a fever like 39 every 6 hours
I used to take paracetamol then in a few minutes my temperature will be back to normal..

My question is:
Is it normal to have a painfull lymphnodes during hiv medication?

Im a bit afraid maybe its lymphoma

Hope you can help me..tnx
Godbless

Hi Jay,

Sorry to hear about the diagnosis and that you have been feeling unwell.
What HIV meds are you taking? Are you taking any antibiotics?

Regarding the nodes, if they are swollen due to HIV it can take a while for them to settle down after starting HIV treatment, the thing is, they can also swell and be painful for a number of other reasons, not just HIV related and you really should see your doctor and have it checked out.

Best, Jim

Thanks, im taking 3 in1 arv here in the philippines
We already had biopsy to find out where is this lymphnodes coming from.
My doctor suspect it tb of the lymphnodes how ever when i start tb meds i had alot of allergies..so my doctor decided to stop taking tb meds until the biopsy result will come.out..

I took cotrimoxasole but im allergic to it.

So the only meds im taking now is arv 3 in 1

I am just worried with my lymphnodes that cause me fever every 6 hours..

Tnx and godbless

Hiya

I don't know what 3in1 is ... I understand it's 3 drugs in one pill but there are quite a few options/combinations like that.

When do you have your next follow up with your doctor and did you have your viral load measured?

Okay so the doctor has already looked and suspects TB. When was that and when do you think you will have the results of the biopsy?

I would not stress about a temperature, I would be more stressed about rulling out TB

Hiya, glad to hear that your partner is supportive.

Sure it's possible, now not sure when or what test but generally speaking a negative HIV antibodies test at 3 months post last possible exposure would be considered conclusive

Hello Jayarica2020,

I am sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis. It is a life changing moment but for the better.

I am also sorry to hear about your lymph node. I stress on what Jim addressed by the importance to work closely with your health care provider. Good news that your Dr. exclude TB. Please keep us posted.

From my experience, I had enlarged lymph nodes for several months after being diagnosed and then they vanished all alone without any medical intervention. I remember I was worried but my doctor assured me that they will go away with time.

The commercial name of your 3 in 1 combo is: Telura. This medication will help you achieving an undetectable HIV virus level in your blood which means that you will be also able to have sex with your partner without transmitting the virus.

Welcome to this forum and wishing you all the best.

Prince.

One of them was really hurting but the other was mild. I wish the result of your biopsy will be fine. I send you my sincere prayers and looking forward to hearing your good news.

Great news, congratulations. Wonderful news, I am sure you are relieved by now. Your healthcare provider should be able to take it further with you, but what matters is that nothing is serious. Congrats :)
