Stomach issues
« on: January 19, 2007, 10:29:57 PM »
I found on 10/19 and didn't have any symptoms. My stomach was a little off after I went out and drank but other then that I was basically fine. The meds kicked my ass at first and then my body adjusted and I started Atripla 2 months ago with zero problems. The last few days my stomach feels the same way it did before I found out except it like this about 70% of the time. Food or drink doesn't really spark it and I was just wondering if it could be my body adjusting still or if it could be something more serious? I am fine otherwise, no fever, not tired nothing.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks! :)

There are all kinds of nasty little infections that one can get in the gut, an intestinal track, related to HIV. I had a bad one, back in 2002 that required Cipro, to help clear it up. It's good that your going to your doctor, you will get better answers. Let us know how you make out...

Not being a doctor and this being the weekend, I would assume that it's not the meds. since you have been on them with no problem for 2 months.  If you can, keep track of exactly what you mean, what you are feeling, where you are feeling it, how long you feel what.  The more information, the more exact information you can pass along to your doctor (as opposed to my stomach hurts, not that you have said this) the easier and faster it will be for him or her to pinpoint the problem.  Best, Win

Virgo71: It may sound strange to you but your inner anxiety does trigger your body's physical symptoms as well. "It is called butterflies" in the stomach combined with other causes that you may not be aware of. Should your stomach persit with its reaction from something that is causing the reaction, a good suggestion would be to check with your Doctor to seek a remedy for this situation.
