Does Anyone Who Has Had Hiv For Longer Than 10 Years Suffer From Chronic Pain?

Does Anyone Who Has Had Hiv For Longer Than 10 Years Suffer From Chronic Pain?

I've been poz for 18 years now. Twice, I have had bouts of chronic pain. Shoulder pain was finally mitigated after surgery. Now dealing with si joint pain that has progressively gotten worse over the last three years. Just wondering if the disease or the meds can acerbate the pain, or joint problems?

In 2010 after 10 years of being infected I developed excruciating pain in both of my wrists, and I had never had any kinds of problems with them previously. It was diagnosed as carpal tunnel and I had to have surgery immediately. I am convinced that it was related to HIV though my doctor isn't sure.

I took that as well. I still say if all else fails ask about the pain pump implant. AWSOME if you can find relief without side effects!!!!
