I had a fall in 2017 and broke 4 ribs, year later got pneumonia. The pneumonia crippled my immune system, been 2 years and CD4 so far only 95. But through it all have stayed undetectable.

I was switched over to Biktarvy from Genvoya due to viral escape into my spinal fluid. I find fewer side effects however my sleep patterns have changed. I recently discovered that my current constipation is due to my stage 3 kidneys. Occasionally I do feel a cold numbness in my left arm while resting. My Biktarvy comes with chaser of Edurant for the viral escape. I had never heard of this before. I hope this helps somehow.

Exactly, a normal range for a CD4 count is 500-1,600 and as I explained before, anything under 200 is considered to be within AIDS range. As for viral load, depending on the system, it can be detected down to 40 and sometimes 20, but generally anything under 40 is undetectable which means untransmittable.
