Has Anyone But Particularly Women Experienced Severe Hair Loss Before Starting Their HIV Medication?
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

I lost all of the hair on my crown. It started gradually and just spread over time. It was very painful but sporadic. When it happened my head felt like it was eing stabbed with hot pins and then my hair thinned until it was gone. Since being on meds my hair has returned but not completely. Does this, or anything like it, sound familiar to anyone and what have you done about the hair loss?

Symtuza: What Foods Trigger Diarrhea
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

This is for my others team mates out there who are, like me, also on Symtuza.
I was recently told that by my doctor that although Symtuza causes diarrhea as a side effect, that it’s certain high fat foods that can can make it worse.
As a Symtuza user what foods have caused the worse gastrointestinal side effects for you?

I appreciate anybody’s input on this.
Thanks
