Fatigue and HIV

Posted on April 06, 2018

"Is there something you can take to get your energy back? I always feel like I’m carrying a 1000 pound weight on my back no matter what I’ve tried or use. And the doctors are no help, they just tell me it’s part of the meds and the disease. I sleep very well. I’m at my wit's end. Tired of being tired. Want my energy back." -A member on myHIVteam

On myHIVteam, the social network and online support group for those living with HIV, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Fatigue one of the top 10 topics most discussed.
