New Meds, New Problems This Year

In Late winter of this year, Dr Hoven Changed my HIV coctail to Isentress, Norvir, Reyataz, and Fuzeon injections. Between Early spring and the present, I have experienced increased muscel pain in my left hamstring, which has trobled me some for a long time. I have also had an increase in muscle pain in both arms, and joint pain in my knees, left elbo, and right foot, mostly in my toes. My left ankle flares up as well. All of this is new stuff.

The peripheral neuropathy is also a constant presence. My bowls go from constipation to normal to diarhhea back to constipation.
I have also been on six rounds of antibiotics since the first of the year due to upper respiratory infections, and had Pneumonia in the month of May.

I am currently on the following drug list, of which I am going to omit the dosage for now:

Fuzeon
Reyataz
Issentress
Norvir
Neurontin
Cymbalta
