  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • Been on the ART for a few weeks and have developed bouts of nausea, vomiting and cold sweats. I have followed mfr guidelines and took medication with food. I take the medication in the afternoon, but the following day I get sick as soon as I get out of bed in the morning and intermittently into the afternoon even if I do eat.

  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • I was prescribed tenofovir since 2006 in many of the combination medications for hIV treatment. doctors did not inform me of the risks. In May of 2014 I was diagnosed with CKD 3. Tis wen un checks all theses years. I was taken off Atripla "to see if my leg pain would go away" and restarted 3 months later on Complera and within days I started suffering from full body pain. The doctors insisted i stay on the medication. Then i was prescribed Stribild in 2013 and my GFR declined to 36. No doctor has yet to warm me of any side effects even when i ask they say there are no side effects. How can someone go to a doctor 6 times a year and have blood drawn 6 times or more a year and they not know you have a kidney problem.? No attorney will take my case.

  • What causes a high concentration of mature mucus strands in the body
    I had a Lapband removed via emergency surgery a year ago. Shortly after was infected with HIV. Began ART regiment three months post infection. My body has responded with to ART regiment viral load went from 85000 to 85 copies at last measurement in January. Three months into the ART regiment I noticed significant mucus strand development,noticible in the eyes, stool, nasal passages, accompanied by subcutaneous edema with presense of highly developed mucus strands in the subcuteneous layer I had an endospocy and colonoscopy that were normal except minor ulceration in the stomach. Additionally dark circles under my eyes and I am resting as much as possible. Stool has been turning dark green then pale, and is not directly related to dietary intake. What causes mucus stranding and is this a condition? Whatever is going on is increasing in severity. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.











    Stool breaks apart in to very clear biphercated sections silimar behaviour of the mucus strands. Stool looks like cat food dumped into the toilet. Does anyone know what this condition is?
