From this study (2 days ago):
A year in on complera and I am feeling extreme fatigue and unusual tiredness.
From this study (2 months ago):
recurring cellulitis infection? Was hospitilized twice. 1st time left leg was infected, 1.5 weeks later was hospitalized for infection in right leg. Treated with Clindamycin both times and the infection cleared up. redness, swelling and warmness to the tough have all came back on my right leg. It started off small and slowly got bigger over time. skin is inflamed but not raised. Doctor said maybe Erythema Nodosum, but it is not itchy at all and there are no bumps or other rash like symptoms. It feels like an infection. both times I was hospitalized lasted for 4 days. I was given IV antibiotics there and then sent home on 4 days of antibiotics the 1st time and 1 week of antibiotics the 2nd time, all clindamycin. After both incidents, the redness returned a few days after the antibiotics were finished. Starting off small and subtle, fading in and out over the next couple days and gradually growing in size and migrating down the leg from just below the knee to a few inches above the ankles.

You need to go have Ultrasound. I had your same symptoms and turns out to be blood clots in the left leg. Started as pain in left leg in a 8-10 inch straight line above knee, inner thigh. Was warm to the touch, and tender to the touch. But only along the vein. Redness did not appear for a couple days. By then my leg was stiff and seemed solid and swollen. The pain then went below my knee. Go get Ultrasound immediately! Blood clots can kill you.
