HIV! You know, AIDS, as a doctor explained to me and, like this:
'The tip of the iceberg of everything that happens after it, HIV, causes us, after entering our bodies!
Fatigue or fatigue are two different names for wasting syndrome, which will have a link at the end of the text for further explanation. Therefore, it should be noted my personal experience with the issue of fatigue, hair loss and the summation of things.
But I often try to explain, even in other contexts:
- "Dude, you're adding up!" And I get:
- "You ***** I'm not crazy, things are happening"!
But I didn't tell them and them that it's not happening, that the psychosomatic is a scienceNot a bog of madness!
Fatigue is common among people with HIV. There are many causes and medicines to cure it.
Like it or not, HIV infection is a chronic disease.
HIV as a cause of fatigue. HIV is a chronic (long-term) infection and the body produces an immune response against it. People with HIV spend a lot of energy because they are constantly fighting the virus, so fatigue can develop slowly as a consequence of HIV itself.
Thus, high viral load is particularly associated with fatigue. Anti-HIV therapy often slows the production of HIV in the body and many people acquire more energy after taking anti-HIV drugs.
# 2 Fatigue Or Fatigue-Related HIV Medication
But even if anti-HIV drugs improve energy levels. Therefore, some may also cause fatigue, especially in the first weeks of therapy.
If you suspect that one of your anti-HIV medicines is causing you fatigue, a change in treatment may help. First, rule out other causes for fatigue and discuss with your doctor your treatment options.
In addition, drugs used to treat opportunistic infections, such as co-trimoxazole, dapsone and pyrimine - used to treat PCP (Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia) and Toxoplasmosis - as well as ganciclovir, to treat CMV (cytomegalovirus) can also cause fatigue. Folic acid can be taken as treat.
# HIV Treatment is Long Term Treatment
If your symptoms are caused by your mechanization, and you cannot stop taking it, you may be treated with a blood transfusion. This causes a rapid rise in red blood cells, but it is not a long-term solution. Transfusions have a number of disadvantages, such as transmission of infections, including CMV. Injections of a synthetic hormone called erythropoietin, which stimulates red blood cell production, may be another short-term option.
# 3 Vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
These symptoms may be caused by low levels of certain vitamins and minerals. A nutritious, balanced diet can reduce its occurrence. Consult an HIV dietitian about minimizing fatigue through dietary changes and supplementation.
Even if you are eating well, you may not be absorbing the good nutrients from food due to diarrhea, stomach microbes or opportunistic infections. Your doctor can investigate and treat the cause of vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
# 5 Other Medical Causes for Fatigue or Fatigue
Some opportunistic infections (MAI - Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare, bacterial species that cause opportunistic infections and tuberculosis) and certain cancers can lead to fatigue and chronic pain. Treatment should be directed to the infection.
Low testosterone levels can cause fatigue, and steroids help give you energy and build muscle in conjunction with regular exercise. “Do not self-medicate and seek medical advice before doing meaningless and dangerous things, we only have one liver and it is very complicated to solve problems in it”! And when we take antiretrovirals, the liver already has a lot of problems to take care of.
Be friends with your liver and take another action
# Another attitude to reduce fatigue!
Take action to increase your energy levels. Moderate exercise improves energy levels and immune function. So, try to consider an appropriate exercise routine. Rearranging at home and work can save you energy.

Sleep, stress and depression.
It may also be a consequence of disturbed sleep. Try to establish a routine that balances work, relaxation, sleep and socialization.
Consider complementary therapies, such as massage, acupuncture, to relieve anxiety or fatigue. Reducing coffee, alcohol and drug intake also helps reduce fatigue.
Stress and depression can cause fatigue. Consult your doctor about medication or advice.
For example, place objects within easy reach and sit down while preparing meals.

Look that! When the disaster struck in my life I was like a pinball ball, hitting from side to side until I fell between the flipers !!!
Then the ball went to the support house.
Check it out.
I could barely get along with one person there, another would come to make fun of me, bother me, contest in short, grieve me. Yes, it was a Hell!
But it was also a place where I could sleep without being in the open. Without starving. Do you strange the statements?
Well, I've had a lot of friends in this life, but I've also flinched with a lot of them, and I'll never know for sure why, the only person who could give me shelter under those circumstances surprised me by not giving it!
Not that time, in this sad moment. But you have sheltered me in other circumstances and I have no right to censor you.
The fact is that there were still a few, but no one cared about me!
In any case, in the support house, which was a hell of a literal, visceral hell, one of the few things I had to do was read at night. And I read leaning the book on a table whose lamp was less than a meter away from her, which would make me think of a lock card, so to speak!
