... knees were becoming so weak that I couldn't stand up without a support. I also noticed that my feet became very sensitive so that I can't walk without wearing thickly padded shoes. My fingers are numb and feel swollen all the time, especially after a night sleep. I think these symptoms are caused by Truvada, however my doctor told me to stick to the regimen because most AIDS drugs I have tried cause severe rashes. My CD4 was 95 before starting the regimen..
Can somebody please answer these questions?
(a). "Are these arthritis-like and peripheral neurologic symptoms temporay or long term? Or will they go away if I continue this regimen?"
(b). "Is there another NRTI drug I can use to replace Truvada?"

Thank you
